We are software engineers that focus on developing custom software solutions for the Salesforce.com Platform. We started this podcast to share our conversations around software development, technology, and the Salesforce.com Platform. Our goal is to keep developers and non-developers informed with our own unique brand of casual, honest, and entertaining commentary.

The Whole Megillah
In this episode, we discuss our reactions to Marc Benioff's Dreamforce '23 Main Keynote.
Salesforce+ Dreamforce Main KeynoteI build products on Salesforce, and yes Marc Benioff, I am a developer and in your words I am a hardliner.
You can honestly bill for the time spent listening to this podcast as “working”, and still have fun
I mean, it’s absolutely the best: you get to learn some 100% informative stuff about Salesforce, AND some tangentially related yet curious tech stuff, AND some totally unrelated fun stuff. And to top it all off, it’s entertaining as hell and absolutely free of marketing BS or any other kind of pandering. I wish I could model my blog after this awesomeness.
From Russia with love,
P.S. I suggest you guys shouldn’t consider buying SF stock. Even past the ridiculous P/E ratio, since your job is also dependent on SF-that’s too much eggs for one basket.
No BS Salesforce Commentary
I’ve listened to this podcast for almost three years now. Every time I turn it on I feel kindred spirits in Jeremy and John as they openly discuss the positives and negatives of releases, feature updates and news around Salesforce. They hold no punches in their assessments, which is so refreshing. At last I’ve found a podcast that isn’t corrupted by sales. I am not a developer (in the traditional sense of the word), but I love listening to the dev angle because it makes me aware of an important element I might otherwise ignore. Excellent dialogue and commentary. Keep it up, you guys. Beer talk adds levity I enjoy, don’t ever lose it.
Why are those two talking about the new sound system and Disneyland trip (for like 12 mins)?
Small talks are good but diving into the crux fairly quickly is important. This is the first (and perhaps the only time) I’ve listened to them..
