Take a glimpse inside the mind of a professional Salesforce developer as I code for you… live!
I’ve always wanted to start a Salesforce school / boot camp and this is the closest thing to it! I honestly haven’t been this excited about something in a long time!
Why this event is going to rock your socks off:
More details coming soon, stay tuned!
Why are you doing this?
People learn in different ways, and there are so many little things you’ll pick up on that I can’t show in a code snippet, post, or webinar!
How much does it cost to join this wonderful event?
The first 1,000,000 participants get to join FREE!
When will this event take place?
Time is TBD and will most likely happen soon within the next few weeks. I’m going to pick out a time that works for the majority of readers. Weekdays or weekends – let me know in the comments if you have a strong preference!
How long will this event last?
Likely 30 minutes to an hour depending on my coding speed and the number of questions that come in! I will not be rehearsing beforehand as I’d like this to be a simulation of a real coding scenario!
Will you be doing more of these in the future?
If I don’t sufficiently embarrass myself and a decent amount of people join, then yes! I’d love to start a series!
What will you be coding?
I have no idea but I’d like to start with something of intermediate complexity! I’d love to one day take prompts from viewers… LIVE!
Will the event be recorded?
I’ll do my best!
Update: here’s the event recording and recap!
This is a great! Please let me know how I can join your live session.
You can join the next one (time TBD) or watch the recording here!
This is a great step and i am sure it will inspire more and more people to code and make their lives better:)
I have missed the event because I had no idea about the event :(
Can you please share the Video Streaming if you have, It would be better for all of us who missed the evant
The event hasn’t happened yet!
Where do I sign up?!?! This is exciting!
Hey David… Waiting for your update on whereabouts of Live Coding event…
Great idea, David! Any closer in setting the event date and time?
I have recently moved in to saleforce from legacy systems, i would like to attend this live session.
Count me in.
Weekend would be a preferable slot for me and i think most people would ask for the same.
What an awesome idea! David you really know how to keep an audience with out of the box ideas and willingness to go without rehearsing. Great challenge with some pressure. I like it!
Hi David, i am very happy to know that you are back with a “bang” !! :D :D … I would prefer weekends so all of us are comfortable.. I am from India but anytime on weekends will work for me to participate in your live session.. I am waiting to get the schedule of the live session.. :D
Sign me up!
Sign me up please, any place to register?
Weekends work best for me! EST U.S.
That’s really great news David. You are awesome person. Can’t wait for this event! Please count me in!!
After long time I went this site for the my reference and I saw the update from David..I am speechless!!!! I am in shock completely I don’t know what to comment “David returns as Mummy Returns”…I am so excited and looking forward for registration updates..Thanks David
Weekends work better for I could attend! It’s an amazing idea this kind of coding live sessions.
Maybe hold one live. Like in person at Dreamforce 15. I will attend.
Great idea! We’ll see!
Thanks for this cool outcome David. I am very much eager to join this
Great Idea !!! Count me in. Weekends are fine with me.
Thanks for doing this.
Awesome David… I was missing you a lot…I did my 201 and 401 certifications last year and was looking for a job. One day I found out sfdc99 while googling on an apex trigger and from that day on, I started learning apex with joy. 4 months back I got a job as salesforce admin. So this is a HUGE news for me. You made my day….please count me in. Weekends are preferable. I am in US central time. You rock !!!!!
Congratulations Suma, what a great story!!!
If you ever want to tell it to the world, you can have your own post on the front page =) Just email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Totally up to you!
Can’t wait to see this! Weekends work best for me!
Welcome back David. Looking forward to your event! Can’t Wait.
Thanks for doing this
How are you ?
I want to start my career with Salesforce. I have a doubt, what are the roles in salesforce from scratch?
Maybe one day I’ll do an SFDC99 Live event on this =)
For now, check this out!
Thanks for your Reply.. i am using this site daily.. i will wait for the live event.
Yay, so excited for this!! David Liu is #1!!!
Great ! Am excited and would like to be one of the participant.Weekends USA ,EST would work for me.Infact any time over the weekend would work when people like you ( David) are ready to help us learn we can be that flexible.
Looking foreword to your event! This would be such a gift as I am currently beginning my journey into Salesforce and presently studying for DEV 401. Your blog has been a great inspiration and welcome your insights. I’m in the pacific time zone and weekdays after 6pm is ideal.
Awesome! Will be waiting for further details!
Great Idea!! Count me in. Anytime is fine with me.
Weekend anytime – else week days after office hours
OMG i missed it i had no idea about this is going to happen :(
It didn’t happen yet lol!
Your energy is amazing David! I started helping an NPO on implementing Salesforce(thanks that was a lead was taken from your website itself-Catchafire) for only few hours a day even though I am not working currently but you with your job and all striving so much to take SFDC99 to SFDC99 Live-Hatsoff !!
You’re doing the right thing, awesome!!!
This is AWESOME ! Weekends anytime would be wonderful.
Dvaid this is wonderful…please count me in..I’ll be absent on my work just to attend this…..j
You can count me in! I’ll be there no matter the time or date!
I even have a challenge in mind if you are up to it!
I gotta know now, what’s the challenge?! =)
Actually – maybe save it for a live prompt in a future event!
Nah I’m too curious, tell me!! I might use it!
I want to see how well you think on your toes!
Actually Here’s one example. A trigger/class that will create a task for a user every time an Opp is created and the Opp Line item is a certain type. Now, knowing that the Opp Line Items don’t exist until the Opp is created, can you find a way to rename the Line Item to something not system generated before the task is sent? I have a class that already creates the task, but it spits out the Line Item Id in the task, instead of giving it a real world name.
Oh, and no VF if possible.
This one is near and dear to me because it was my first ever real life case working in Salesforce!
Thanks for sending this over Gates! I’ll keep this one in my back pocket potentially for a future event!
(First event is going to be practiced for sure!!)
Can you please clarify one thing. According to my understanding, first of all an Opportunity is created, then through some trigger/manually an OpportunityLineItem is created, and thenafter a trigger on OpportunityLineItem creates a new task and populates the OpportunityLineItem’s Id in some field of the task object. At this time, we want to change the OpportunityLineItem name to some real worl name.
Please correct me if my understanding is not right.
This is the coolest thing ever!
Hi David. Count me in. Looking forward to attend live webinar. Preferably weekend.
Hi David. Looking forward to attend your live webinar. Preferably weekend.
This will be great David. I can’t wait to watch!
Awesome call, I was thinking to do something like this but it’s impossibile without this big audience! Good job man!
Thanks David for doing it. Looking forward to attend it and learn a lot for this session.
My preference would definitely be the weekend, easier to make sure I can attend.
Hi David, great idea. Count me in please. No preference for time ( Well, hopefully it’s not at 04:00am here ! )
Good Idea, To Start Introducing the SFDC99 live stream event!
Please tell How to register
More details on this to come =)
Thanks for the Information.
Great. Glad to have you back. Can you show us some real world code you worked on? Also what tools you actually use.
I’m going to do exactly these things!!!
Thanks David, I am hoping for weekday but anytime for SFDC99! Hoping you can do some basic stuff in addition to the intermediate to cater to the newbies!
Great Idea!! Count me in. Anytime is fine with me.
Great idea. I would prefer a weekday during normal work hours personally.
Thank you so much David for your initative. I am based out india Please let us know about the live session schedule
I’m so excited David! You are such an amazing inspiration ….
You never seem to amaze by the work you do!!! 1 more feather for sfdc99.
I am in…no time constraints.. :)
OMG I’m so excited!!! Can’t wait. I’ll try to make it work whenever it is but probably weekdays during workday works best. I’m learning so it’s a part of my job :)
Lucky you to have a company sponsor your learning like this! =)
Do I need to register to for this event inorder to attend the webniar.If yes where can I register?
More details here to come – but there will likely be some minor registration process so you can have a username and participate in the chat!
Thats really a wonderful idea. Thanks David for your innvative idea and effort. Weekeneds will be comfortable for me.
I will fit work my schedule to fit whatever time you choose. Taping would be an excellent thing (we have continuous storms here, and loose power regularly…)
Count me in! And welcome back!
I look forward to this David. Presumably it will be outside my waking hours (i’m also in Sydney), but hopefully there will be a recording available for those of us who can’t make the live webinar :)
Ammmmmmmmmmmmmazing, would love to join this session…. Waiting for it anxiously :)
Weekdays, noon or 1:00 central time work great!
Here’s another vote for weekdays, 12 – 1 central.
I’m so excited David! You are such an amazing inspiration …. thank you for what you do.
It’s good to see you back……anytime you are on works for me!
That’s a mammoth initiative.I have been following your posts when you first created a video on how to write the first trigger and after that, visiting your website is like checking today’s weather..Almost everyday need to visit it..
Please let us know when its gonna be live and we’ll jump onto the bridge.
Please consider us Indians as well David, I can stay awake till 2.30 AM. :)
I love this. Count me in. Weekdays or weekends are fine with me.
Great to see you back! I agree with Anitha whatever time you choose people will attend it. Everybody loves your work and contribution so much.
Thank you for your efforts and Time.
Wow! David this is a great idea and will benefit so many people! The only major issue here is the timings, there is no possible way to cater for everyone’s timing needs because of the different time zones around the world. Weekends will be most peoples preferences including mine due to work commitment. Like what has already been said here, a recording will be one of the options to reach a wider audience. As for me, any time, any day, I will make time for it. If you need help in anyway, shape or form, please let me know in any capacity I can be of help, I am more than happy to be your first volunteer!
Thanks Jeremiah!! =)
I am looking to get into salesforce, currently studying for 201. I have been following you for a while (not in a salkerish way) and would love to see you in action. I work on weekdays and am based in the UK so weekends would be better. BTW reading success stories on this site has inspired me, so thank you. I am still at the beginning of my journey – who know where this will take me.
Glad this site could help inspire you – maybe one day your story will inspire others too!
Sanjay, please feel free to reach out to me if you need coaching on getting your first cert!
It can feel daunting to get started, but I know you can do it! Finding this site is definitely an amazing first step!
That would be great. I would love to start a dialogue with you via email of that is OK with you.
My email is:- 21july81@Gmail.com
This is great, David! Best morning news. Can’t wait to spend ideally weekends to code with you! :) Thank you.
David, I prefer to have week end sessions. Anytime during the weekend should be fine.
Woww… David this is amazing opportunity so far, talking to you,learning from you.. Well looking forward to eagerly..
Wow!! Really so nice of u David!! :) weekends are more comfortable thans weekdays! Eagerly waiting to learn more and more from u :D
ITs great to hear that SFDC99 LIVE by David “My Hero”. So surely I would never miss such a great opportunity to have talk and understand the Apex concept deeply. Thanks once again for your efforts and Time.
SFDC99 Live… that’s a great name for this type of thing! Thank YOU and see you there Ashwin!
It’s really such a good news for me today….You made my day david…thank you…and It will be comfortable when the classes will be on weekend..
But one thing is sure, weekend or weekdays & day time or night time, if you are taking the classes i ‘ll be attending.
Thanks david for your efforts :)
And you made my day with this comment! Thank you Anitha!
Really a great idea. I would be eagerly waiting for the Live Session.
That’s great news. I know david you come back with something interesting idea for all Salesforce lovers like me. According to me it’s nice if it will schedule on weekend Saturday on evening time or your morning time. Welcome back David Happy to see you again. :)
Excellent idea – I am going to buy a strongest espresso beans ever :). I believe a poll regarding the best time will be very useful, otherwise it can be extremely difficult.
What a great idea Sergey!! I’ll set one up!
Great initiative david. I am based out of india and i feel weekends would be great for the live sessions.Pls let us know about the live session schedule and also have a provision for recording the session so that the folks who miss out for any reason have the feasibility to witness it later. Thanks again….
Good call – crossing my fingers there are no technical difficulties and we can have a recording!
This is a great idea. Would like to be a part of the streaming. I am based out of India so a time during our evenings would work (That would mostly be the first half of the day in US). Weekdays/Weekends is fine.
Great to see David, I am based in Sydney Australia so about 7pm here would be fantastic…. :) That being said I presume with 1,000,000 viewers you’ll be doing well to please anyone. Thanks
