August 29, 2014 | Craig Isakson: Excited to Speak at Dreamforce 2014
Every year there are a few Sundoggers that make their way to San Francisco to attend Salesforce’s annual conference, Dreamforce. This year will mark my second year attending the conference. This will also give me another opportunity to share some of my knowledge I have learned on the platform with others by speaking in the Developer Zone.
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.
August 29, 2014 | Craig Isakson: iOS JSON Tools Part II
If you remember back to the initial blog post on JSON tools for iOS, I had mentioned using Jastor for parsing data in iOS. Well, Jastor is no longer supported. However, this does not mean that you have to do it all manually. There is a new tool on the block and the new tool is JSONModel.

July 29, 2014 | Craig Isakson: Working With Dynamic Markers in Google Maps JS API
Google Maps has been around for quite a while. As such, when I came across the need to add dynamic markers to a map I did some searching. My search didn’t really yield what was looking for. There were a couple of similar situations I had found but nothing that really worked well.
July 29, 2014 | Craig Isakson: Starting a PushTopic for the Streaming API in Salesforce
If you have ever used the Streaming API in Salesforce you know that you need to create a PushTopic for users to subscribe to for streaming to work. Not a big deal right? It’s just an object and the topics are just records in the object.

June 13, 2014 | Craig Isakson: The Two Sites that Every Android and iOS Developer Should Have Bookmarked
Are you into both Android and iOS Development? Maybe just one or the other? If so, I have a “Pro Tip”. Sometimes it is hard to know what is already out there in forms of Libraries for certain things you do everyday in Android or iOS. Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a centralized place for each platform to go to to find out what is available and what you should use in your own project?
June 13, 2014 | Craig Isakson: Google and Apple Working on Adding Health and Fitness
Hot off the heals of the announcement of Apple’s Healthkit we have just received word that Google will also be joining the Health and Fitness trend with Google Fit. A recent Forbes article shows that Goole is planning to unveil this program in a couple of weeks at this year’s Google I/O.
June 13, 2014 | Craig Isakson: Client-Side JSON to CSV Converter
Working in the world of the web, we are often given data from API’s in JSON format. This is great for most programming situations because it is lightweight and easy to deal with. There are times when we do get that data in JSON format but it needs to be in something more consumable by either other applications or by humans. In those cases, you might need to convert said JSON to CSV.

It was about a year ago when Google announced that they were working on Android Studio as the IDE to replace ADT. Android Studio uses IntelliJ at its core and replaces the use of ANT for building projects to using Gradle.
