Episode 30 — Dan Appleman on Salesforce Development Over The Years, Pluralsight and JavaScript with Lightning

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
  • JavaScript, it’s use in Lightning, and what it means for developers
  • 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
