Creating A HTTP Callout Test

By | Blog | No Comments
I recently stumbled across a blog that was posted a few months ago by our Japanese office that I found very interesting. The post was by one of our Engineers named Daichi Mizoguchi. In that post he walked people through how to setup a Visualforce page and some Apex code to perform an HTTP request to a Weather service’s API. I know connecting to APIs is something that people commonly struggle with here in the US as well, so I took this blog post’s inspiration from the work he did and rebuilt all of the code to work with a weather service in the US for us to test and interact with. So a big thanks and shout out goes out to Daichi Mizoguchi for thinking of this. Read More

Salesforce developed an open source generic framework called Aura. Aura, in conjunction with the Force namespace, has created many of the new technologies that Salesforce has released under the umbrella of Lightning.

Hello! Did you get a chance to see the Apple Watch yet? I bought a Smart Watch3 last year and have been playing with it for a while. Before, it was hard for me to catch the alert from my smartphone when I had it in my pocket. Now with the direct vibration to my wrist, I don’t miss the notifications anymore. And also, I don’t have to go through the fuss of taking out the phone from my pocket every time I need to check something. I am sure that the smart watch has various usage possibilities. Read More
