The Joys Of Apex
I’m currently writing a Salesforce.com Apex blog series on my TDD framework, under the wonderful title The Joys Of Apex — take a look!
Building this site
This website was built using Gatsby. I used to use NextJs, but after building the adventure travel blog, She & Jim using Gatsby, I ultimately decided to cut my personal site over as well. Next is a very powerful tool, but the documentation leaves something to be desired and the community at Gatsby has contributed so much to its progression - it’s also quite fast. The entire migration took only a few hours between frameworks, and the quality of life improvements in developer experience and iteration have made me quite happy with the results. I blogged about the cutover from Next to Gatsby, which was met favorably within the online community.
All of the styling is hand rolled, though I can also recommend the use of Tachyons js to anyone looking to build a site using a small, complete (13 kb!!), CSS framework.
I’m a fullstack developer working across a variety of different cloud platforms, frontends and backends including:
- Node.js + TypeScript
- React.js (Gatsby / Next.js)
- Angular (unfortunately)
- SQL + NoSQL
With a specialty in bringing enterprise-sized companies into Salesforce, sunsetting legacy systems, and performance tuning. I’m currently in the midst of a large migration project with a client, but if you’re interested in working together, feel free to contact me, I’d love to be a part of the future success of your business.
While you can occasionally observe me dropping * from *, using reflection to create anonymous types in
C#, changing the value of
undefined in JS, and perhaps enjoying one-time-too-many the mega-classic Wat video, in general I can be relied upon to write clean code.
