SlideDeck

On Tuesday I had the honor of speaking at a Dreamforce 14 session titled, “Career Strategies for Developers Transitioning to Salesforce”. A few people at the session asked whether my slide deck would be made available and I promised them I would post it on my blog, so that is the main purpose for this post. If you are interested in the slides from my session, you can find them […]

Career and Survival Strategies for Software Developers

Questions

I just watched a Pluralsight course that I think EVERY software developer should watch. It is for developers brand new to the field, those that have been developing for only a few years, and those that have been developing for many years. The course is general and non-technical, but is highly informative, extremely insightful, and remarkably hilarious. The course is titled, “Career and Survival Strategies for Software Developers” by Dan […]

Back up your Phone Right NOW!!!!

PhoneBackup

Last Friday evening, I stopped at a local convenience store for just a few seconds. Twenty minutes later, I reached towards my phone cradle to make a call and realized my phone was gone. Stolen, you ask? It certainly appeared that way. I acted quickly. I returned home and immediately called my carrier to report the phone as stolen. They issued a block that would prevent anyone from using the […]

Approved as a new Lynda.com Author

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 […]

Why a .NET Developer Loves Force.com

gbrarams

When I graduated from College 20 years ago, I had no idea how much would change in the world of Software Development. Back then, the college I attended taught students COBOL as the primary language (and yes, I realize that some people reading this will not even know what that is). It is lucky for me that I love learning new things. My entire career has been one VERY long […]

Anatomy of a Great System Document and Why you should Bother

SystemDocTemplate

As a professional writer, I admit that I probably focus on documentation more than your average software developer. Over the years, I have learned quite a bit about what goes into making a GREAT system document. I have also noted the extreme lack of good quality system documentation at many of my client locations. Unfortunately, next to initial design and testing, documentation probably comes in last as far as the […]
