2018 has been a very interesting year in the Salesforce ecosystem. And we will no doubt continue to feel the influence for a few more years, from some of the acquisitions made this year, the biggest of which was Mulesoft. So to close out 2018, let’s take a look at the year that was, and the best of 2018 here at cirrus.red.
A quick thank you
This year, cirrus.red has had over 22,000 views. So firstly, thanks to everyone who has visited. Some of you may have noticed the last couple of months has been a little quiet at cirrus.red, as I have been extremely busy with a huge project (moving an organisation to a new Lightning Salesforce org) and at the same time planning for move back to Australia. But 2019 will be bigger and better!
So as 2018 draws to a close, I thought it was interesting to look back and review 2018 and list out the top 4 posts from 2018 (based on # of views).
Best of 2018: Top 4 posts from cirrus.red
The #1 Post of 2018: Secrets of Spring ’18
Spring ’18 brought out a few hidden formulas, which turns out were extremely useful and had been asked for from the community for a number of years.
Now the documentation for Spring ’18 release has been updated, so these are not-so-much-hidden now, but it was the #1 post of 2018 on the site.
The #2 Post of 2018: GDPR in Spring ’18
Spring ’18 was also a big release if you were concerned about GDPR. And given the fever-pitched media frenzy that was happening in Feb/March, there was a lot of questions being asked.
Ultimately GDPR was an alignment of privacy standards across the EU-zone. And Salesforce, like many platform providers, included tools to help companies prepare for the changes which came into effect in May ’18.
The #3 Post of 2018: Passing the Platform App & Platform Developer I
Next up, was my guide to passing the Platform App Builder and the Platform Developer I exams. I had decided to study and sit both exams on the same day (not recommended), and shared some of the materials and learning from the two courses to help others who decided they may want to try and pass the exams.
The #4 Post of 2018: What’s the difference between Process Builder and Workflows
And finally, the 4th most viewed post from 2018 was a quick guide looking at the differences between Workflow and Process Builder.
So no doubt 2019 will be even bigger than this year, and I will try to do a 2019 predictions article shortly!
And finally, I hope you have had a great holidays so far, and have a happy new year!
