So I have an entire post written and ready to post on my upcoming Wine App but I realized that Dev Org be damned, I want to try and explain how I think about creating objects and managing object relationships. It can be intimidating to wrap your head around them at first and I want to do my best to explain how I figure out if something should be a different object or not when building out a custom solution.
If you didn’t read my first post about Cross Filters, read my first post about Cross Filters.
If it still isn’t clear after you’ve read it, I think these are really important to understand, and I think there are too many people out there giving bad advice on solving problems when something like this could be used instead.
For example, what if you need to know with of the F-14s on the USS Enterprise weren’t involved in that dogfight with Maverick and Iceman shooting down those 4 MiGs? You could do a custom report, but a Cross-Filter is easier. Don’t forget to exclude Hollywood’s plane, it was shot down.
You know what I hate about restaurant aggregator sites? This:
Seriously. Out of all those places, probably 5-10 are a place I would take my wife. This is really the best they can do?
In the previous post I talked about how my wife had mentioned that maybe I could build her an app to help her manage our new baby. When I tell this story in 10 years time I’m sure I’ll be telling it slightly differently and more like this:
My Wife: Take me to bed or lose me forever
Me: I’ll build you an app instead!
