I wanted to change the first day of my week to Monday, and to see my weekends on the right-side of the 7-day view. I’ve started doing this on my Google and Outlook calendars, so why not be consistent?
I recently discovered a blog so chock-full of Apex and Visualforce goodies that I had to mention it. Sam Arjmandi is a CRM System Analyst/Designer at Open Text in Toronto, and he writes incredible posts sharing some innovative Apex, Visualforce, and AJAX code ideas. He has posts on proper test coverage for Apex (always a difficult topic, and one that salesforce.com has not addressed adequately in its documentation–hint, hint), on actionStatus tags, extensions, controllers, and more. Check out this blog and subscribe to its feed; anyone even remotely interested in developing on the Force.com platform will find it a huge resource. Thanks, Sam!
Jon Mountjoy has written another super post over at developer.force.com. This one is titled An Introduction to Apex. It goes through some of the basics of the language and provides some examples. Everyone should read this; beginners will get a better orientation than otherwise available, and experienced Apex developers will probably also learn a thing or two.
