I work in an SalesForce ISV environment where we develop a multiple products for the UK public sector market. Our products are often quite complex, and often contain multiple SalesForce objects. This become challenging when our customers want to migrate information from legacy systems, into our products on the SalesForce platform.
I like Linux. I love how easy it is to install extra tools on Linux, such as if I have a fresh Ubuntu server and I want to install Git all I have to do is enter the following commands into a terminal window
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install git
It’s that simple. Any Environment Variable or dependencies are created, and installed, as part of the process. Compare that to the process on Windows, which is a complete nightmare.
Often referred to as the missing SalesForce function, adding business days to a date can be a complex operation. Many of us assume that as SalesForce has built in functionality to set SLA’s against cases and products – yet struggles to calculate adding business days to a specific date.
So I needed to create something that would allow you to add business days to a date; this method would take into account both weekends, and company holidays.
So you want an everyday car with an automatic gearbox, but you don’t want the drone or poor fuel economy of a CVT. One of your options is a Dual-clutch transmission.
What is a dual-clutch transmission?
Sometimes called a twin or double clutch transmission, a dual-clutch transmission is a type of automatic transmission that has two separate clutches, one for odd gears, and the other for even gears. The two clutches work together as one transmission, seamlessly switching between the individual gears automatically, without interrupting torque distribution. This is achieved by applying the torque to one clutch whilst disconnecting from the other clutch. As even and odd gears are on the different clutches the dual clutch transmission can have the next sequential gear preselected, so when the next shift needs to happen the torque can be applied to the opposite clutch and the next sequential gear.
SSL stands for secure sockets layer and is a form of security for sites that traditionally handle sensitive information. It creates a secure connection between a visitor’s web browser and the server that is serving the web page.
Information submitted on Internet forms often passes through more than one computer before reaching its destination, and the more stops it has to make, the higher the chance that a third-party could get access. An SSL certificate inserts random characters into the original information, rendering it incomprehensible to anyone without the proper encryption key. If the information does somehow wind up in the wrong hands, it will be unreadable and therefore useless.
As the title to this post suggests I have built an easier way to quickly insert all of the UK’s bank holidays.
To add the UK Public Holidays to your company’s holiday calendar you just need to copy the code below into the Execute Anonymous window in the developer console.
The Open Vulnerability Assessment System (OpenVAS) is a framework of several services and tools offering a comprehensive and powerful vulnerability scanning and vulnerability management solution. The actual security scanner is accompanied by a daily updated feed of Network Vulnerability Tests (NVTs), over 35,000 in total (as of April 2014).
