New Job at Forward Thinking Incapsulate

I am VERY excited to announce that 3 weeks ago I accepted a full-time position with Salesforce partner and consulting firm, Incapsulate. Even though they are based out of Washington DC, I will be working 100% remotely from my home in Louisiana. I have long wanted to work with a team of really sharp developers, like the ones at Incapsulate, because I know that is the best way to really grow as […]

Want to know what you need to know to be ahead of the curve in the world of Software Development? Look no further than the following YouTube video, which was recorded during last years Dreamforce. It was a talk about “Modern Architectures: Above the Platform, Beyond the App” and it details all the things YOU (the next generation of programmer) needs to know to be successful in the new generation […]

Is There Really No Work-life Balance for Software Developers?

balance

I was reading this interview with the CEO of Microsoft, Satya Nadella and one thing he said really stood out to me. When asked what advice he would have for readers struggling with work-life balance, he responded with, “There’s no such thing as balance.” Really? Well, if you are the CEO of Microsoft, I suppose there might not be, but I do not think that is true for all people […]

Curious about the Sara Has No Limits thing?

You may be wondering why I title my blog, “Sara Has No Limits”. One might guess that it has something to do with the limits that Salesforce imposes. Good guess, especially since I have now immersed myself into the world of Salesforce and Force.com development, but that actually has nothing to do with it. You see, I have been an independent software developer since 2005, and in 2009, I wrote […]

10 Days Free Unlimited Access to lynda.com

lyndaoffer

As a lynda.com author, I have access to their partner program which allows me to offer you all a free 10 day unlimited trial version of lynda.com. Unfortunatley, the only course they have about Salesforce right now is the beginner course I made about Developing with Visualforce, but they have a very vast library that contains some really terrific stuff. If you have never seen their stuff, I highly encourage […]

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

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 […]
