A little about me...
As you know my name is David. I am a certified Salesforce developer by day and a casual Wordpress Developer by night.
I undertook my Bachelor of Information of Technology majoring in Multimedia Technology at DEAKIN University and honestly loved every minute of it. I had exposure to many streams of IT and whilst I had not decided exactly what I wanted to do during the course I knew I loved IT and wanted to pursue a successful career in this field. I didn't find my passion within IT until I landed my grad role when I graduated and I have never looked back since...
I'll start with my main focus; Salesforce. I began developing on the Force.com platform straight out of University April 2013 at a consulting firm known as Clouding Around. I hit the ground running with a dev position and never looked back. Having had a taste of different languages and different platforms I instantly fell in love with the CRM. The power, out of the box functionality, architecture and libraries available to developers in Apex and Visualforce are unrivaled. I worked at Clouding Around for just under two years before moving to undertake Salesforce developer at Australian Unity in December 2014.
Shortly after beggining here I gained my certification (Salesforce Developer DEV401) and look ahead to a very exciting future as a Salesforce Developer.
I have experience in:
- Service/Sales Cloud configuration and complete end to end set up
- Apex and Visualforce
- SOAP API
- Apex Triggers
- Salesforce Sites
- Web Services
More as a hobby than anything else I have also been working in Wordpress for more than 5 years (as of May 2015). It started out as a curiosity in University and snowballed into a little business I ran throughout my University life which delivered quality websites to small businesses. I guess I initially just wanted to earn a few bucks whilst studying but it turned into a very reputable portfolio of work I was able to produce for my initial job applications out of University; something that made me stand out from other grads and I am very glad I had that under my sleeve.
While I do not actively promote the business anymore I have never closed the doors simply because I get an itch to do some plain old web dev from time to time. I still do the odd website in my spare time and I do still love working with the CMS system (this website is also a wordpress site).
