Quick Winter '16 Glance

In case you missed The New Salesforce broadcast event, here is what happened (in 5 words or less):

Lightning Experience was introduced!

There are a lot of things the developers should be excited about, but also there is a big learning curve coming up. If you haven't worked with Lightning Components previously, I strongly recommend you to get on it as soon as possible, especially if you're a developer with no or minimal JavaScript knowledge.

Taking the DEV501 [*cough*] Platform Developer II Assignment for a Test Drive

Over a year ago I wrote my first guest blog post - The Salesforce.com Advanced Developer Certification Experience (501). Shortly after the post went live, I was told that my post has hit very high number of visits. A few months later, I was invited to Code Coverage - The podcast for Developers using the Salesforce1 Platform to share my experience once again. Surprisingly, this episode is the most listened to, which tells me one thing - There is a tremendous interest in the community about the Salesforce.com Advanced Developer (DEV501) certification.

If you're planning on getting DEV501 certified Platform Developer II certified and you've researched around, you must have found quite a few blog posts, answers and tips, which are helpful (some more than others), but at the end of the day, most of it is high level content which leaves you with a lot of questions around the actual assignment.

First Time at Dreamforce? Me Too, Let's Connect!

It's that time of the year... That time that gets over 150,000 people excited about the one of a kind event - Dreamforce '15!

For a few years in a row I have been missing out on all of the awesomeness that everyone is talking about, the stories that I keep hearing over and over again from colleagues and friends, the photos, the videos, the blog posts about the amazing time at Dreamforce... And I have to admit, it's all my fault. I have been hoping that the companies that I worked for will eventually add me to the Dreamforce contingent. Unfortunately that did not happen.

Last year I promised that the worst case scenario is that I will be sponsoring myself and will not miss out Dreamforce '15, not matter what! So, here we are, ready to rock!
