In this episode we chat with the amazingly productive Dan Appleman (@DanAppleman); if you don’t recognise that name then you can’t have been around the Salesforce development community for very long! Dan makes some excellent points on a variety of topics, including:
- Developing on the platform over the years and how the gotchas have changed
- How the CPU time governor limit is affected by process and workflows
- The joys of working with Salesforce support
- His PluralSight courses:
- Apex for Programmers
- Salesforce for .NET Developers (short course)
- Data Visualisation for Developers
- His book: Advanced Apex Programming (now in the 3rd Edition)
- Industry challenges that have arisen from greater levels of abstraction
- The problems with Salesforce’s ISV program, and how it might impact new developers looking to build and sell Lightning components
- How the Developer Relations Team are awesome
Note: some of my audio and pronounciation goes funky towards the end of this episode. I suffered some technical difficulties that meant I was hearing myself echo at full volume with approximately half a second of delay, I think I know exactly what this feels like now – Lacey
In this episode we chat with Cal Smith (@CloudMech on Twitter). Cal has done many things over the years and has very interesting stories to tell, but he also goes above and beyond to teach others, and the evidence is clear to see on the StackExchange where he’s known as crmprogdev.
Some of the topics discussed include:
- How he got involved with the platform
- How he uses the Salesforce StackExchange and what benefits he thinks it offers
- Mechanical engineering relates to software development
- Air conditioning patents in the auto industry
- The contrast between computing in the past and computing today
We’re still here, and we’re going to be brining more shows in the very near future. In this episode we catch up on things, and get a good overview of Salesforce Shield from Steven.

This episode on Code Coverage the wonderful Chris Duarte (@TheChrisDuarte) talks to us about Trailhead. Chris is the Managing Editor of Trailhead at Salesforce, and if you’ve not heard of Trailhead yet then you must be under a serious pile of rocks. Topics Chris discusses with us include:
- How Chris got involved with Salesforce and subsequently Trailhead
- Where Trailhead fits in within Salesforce
- Bridging the gap between declarative development and coding
- The content available on Trailhead
- What she does as the Managing Editor
- Where to get help, such as the Trailhead forum on the developer boards
- What’s on the roadmap for Trailhead (imagine a @SteveMoForce Safe habbah right here)
- A hint about April fool’s day. Unfortunately, we were a bit late getting the episode up, so you’ve probably already seen Catter!
In this episode of Code Coverage we chat with Peter Knolle (@PeterKnolle), a Force.com MVP who works for Trifecta Technologies. Peter fills us in on developing components with the new Lightning framework.
The topics Peter talks about are:
- How he had to learn to use declarative development first
- Where the Lightning Framework has come from
- How Lightning apps fit in with the platform in general
- What pieces comprise a Lightning Component Bundle
- How two way binding makes dynamic interfaces easy to build
- How Lightning Components interact with Apex and the rest of the system
- Creating interactions between components
- What events are, what types there are and how they can be used
He also suggests that a great way to get started is with the Lightning Component Developer Guide, and developers should also take a look at the excellent Trailhead, including it’s Lightning Component Module. Peter also has more great content available on his blog at peterknolle.com, including some more advanced topics such as using inheritance in Lightning Components.
Also, don’t forget that Lightning Week is coming up so find you local event and join in!
