Call your CRM Platform! Using an ASP.NET Web API to Link Twilio and Salesforce.com

April 17, 2014

1

I love mashups. It’s fun to combine technologies in unexpected ways. So when Wade Wegner of Salesforce asked me to participate in a webinar about the new Salesforce Toolkit for .NET, I decided to think of something unique to demonstrate. So, I showed off how to link Twilio – which in an API-driven service for […]

Co-Presenting a Webinar Next Week on Force.com and .NET

April 10, 2014

Salesforce.com is a juggernaut in the software-as-a-service space and continues to sign up a diverse pool of global customers. While Salesforce relies on its own language (Apex) for coding extensions that run within the platform, developers can use any programming framework to integrate with Salesforce.com from external apps. That said, .NET is one of the […]

Using the New Salesforce Toolkit for .NET

January 16, 2014

Wade Wegner, a friend of the blog and an evangelist for Salesforce.com, just built a new .NET Toolkit for Salesforce developers. This Toolkit is open source and available on GitHub. Basically, it makes it much simpler to securely interact with the Salesforce.com REST API from .NET code. It takes care of “just working” on multiple […]

I’ve been asked to write a few more articles for the DeveloperForce site (the developer-centric destination for Salesforce.com developers) and the first one is now online. This article, entitled “Working with Custom SOAP and REST Services in .NET Applications” takes a look at how to construct custom SOAP and REST services in Force.com, and then […]

Where the heck do I host my … cloud database?

October 14, 2013

So far, I’ve looked at options for hosting .NET and Node.js applications in the cloud. But what about the  services that web applications rely on? It’s unlikely that your cloud application will use many on-premises services, so you’ll need things like databases nearby. There are a LOT of relational and NoSQL cloud databases out there. […]

Using the Windows Azure Service Bus REST API to Send to Topic from Salesforce.com

September 18, 2013

In the past, I’ve written and talked about integrating the Windows Azure Service Bus with non-Microsoft platforms like Salesforce.com. I enjoy showing how easy it is to use the Service Bus Relay to connect on-premises services with Salesforce.com. On multiple occasions, I’ve been asked how to do this with Service Bus brokered messaging options (i.e. […]

Last week I had the pleasure of visiting New Orleans to present at TechEd North America. My session, Patterns of Cloud Integration, was recorded and is now available on Channel9 for everyone to view. I made the bold (or “reckless”, depending on your perspective) decision to show off as many technology demos as possible so […]

Calling Salesforce.com REST and SOAP Endpoints from .NET Code

May 2, 2013

1

A couple months back, the folks at Salesforce.com reached out to me and asked if I’d be interested in helping them beef up their .NET-oriented content. Given that I barely say “no” to anything – and this sounded fun – I took them up on the offer. I ended up contributing three articles that covered: […]

This course, Patterns of Cloud Integration,  takes you through how application and data integration differ when adding cloud endpoints.
