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 […]

Tools_ce2c5a

Last week I sat in on a webinar titled, “Build Customer Centric Applications Using the Salesforce Toolkit for .NET“, presented by Wade Wegner and Richard Seroter. As a .NET developer, I was excited to see a new way of connecting Salesforce via .NET. But, I was REALLY excited when I heard that the new toolkit was open-source and provided native libraries that utilized the async and await model in .NET. I […]

Approved as a new Lynda.com Author

lynda_logo1k-d_72x72

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 […]

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. All three of the speakers had very […]

Add Audio/Video Conferencing to Any Visualforce Page with GoInstant

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 […]

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 […]
