.gitignore for MavensMate
Mon, Jan 9th 2017 12:02a   Mikkel Heisterberg
Note to self... Exclude the workspace and project files as well as /config from Git so a .gitignore file should be something iike this: *-project *-workspace config So in bash something like: $ echo *-workspace > .gitignore $ echo *-project >> .gitignore $ echo config >> .gitignore

Again study, study, study... Since last week I completed 2 certifications which takes me to 4 of the 5 I need. The last is Certified Salesforce Service Cloud Consultant which is looking pretty tricky but I have to find some material on the exam. Did my second round of volunteering - felt good. Closing off the year having volunteered 13 hours. Okay I think. Looking into how I can help for a Salesforce project in Africa. Interesting. From here on it's xmas, then new years and it's time to thin

All (well most) of this week was spent - you guessed it! - studying for exams... I tried to take the Salesforce Certified Advanced Admin on Wednesday but due to hickups in the system at Webassessor I had to exit the exam and the new time slot I got I couldn't do. So the exam is now scheduled for Monday. It's going to be exciting. Whether I pass or not I'm at the point where I need to see some actual questions to gauge what they are asking for instead of simply trying to guess. My take on exam

Inspecting Force.com IDE traffic
Tue, Dec 13th 2016 9:21a   Mikkel Heisterberg
For my studies for the Certified Salesforce Advanced Admin I needed to understand the various code deployment options for the force.com platform including the Force.com IDE based on Eclipse. Installing the IDE was pretty straight forward and creating a force.com project and adding an APEX trigger was likewise easy. As I like to understand what's going on under the covers I went to inspect the traffic but of course everything is encrypted using TLS so I went to my favorite tool for these kinds o

It's been another week of training, training, training. I've watched a LOT of video and started the week studying for the AppBuilder certification only to find out that maybe Certified Advanced Admin was a better place to go after Certified Admin. So Wednesday or so I rebooted and refocused on that certification which really has set me a while back on making another cert by this week or early next week. We'll have to see how it goes. This week I made a new level on Trailhead and I'm now at t

I spent 2 days in Stockholm at the Nordic Winter Summit. The summit gathered all of Salesforce from Denmark, Sweden and Finland (no Norway office yet) for two days of get together. It was 2 very nice days hearing about that went down the last year, what's on the top of the agenda currently and what's the plan for the next year. We heard about some of the great volunteering that's being done by Salesforce employees across the Nordics and what cool new customers we have. We also saw demos of so

Salesforce week 2

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
Sun, Nov 20th 2016 8:37p   Mikkel Heisterberg
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.

Simple speedtest app deployed using heroku
Sat, Nov 12th 2016 10:43a   Mikkel Heisterberg
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
