Thank you Jan Vandevelde for the kind shout-out on your site!
Full story here: My road to learning Apex as a Salesforce Administrator
“Why haven’t I ever learnt to program?” – “Wouldn’t it be nice if I could do this myself? … Sometimes I really envy those who know how to program!”
Oh man I felt the exact same way too!!
“That’s when I stumbled upon SFDC99.com… This site was exactly what I was looking for! It felt like it was created especially for me!”
I will forward this compliment out to my SEO folks! =)
“Really David (if you read this), THANK YOU, you’re an inspiration to us all! And keep posting those nice tutorials please!”
*sniff* My pleasure buddy – itching to write more tutorials after Dreamforce!
“Now that I’ve learnt some basics and have had the opportunity to create some simple triggers on our org I see lots of benefits in knowing a little apex as an admin:
– Faster development
– Easier to explain what you want to external development teams
– Troubleshoot problems in functionality yourself
– Less expenses
– More self-control
– More self-confidence
– Gain more in-depth comprehension of all the capabilities and limits of the Force.com platform
…and A NEW HOBBY ;-)”
This is my favorite part about your story… more self-confidence and a new hobby!!!
Stories like yours are the reason why I spend my free time on this site instead of playing my PS4!
Best of luck in your new venture Jan and let us know how you do!
