Episode 1 – Keir Bowden and Developing for Salesforce1

 

Matt and I delighted to get this opportunity to announce something we’ve been talking about among ourselves for quite some time: “Code Coverage: a podcast for Developers on the Salesforce1 Platform”.

 

The inspiration for this podcast is Jared Miller and Mike Gerholt’s excellent ‘Button Click Admin’ podcast.  Like the Button Click Admin our podcast will be in an interview format and feature one or more guests on topics near and dear to the guest’s heart.

We are aiming to release a new 30 minute episode every two weeks and we really, really want to get the voice of the “Average” developer out there so if you think you might have something interesting to say on a given topic then please get in touch!  (And please err on the side of ‘saying yes’! )

 

And with that I’d like to introduce our first episode, it’s a deep dive into 6800 Assembly language and Salesforce1 with Keir Bowden, CTO of Brightgen – a Force.com MVP and holder of all 7 Salesforce Certifications, including Advanced Developer and Certified Technical Architect and author of Visualforce Cookbook
