New Mini Series Starting Soon October 7, 2015 - One of my absolute favorite conversations at Dreamforce this year happened during my last night in San Francisco. I was out until the wee hours of the morning with a group of people and happen to be fortunate enough to sit next to SteveMo and Adam Daw. For those of you that don’t know Adam, […]
So Long DF15, It Was VERY Personal September 21, 2015 - Introduction: I began composing this entry upon returning to my hotel room after the closing of the Benioff/Harris Q & A session. I wanted to capture what was going through my head (and heart) before I lost it. I didn’t get to finish the whole thing as there were places to go and people to […]
This Time It’s Personal September 9, 2015 - Shortly after Dreamforce last year, I talked about what I felt made the Salesforce world so different (hint, the community). I still believe that very much, and for that reason I’m looking forward to Dreamforce ’15 more than ever. I’m staffing the “Coding for Admins” booth in the admin zone on Wednesday from 10-Noon (PST). […]
How To Create A Sublime Snippet September 2, 2015 - Those of you who know me, know that I absolutely cannot stand using bloated IDEs for development work. My disdain for Eclipse started way back when I was a day to day Java developer. Most of my Java projects however were so complex with framework stacked up on framework that one absolutely NEEDED to use […]
My Top 5 Sessions for DF15 August 26, 2015 - Keeping in the spirit of Dreamforce-based topics, today I will highlight my top 5 sessions for Dreamforce ’15. These are from my agenda and not by any means a “Best of DF”, but rather the ones that I’m excited for because they apply specifically to my interests/career path, and my idea of fun. So in […]
My Top 5 Must Haves at Dreamforce August 12, 2015 - Admittedly, I’m an over-packer. I pack all sorts of crap that I know I’m absolutely NOT going to need, but I can’t seem to help myself. However, there are some things that I absolutely cannot go with without. Here are my top 5 (in no certain order): Comfortable Shoes — likely more than one pair. […]
Trailhead Live == Awesome Sauce July 31, 2015 - For the past few weeks there has been a push amongst the various user groups to participate in the #SummerOfTrailhead. Yesterday the Wisconsin User group got their chance to particpate and I have to say, it was truly awesome (or is that #clawesome cc:@TheChrisDuarte?). As you hopefully know by now, Trailhead is a free, fun, […]
Is It Dreamforce Yet July 20, 2015 - For many of us, our year seems to be measured by the number of days in-between Dreamforce conferences. We wait with anticipation for the release of the band name for the gala, the keynote speakers, the agenda builder, and everything else that comes with Dreamforce. For me, I enjoy all of that just as much […]
My Top 5 Reasons for Attending Dreamforce July 15, 2015 - Dreamforce is right around the corner. Many people are probably still begging their boss to go, or perhaps still trying to decide whether or not they should attend. We all attend for different reasons I am sure, but I’m also sure that many of us attend for the same reasons as well. If you are […]
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 […]
