I just got word that I have been approved to be a new Lynda.com author! They want me to design a series of courses on Salesforce development. They currently have none, so this is very exciting. One of the things I really like about Lynda.com is their commitment to high-quality productions. They are leaders in the area of online video training. The first course will likely be very introductory (such […]

For a limited time, you can get two Ebooks for the price of one.  You have an enormous library to choose from that covers everything about web, mobile, game, big data and cloud development.

AdvancedDeveloperCertVideo

If you are currently pursuing or even just thinking about pursuing the Force.com Advanced Developer Certification, I strongly suggest you check out this video. It is a recording of a panel discussion held at the most recent Dreamforce (late 2013), in which 3 people (seen in the image on the left) who have recently passed the Advanced Developer Certification shared their personal stories.

webrtc-plus-goinstant

It is very likely you missed the announcement less than two years ago about Salesforce acquiring a Canadian-based company named GoInstant. It is also likely that even if you attended Dreamforce in late 2013, you missed a very informative session titled, “Build Real-time Multi-User Apps with Visualforce, GoInstant and AngularJS“. From what I can tell, not much fuss has been made so far about the Backend-as-a-Service provider that was founded […]

Training Review: Force.com Training on Pluralsight.com

logo-v4

Anyone that reads my blog knows that I am big fan (and regular subscriber) of the Pluralsight training videos. I cannot imagine staying up to date as a programmer without them. At this time, there are only a limited number of courses that cover the Force.com platform (8 to be exact), but I expect new titles will be added very soon. I really think that viewing these courses can be […]

Google Charts and ASP.NET

MLSStats

I recently had the opportunity to redesign a very small web application that was used to display residential housing statistics. The previous application was created over 10 years ago and as you can imagine, now leaves a lot to be desired. It was an ASP.NET application that used many post back operations to render charts using a very limited 3rd party charting tool. It performed slowly and lacked a lot […]
