• At this point I would no longer call myself a Noob. More like pending journeyman?

      ‘A person who has completed the traditional live-in apprenticeship could be considered a journeyman, as could someone who is educated in their field and has passed a board-certified test.’ Yep that works.

      I sit my first certification exam shortly, once (if) I pass will that make this my journeyman years? I am quite nervous that I will fail and the embarrassment that that will produce. But then again, I am excited at the prospect of adding that certification logo to all sorts of things like my email signature and linkedIn profile. Yeah I’m a geek.

      I am writing this blog now as I’m am a little over the study and endless videos (I also have an upcoming uni exam). Seriously, how many Salesforce videos are there?! And also I’ve missed my last couple of blogs, so I really need to catch up. But I have been busy buried in code for the last couple of months and loving it.

      At the moment I’m almost done with a brand new org instance for an existing Salesforce customer. So much beautiful automation and some special visualforce pages. Although I do have to keep reminding myself to consider solution implementation using clicks before code (but WHHHYYYY?, code is beautiful!). Integration to other systems has become a lot less daunting due to this project, as I have now implemented integration to both XERO and eWAY. Its nice when things work. Although I can see a future hang up for me emerging already – how do I know when my work finished? I could keep updating and improving forever, the possibilities are endless.

      But for now I must get back to those training videos and exercise questions. Oh joy.
