      Salesforce Spring 16 Release Rapid Reaction

      I continue to enjoy consuming the Salesforce release notes via the web / HTML version. I still have not yet even downloaded the PDF. While I don’t know exactly how many pages this release is I can say that once again we have a release that is jam packed with Lightning Experience features. I personally tried to stay away from Lightning specific features and geared my reaction toward more general platform enhancements.

      Devs - Create a Lightning Component for Drag-and-Drop Profile Pictures

      Salesforce Lightning Design System Node Demo

      Last weekend I started playing around with the new Lightning Design System and before I knew it, I had an entire app written!! It was as simple as using Bootstrap!

      I have a confession to make... I suck at front-end design. I typically stumble over spans and divs and inject all sorts of silly stuff into the DOM when it shouldn't be there. In turn, my Visualforce pages also look terrible.

We are going to user Bootstrap and the Twitter typeahead component.

      The idea behind this implementation is that the user will type a search on the input field and the typeahead shows a list of the first 20 items for the given object and search string.
