Time For Giving Thanks November 23, 2016 - I know, I know…I KNOW — its been awhile since I last blogged. Ever since June I’ve pretty much been a one-man consulting shop and one has to pay the bills. Throw a couple of talks and a Dreamforce performance with Apex and the Limits in there as well as numerous gigs with a local […]
Dreamforce 2016 is Upon Us September 28, 2016 - As I sit in my home office preparing to start the day, I can feel my mind wander towards what lies ahead for me in just a few short days. I’m reminded of the fact that I’ve been the three Dreamforce events in the past three years and how each has been a completely different […]
Lightning, Are You Ready? September 8, 2016 - Salesforce.com’s new UI (and design paradigm) Lightning Experience (LEX for short), has been making impressions since it was announced. Admins & user’s alike have had over a year now to poke and prod at it with a stick. I even know of a few folks that claim to have LEX turned on in their production […]
Catching Up With the Community August 12, 2016 - First off, please accept my apologies for letting things slack around here a bit. Since May things have been absolutely crazy. As previously mentioned two big things happened in June and then there was a brief period of professional catch up being played, followed by another three big things, (there was a fourth-ish, but lets […]
Change is Good June 8, 2016 - Okay, I’d like to tell you this is more about my lightning stuff — and its not but I promise to get that stuff wrapped up, but this past month has been a whirlwind of change and all for the good, (albeit a bit stressful). I have changed employers. Due to circumstances beyond control, my […]
9904 — Is it an Illuminati Symbol? Or Just Good Fun? April 21, 2016 - Do you know this woman? She seems innocent enough, but stick with me my friends as I take you down the rabbit hole, behind the looking glass, make you swallow the red pill (or was it blue, I never remember). I’m about to blow your mind! Today was Chris Duarte day and I can’t think […]
Anyone Can Code April 6, 2016 - Last week I had the opportunity to help someone who was learning to code through one of the many different programs available to us, the Salesforce community. Whether you’re learning from the RAD Women program, Trailhead, one of the Salesforce provided classes, or simply teaching yourself, you will find at times that you hit a […]
Everyone’s an Admin March 30, 2016 - Okay, so I had part two of my lightning components exploration all planned out but — I haven’t executed it yet, life just sorta got in the way. To that end, awhile back I recorded a new song: “Everyone’s An Admin” and had sent the rough draft to a few people and even performed it […]
Trailhead on the Road March 24, 2016 - Today is the Salesforce World Tour Chicago event. Sadly, I’m here…writing this…whilst many of my colleagues are in Chicago, but I digress. I’m here for a purpose (besides billable hours). At this event, there is a flyer being circulated talking about this wonderful thing called “Trailhead on the Road” and while I didn’t create this […]
Thinking About Lightning Application Architecture: Part 1 March 16, 2016 - One of the things that really surprised me when I started poking at custom Lightning Components/Apps was the fact that I truly had to handle navigation from scratch. As a developer, we’re taught to never re-invent the wheel and to write code that is re-usable up front. Over the next few posts, I hope to […]
