Great “Buy One Get One Free” Offer from Packt Publishing


Packt Publishing has a GREAT promotion going on right now to celebrate the release of their 2000th title. 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. What I really like about this publisher is that they are strong supporters of the open source community. […]

Motivation and Tips for Passing the Advanced Developer Certification


If you are currently pursuing or even just thinking about pursuing the 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


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


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 […]

Why a .NET Developer Loves


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 […]

Book Review: Visualforce Development Cookbook


Not a book for beginners, but GREAT for seasoned Apex developers I recently had the honor of reviewing the recently published, Visualforce Development Cookbook. The code recipes are great and could really go far in demonstrating the potential of the platform. It is obvious that the author, Keir Bowden has implemented many, if not all of these recipes in real-world scenarios. However, I think this is a dangerous book for […]

Custom Components Not Rendering Properly


After much searching, I have finally figured out what was causing two frustrating issues I have run into several times and thought I would share it with everyone. Both issues involve creating a Custom Component that includes HTML. If you use an iframe tag to reference an existing Visualforce page and do not include a certain switch in your URL, the component will not be rendered properly and instead of […]

Anatomy of a Great System Document and Why you should Bother


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 […]
