There are tons of programming blogs out there, but I started this one because

A) I needed a place to vent. Apex drives me crazy sometimes.
B) I haven’t seen many other blogs working with the same mix of technologies I work with.
C) I’d like to think maybe I can help some people who are doing the same stuff I am.

So there ya go. I am just going to be posting what I find, and what works for me. Take everything I write with a grain of salt. As rage-ful as I might seem in my posts, I really do enjoy my job, and I do like getting to work on so many fun projects, but some parts about it, will always be… challenging ;)

If you enjoy my work, or I’ve been helpful and you want to show your thanks, I keep an Amazon wishlist at http://amzn.com/w/3I0OHNN36MEC2 I’m always happy to get anything :) Or you can donate to me on Paypal

I was flying home for San Francisco last week (April, 2011) and was browsing the salesforce.com message boards (i.e., I have no life). There are still a ton of people asking basic questions like, “how do I test a trigger” or “how do I set a default value in my Visualforce page” or “why is this validation rule doing this ….”. Some of these questions have already been answered but they are scattered around a number of community blogs. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a centralized location to teach people salesforce.com? [insert magic light bulb ding sound]

So during my red-eye-flight-stupor, I decided to start this blog to help people learn saleforce.com. I’m inviting everyone in the salesforce.com community to contribute. If you have a workflow tip, some sample Apex code or an explanation on territority management that you’d like to share, I’ll add you as a contributor and you can post it. Perhaps you saw a great recipe on the Force.com Cookbook site. Post a link to it. You found a great Ruby book on Amazon.com. Post a link to it. A cool demo on YouTube. Post a link to it. Get the idea?

Can you post content that already exist on your blog? Not a problem as long as the goal is to educate the salesforce.com masses. Feel free to cross-post away! The more the merrier. I’ve put together a few simple guidelines to help us focus and provide value.

If you would like to contribute, simply send me an email at jeff[at]jeffdouglas(dot)com with your wordpress.com email address and I’ll add you. If you don’t already have a wordpress.com account you must create one first.

My hope is that people will be interested in this site and not only read it but provide content. We’ll see. Let the crowdsourcing learning experiment begin! - Jeff Douglas.
