Preparing customers and partners for cloud updates done right
Mon, Nov 7th 2016 8:53a   Rene Winkelmeyer
One thing that always bothered me in the past when working with cloud-based products was the “surprise factor”. While it’s a big advantage of a cloud solution that an update is immediately available for all users – it can also be a big pain. When I talk about the “surprise factor” I’m talking about the availability of new features, changed UI or changed behaviour. Depending on the friendliness of your provider you may get an information that an update

Time flies by – my first 6 months with Salesforce.com
Wed, Nov 2nd 2016 10:06p   Rene Winkelmeyer
Yesterday I had my “6-months anniversary” with Salesforce.com. I hardly noticed. Why? Because time flies by in this company. It’s now (a bit more) than 6 months ago that I made the decision to change – once again – my profession when I joined Salesforce.com as Senior Developer Evangelist. It was and is a blast. The company has a vibe across all levels. I didn’t have a single, boring moment. Here’s an excerpt of some of the things I did – so you

My 1st Dreamforce – it was a blast
Thu, Oct 20th 2016 10:38a   Rene Winkelmeyer
Dreamforce 2016 is now a few days ago. It was my 1st one. It was a blast. By any means. I am still sorting out all the impressions, all the ideas, all the talks. It is an experience on it’s own. Here are a few of my takeaways (for you and myself). Trailhead Does Trailhead need an explanation? We presented a massive experience for developers and admins in our very own Trailhead zone. The zone covered the whole Moscone West ground level (approx 130,000 sqft/12,000 sqm). Open Theaters, an I

Three in a row – speaking at SUTOL, ISBG and meetIT

The year starts to wrap-up – so it’s a great time to finish it with some speaking engagements. So I’m happy to say that I’ll be present at in Prague, Oslo and Milan in the upcoming weeks. Prague – SUTOL – 10.-11.11.2016 I’ve been in Prague last year – and it was a great event. This year it has been extended from a one day event to two days. Oslo – ISBG – 30.11.2016 That’s a first timer for me. I’ve never been to Oslo

TrailFindr – or how we’re helping visually impaired to navigate at the Trailhead Zone
Mon, Oct 3rd 2016 11:53a   Rene Winkelmeyer
One of our core values at Salesforce is, that we believe in giving back to the community. We also believe that technology should be leveraged for the best purpose – for helping people, every day. At our recent Salesforce World Tour in London we organized a CoderDojo to teach visually impaired kids how to code (kudos to the BBC for joining us). Have you ever thought about or experienced what challenges are the visually impaired facing day to day in environments they don’t know? Like:

Developer eXperience is important
Wed, Sep 28th 2016 9:08a   Rene Winkelmeyer
During the last weeks I had a lot of fun stuff to code. And I was able to use the tools, the methods, the languages that I like. And that’s awesome, because a great Developer eXperience when working with systems and code is important. But what does that mean – “Developer eXperience”? To me it is basically one thing: make my life as a developer easy! Don’t force me to use only single IDE (but if so – make it rock solid and state-of-the-art) As as a deve

Modernising an app (dev platform) can be like refurbishing your house
Tue, Sep 27th 2016 4:53p   Rene Winkelmeyer
Recently I read a lot of blog posts and other communications about “app (dev platform) modernisation”. In some areas it’s an ongoing talk. When I read and hear about that I’m always remembered about refurbishing a house. Imagine you’ve your house. It’s 25 years old. You lived in there for a long time. You like it (otherwise you won’t live there). And from time to time you’re going to improve it. New lights in the entrance, a new and more secure f

An era ends. Pete(r) Janzen’s last working day at IBM is TODAY. Time to say the most important things… Pete, it was always a pleasure to work (and party ;-)) with you. I want to say THANK YOU – for everything you’ve done! You were and will always be part of the community. PS: Those who don’t know him – Pete was the product manager mainly for IBM Notes and Domino (server and AppDev) in the last 16 years. So everyone can fairly say that an era ends now.
