Nerdforce #18 – Mister Jeans and his Amazing #SFIndiaTour

This week we talk to returning Guest Accomplice Zachary Jeans @ZacharyJeans about his endeavor to circumnavigate the world making friends and loving life.  He recants how he put together a 14 city tour in India that sandwiched between a few stops in Europe.  We get a bit name-droppy as a slew of colleagues are brought up in conversation including Michael Farrington, Chris Duarte, Abhilasha Singh, Vinay Chaturvedi, Jocelyn Fennewald, Bhavana Singh, Alex Sutherland, Melinda Smith, Amy Oplinger, Eric Dreshfield, Weird Al and Billy Joel.  Special “May the Fourth Be with You” bonus, you get to hear our critical review of the Force Awakens.

Quick apology to Bhavana for confusing you with Abhilasha.  Looking forward to meeting you at DF16.

Nerdforce #17.0 – Blazin the Nerd Trail: Getting Started with Apex Triggers

This week we have something unique from Productions.  We invited the Architect himself, Mr. Adam Olshansky.  We had a fantastic conversation about all the Nerdtasticly Amazing things on this globe.  We also Blazed another Nerd Trail as Adam walked us through Getting Started with Apex Triggers. This is where it gets odd.  Some gremlin stole away into my recording software and neatly removed any evidence that I was actually there.  It sounded like Adam and Nana were having a good chat but intermittently stopping in thoughtful reflection throughout the discussion.  I’m afraid the nerd talk had to go, but I was able to rescue the Blazed Nerd Trail.  We are now all lucky enough to walk through a fantastic Trail that is an excellent first step into the Salesforce Dev World.  O…one last thing, Nana and Adam turn into androids half way through the recording.  Anyway, Enjoy the show.
