September 30, 2014 | Craig Isakson: Another Dreamforce Giveaway?!

Yes, today I am all about the Dreamforce giveaways.  This post is no exception!  Have you been wondering about what the Streaming API is?  How about how to use the Streaming API?  Maybe you know what it is and how to use it but have been curious on how to implement realtime tracking in Visualforce pages via the Streaming API?  If you answered yes to either of these questions, look no further!!

September 25, 2014 | Craig Isakson: Notifications with the Salesforce iOS SDK in iOS 8

Anytime there is an OS update for mobile devices, no matter the platform, I always like to pull up apps I have written before or are currently working on to check to see if there are any hiccups.  iOS 8 was no different.  I noticed that my notifications were not working with one of my apps that is built off of the Salesforce iOS SDK.

August 29, 2014 | Craig Isakson: Creating Public RESTful Services in Salesforce

In the course of working with a Salesforce and other connected systems, you are bound to run across a time when you need to create a public web service in Salesforce to be consumed by an outside system.  To me this seems fairly common.  Recently when I was going to try to create such a service, I was having troubles trying to find out where this was documented and was wondering if it was actually possible.

August 29, 2014 | Craig Isakson: Calling RESTful Services on Salesforce Through the Native iOS SDK

Salesforce does a lot of awesome things that help a developer work on getting stuff done rather than setting stuff up.  It is one of the reasons why I like the platform.  A lot of the repetitive work is taken care of automatically.  One such area is by using the Salesforce iOS and Android SDK’s.  They make it a matter of using node.js and running a command in the terminal to get a boilerplate app complete that allows you to connect to Salesforce and start building what needs to get done.
