Getting Started with the Salesforce Command Line

Every day is a command line day for me these days, and it’s incredibly fun, addictive and easier than you think. In the now infamous words of Mr Peter Chittum: “Do Not Fear the Command Line” Of course, I am talking a bit more than just Command Lines in general here – I am talking Read more about Getting Started with the Salesforce Command Line[…]

But hopefully one Read more about Welcome Mats Outstaying their Welcome?[…]

Be more Agile with Continuous Improvement

Earlier this year we talked about becoming more agile and two key items to get you started on your agility journey. Visual representation of the work in progress Retrospectives Now, let’s admit it, there was an underlying theme: Incremental. And why do we want to deliver incrementally?

Make the Jump from JavaScript

Have you made the jump to Lightning yet? No, seriously, have you?

Mike’s Prediction Builder: Will Salesforce be Slacking Off at Dreamforce?

Ok, hands up – who thought I was slacking off on the blog front? Well I’m back!

Salesforcey Events – Get Involved (and Speak)!

Following on from one of my favourite themes – Salesforce-y events – but on a slight contrary tangent from last week’s post… When I came back from Barcelona off the back of dreamOle I was asked for my ‘why’ and about the benefits of getting involved in stuff like this. As yes it does take some Read more about Salesforcey Events – Get Involved (and Speak)![…]

Bright Ideas: May 2018

I’ve got a great idea! Well, technically Andrew Fawcett does. Over the years he has had countless ideas, and recently he and some other people had the (frankly fantastic) idea that he would be really good working at Salesforce. I’ve been “tailing” him ever since he jumped ship… So what’s he up to? Well, this Read more about Bright Ideas: May 2018[…]
