See you next year ForceDotCom

Hello there long time no see? I have been very very lazy and sloppy in updating this blog for quite some time. This have been pacing around, as usual Force.com is changing before The Flash could run half way across the world and return. I missed a post about Winter 12 release and by the time I could muster courage to write one, lo Spring 12 is here.

Oh well so is holiday season and a complete new year is standing outside. So where have I been? Aah, for one, published a book to help all those ForceDotCom Geeks out there. The book would come out in the month of Jan and a big should out goes to the community and Salesforce for being so cool. 

You can preorder the book out here for now, it is also available as RAW e-book. 


So what next now? I have already prepared quite some surprises for the people who want to get into serious coding but let this year pass on. Plus some great deeds coming on SCRM front with Salesforce and Radian 6.
I am revamping this blog, might as well move it to my wordpress server. As you can see a new design is underway and yes for once, I am going to stop these stupid post where I do nothing but give updates. Lets wait for some more days and come back fresh!!!!

Happy holidays,
See you next year
May the force be with you.

Another presentation for the London Salesforce Developer Group using mobile app. 
When it comes to Salesforce development, we all know what it takes to deliver stuff. Having a certified professional helps you gain a knowledgeable partner but what about the things such as common sense?  We all know how to deliver things on client requirements but what about things that are not mentioned by the client. We will be discussing in details things that will enhance the user experience, focus on tips to read your customers mind and have a bit of perspective on the user experience.

Cache me if you can: What you should know before daring to set URL parameter on visualforce

If someone gave me a pence for every time there was an SOQL query in an APEX Class without using Limit or a condition during a code review, I could afford a Lamborgini this month. Sigh. If only. We make it a habit of going digging for data, at the very moment we need it. The crux of this problem happens when you have chain classes which are independent of each other. Each class needs the reference from a single record and we have to query for that record every single time.

While we don't see it, every SOQL query has a cost to it, and it does not go in my Lamborghini fund, however, it should. In a recent project, we had to construct an Account 360 page that could fetch information from different integration points. The page was also called using a live telephony integration, which could pass the phone number for the account. This required an ability to keep in context the Account that was on call.

Passing the Account id in URL parameter was a valid option, however, any manipulatio…

Four secrets to improve the usability of your visualforce/Lightning pages on Salesforce

In the immortal words of a certain machine returning back in time, I am back. For now. After procrastinating for over a year and drafting a lot of rants- I am back with a very important coding lesson for you. For now.

When we are designing a Visualforce page or an app or a lightning component (added that only to trick google) or any web page for that matter, we often tend to wrap up things quickly. Ask anyone on the team, how to design a good User Experience? and the person will immediately throw buzz words like Bootstrap, angular and other useless libraries (did someone squint?)

Ok, Bootstrap, Angular-Js, and all the libraries are really cool and are useful in designing a fabulous UI. They are helpful in creating responsive pages that will work on all the devices but this post is not about those. Nope. For the purpose of this post, all the external libraries and buzzwords you use to decorate your resume are useless. (Adding Angular JS in your resume for a Salesforce consultant posit…
