TrailheaDX

I just got back (i.e. took a 5 minute bus ride home) from the first ever Salesforce developer conference, TrailheaDX! Just wanted to share my thoughts and help anyone who missed it feel like they were part of the experience as well! I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first signed up for the […]

Salesforce Record Access

Overview First of all, just wanted to clarify I’m not going to discuss how Salesforce handles security on their end, but rather how you as an admin can configure it in your org.  I would again like to remind you that I highly recommend nailing down the fundamentals of being a Salesforce administrator first regardless […]

Background This is a question I get quite a bit from my family and friends alike when I tell them I’m a Salesforce Software Engineer.  While it would probably be shorter to write a post about what Salesforce ISN’T, I’m going to do my best to summarize anyway.  If you have a little bit of […]

Who is Adam Olshansky?

Background That’s a good question, and I’m trying to figure that out myself  I also wanted to spend some time talking about what my vision for this blog is, why I started it, and what some my goals are (if you don’t have a lot of time, plan to come back later, or just aren’t interested😦, […]
