Salesforce week 2
Sun, Nov 27th 2016 11:43p   Mikkel Heisterberg
So another week went and passed. I got my phone number ported and I'm now fully setup technology wise. I spent the entire week reading, reading, reading getting ready for my first certification which is a Salesforce Certified Administrator. Aiming to take it Monday or Tuesday this week. I've used both the online courses from the Salesforce help but also a lot of Trailhead. I like the latter much more as it validates the assignments you complete in a training org. The online courses are just do

Salesforce week 1

So that was week 1. I started with Salesforce on Tuesday and I'm up and running with my new MacBook Pro and a new phone. Well I'm not actually using my new phone as I'm porting my old number over to Salesforce but it should be ported by Thursday next week. IT wise everything is pretty smooth and between TechForce and Concierge (IT helpdesk and IT self-service) it was very easy. Everything here is done in the cloud if possible and everything is using SAML and/or two factor auth. Either using Y

JSONata looks very nice
Mon, Nov 14th 2016 12:44p   Mikkel Heisterberg
While JSON is a very nice and concise data format it lacks the structure and query capabilities of XML and XPath. Often times querying JSON leads to line on line of code to do proper error checking and retrieve the proper value and - if need be - a default value. Meet JSONata! JSONata is a query language plus so much more. I invite you to look at the slides from the recent IBM tech talk on the matter or visit the JSONata Exerciser to try it out. JSONata is also available as a NPM module.

My parents mobile broadband connection in their summer house seemed a little flaky and my father asked me how we could monitor it. Easy I thought. I would simply grab a Raspberry pi and one of the available tools so I googled and found a nice tutorial. Getting it to work was easy enough but after having this run for a few days the results were weird and didn't match what we saw while there. So what do any self-respecting programmer do? Write his/her own of course... :) So I broke out my langu

Adding a new git remote to an existing project
Sat, Nov 12th 2016 10:16a   Mikkel Heisterberg
Today I had a project that I already had in git and I had an existing remote I had already pushed to. Now I wanted to add github as well so I added the repo on github and initialized the repo with a README.mf and a LICENSE file. After adding the remote to the local repo and attempting to pull from it I got the following error: fatal: refusing to merge unrelated histories Apparent the way the merge command work has been changed in git v. 2.9 to make sure you do not mix histories by accident. To

Revisiting my decrease in blogging year over year
Sat, Nov 12th 2016 9:36a   Mikkel Heisterberg
Almost 4 years ago I posted about my decrease in blogging year over year (Decrease in blogging year over year - is it a problem?) and thought it would be interesting to revisit the subject. For one because I've actually blogged more this year than in previous years and because I'll be moving to a new technology and I suspect blogging will increase.

I'm writing this not sure who - if any - will ever read this. Sometimes writing is like therapy and can help you get on and move on. So - dear IntraVision - I'm leaving you. It's not you. It's me. It's with both a heavy heart and tremendous excitement I'm finally posting this. As of November 14 I'm closing a big chapter in my life and career by leaving IntraVision. It has been a difficult decision and not one I've taken lightly but I decided it was time to step out of the shadows of ye

Minimal web.xml for authenticated webapp on WAS 8.5.5.x

I was doing a simple servlet based web application that should on WebSphere Application Server 8.5.5.6 the other day. The servlet should require authentication. I really wanted to avoid using web.xml and go annotation based but it turned out that it wasn't possible - at least for me. Servlets are secured using the @ServletSecurity and you specify required role(s) and HTTP constraints e.g. is HTTPS required etc. I added the following annotations: @WebServlet(urlPatterns={"/"}, initParams={
