What I learned this week about: Pardot Form Handlers

A better title: What I learned last year about Form Handlers and am now getting around to posting. Holidays, amirite? I could probably write a whole series on Pardot Forms and Form Handlers, but it’s also probably been done already. Plus there is documentation available. Or you could pop over to Jenna Molby’s blog forContinue reading “What I learned this week about: Pardot Form Handlers”

What I learned this week about: Pardot Responsive Layouts

I built my first responsive email template in 2014 when I was just coming into the MOPs/Salesforce Admin portion of our programming and realized that my company’s marketing emails were NOT responsive. Me being me, I ended up sitting through a free webinar put on by Litmus to gain the basic understanding of how responsiveContinue reading “What I learned this week about: Pardot Responsive Layouts”

What I learned this week: Providers & Self-Signed Certificates

I would say that about once a month I have a client or coworker sending me an email that looks like this and asking “what do I do?” I remember getting my first one of these and panicking, and the documentation available for admins with little knowledge of single sign-on is poor. I am prettyContinue reading “What I learned this week: Providers & Self-Signed Certificates”

What I learned this week: Data Skew

Disclaimer: In the spirit of full transparency, I learned about data skew a little while ago. But the whole point is “what I learned this week.” In some cases, “this week,” just refers to this week in time…like…last week, last month, whatever. My first brush with NPSP was as a consultant. I remember very clearlyContinue reading “What I learned this week: Data Skew”

What I learned: TDX19

We’re just going to leave the elephant in the room right where it is, so…make peace with that. I had the great pleasure to attend TrailheaDX last week, Salesforce’s smaller developer conference, in San Francisco. It was my first TDX, but I certainly hope it won’t be my last. For those who have never been,Continue reading “What I learned: TDX19”

Live from Dreamforce

It’s Wednesday – halfway through Dreamforce, and I’m returning from a day and evening of volunteering, playing Dungeons and Dragons, and having dinner with some of my absolute favorite people. I look back on my first Dreamforce, and I look at where I am today, and I still can’t believe it. How is this myContinue reading “Live from Dreamforce”

Online Proctoring: My Horror Story

I enjoy my creature comforts. I like working from my couch some days, with blankets all bundled around me, feet propped up, and a cup of coffee nearby. Most importantly I like all of those thingsĀ in my own house. If offered an opportunity to get coffee at a fancy coffeeshop or make myself a cupContinue reading “Online Proctoring: My Horror Story”

DnDF17 Episode 2: Everything must be dwarf

Previously on DnDF17… The members of Bacon Ipsum stared in growing horror at the flames consuming Moscone. Datatello’s concern heightened with each area he recognized, but his eyes focused on his own neighborhood, wondering if his sister, Erikuhl, was safe. Bakaryu had to use all of her mental discipline to stay put, seeing the glowContinue reading “DnDF17 Episode 2: Everything must be dwarf”

DnDF17: The adventure so far

Last week, on DnDF17 (some artistic liberties have been taken) The weary members of Bacon Ipsum wound through the streets of Moscone. They were silent, all of them thinking only of the destination and what would await them there – the best coffee in Forcelandia and payment for their efforts defeating what may or mayContinue reading “DnDF17: The adventure so far”

It’s that time again!

Last year I did a thingĀ to help raise money for ExtraLife, and I introduced the world to Brunhilda Battlehammer, AKA Trailblazer, AKA my dwarf ranger character for DnDF16. I have news for you all… SHE IS BACK WITH A VENGEANCE! And by vengeance, I simply mean that I will be reprising this role for DnDF17!Continue reading “It’s that time again!”
