My goal here is simple:
I want to help others by showing how I use a free Salesforce developer account for my own personal gain. I’ve been thinking for awhile now that if I can’t be happy with a solution in my own life then why should I expect a client to pay for the same thing?
I want to look at both desktop and mobile capabilities, and strive to find the best way to do something. There won’t be advanced code, but there will be some code, and I’ll try to explain it as I go along.
There will be growing pains, there will be people much smarter than me who have even better ideas, but I want to work through solutions and hopefully a few other people who are stumped by the same kind of thing come across this blog and can help their own customers. Heck, I’ll probably even screw up a few times and have the humiliating task of explaining how I’m unwinding my last month’s blog posts because they were wrong.
I’ll forewarn readers that I’ll also probably rant on a few things over time, and really harp on some ideas that I think people aren’t taking advantage of as much as they should. I’m an active participator on Success.salesforce.com and I see certain cases (Cross-Filters!) where person after person gives the wrong advice, over and over again. I hope that by having another site out there with correct and more detailed advice, people can find the information they are looking for quicker, and be able to provide solutions to their customers faster, all in the cloud.
