Integrations allow businesses to potentially save a lot of money by reducing duplicate data entry, reducing licensing costs, and allowing systems to interact end to end.
APIs come in many different styles and types. Before running into a style we need to understand the different options and the trade offs that we are making.
I was recently working on a serverless api that uses serverless offline, express.js and mongodb.
We started getting emails from MongoDB Atlas telling us that we ran out of connections.
There are quite a few different reasons to consider using serverless instead of looking at building a monolith or building services in containers.
The Serverless Framework allows us to abstract away quite a bit of the complexity from setting up lambda functions and the necessary events to execute them, especially through the API gateway.
In this blog post we look at how to set up a simple project to use the serverless framework.
My favourite library for reading, writing, and manipulating Excel files in Node.JS is ExcelJS. In this tutorial, we’ll look at how to install the library and how to dynamically read an Excel file.
It is a distributed architecture that allows us to partition workloads between the providers of the service and service requestors. The service provider is called a server, and the service consumer is called a client. A server listens for requests and services them as clients request them.

Visualforce is still useful though, here are some…
Logging is very important to developers as it helps us more efficiently debug a system in production and the steps that led to the occurrence of the bug.
In this post, we look at ways to make logging better.
Most governor limit errors are a result of poorly understanding how Salesforce works, so they can be prevented by designing a better architecture and by taking advantage of the platform. For example, too many SOQL queries can be avoided by writing bulk-friendly code or using caching.
Batch Apex has some incredible advantages over regular apex. The execution time of batch apex can be much longer and a lot more records can be processed. Scheduling Batch Apex has even more benefits than batch apex: it can do large jobs regularly.
After reading this article, you will understand how to export data from a database or other system using a csv library in Node.js.
CSV stands for common separated values file which means that data can be stored in a tabular format with commas separating each value.
A pivot report is a matrix-based report that has subtotals across both rows and columns and allows us to summarize a much larger dataset.
The Serverless Framework is a free open source framework that allows us to easily build applications on cloud providers like AWS using serverless computing.
As you may remember, it needs to be installed globally which means we need to do the update globally and we’ll need to potentially update all of our projects for any breaking changes.
From time to time, as a NetSuite Administrator or Developer you will come into situations where someone has clicked “Store Form With Record” and you need to change all of the records to potentially use a new form.
In this post, you’ll learn how to actually point records to use the new form.
If you are like me, you’ve had a requirement to customize the list of values in the Industry field which appears on Leads, Prospects, and Customers.
