My DF15 Top Ten People To Meet July 1, 2015 - …also known as “The I am completely ill-prepared for this week’s post and need to write something” edition. Everybody does it. As we get closer to Dreamforce people start dropping their “to do” lists, and “things you should check out while at Dreamforce” lists, etc. Among these lists one can normally find someones list of […]
Knockin’ On Kevin’s Door June 24, 2015 - Often times, even I don’t have all the answers…I know “shocking” right? In those times of need, we all need that one person we can go to, for me that person is @Kevin Swiggum (my boss at Radial Web, Inc.). I’m sure coming to my rescue can get pretty annoying at times, but he’s been […]
Streams of Lightning: Part 5 June 10, 2015 - So last week I completely lost track of time and did not get part 5 out the door. For that I apologize, I’ll make it up to you somehow, someday, someway. For now however, you’ll have to settle for me being one week late with the finale to the Streams of Lightning series. When we […]
Streams of Lightning: Part Four May 27, 2015 - Last week we updated our app to show all of the Poll Question Options as buttons within our parent Poll Question Component. However, it still “does nothing.” What we really need to do is get it to interact somehow, and we will do this by supplying our buttons with a function to call in order […]
Streams of Lightning: Part Three May 20, 2015 - As you may or may not know, I was out in San Francisco last week attending my first MVP Summit. For this reason, I did not post part three of my current lightning tutorial. <sarcasm>Since you’re no doubt waiting directly on the edge of your seat<sarcasm>, lets get right back to it. Last week we left off […]
Streams of Lightning Part Deux May 6, 2015 - Last week I showed you how to make a simple custom lightning component and make it available to the new Lightning App Builder that is going GA with the Summer ’15 Release.  This week, we will create a simple custom Poll Question object and a Poll Option object that will have the Poll object as a […]
Streams of Lightning. A Simple Lightning App Part One April 28, 2015 - Ever since Dreamforce 13 and the announcement of Salesforce1 I’ve been itching to get at some mobile dev. I couldn’t wait to get started on it when we returned. However my excitement dwindled when I realized that there was very little one could do from a development standpoint with Salesforce1 at that point. Fast forward […]
Trailhead Lightning Module is a Major Charge! April 10, 2015 - If you haven’t heard about Salesforce Trailhead by now, allow me to help you out from underneath that rock (I kid because I care). Salesforce Trailhead was launched at Dreamforce ’14 and if you haven’t tried it out yet, its incredibly cool. I’ve been in a number of different communities and aside from Python/Django (who […]
Testing Tidbits April 8, 2015 - Today I’m going to talk about two of my go-to “tools” (for lack of a better term) when it comes to testing functionality in any Salesforce org that I do work in. I don’t always do these things…(but when I do….*never mind*) though I’m starting to do them more often and its been working for me. […]
My Top Five Parodies for Salesforce April 1, 2015 - I  get asked quite a bit what song is coming next. I’ve helped others write several parodies of existing songs and while I don’t generally perform the parodies, here is a list of what I have coming up next. I may or may not be performing them on my own, but we’ll see: Top 5 […]
