Building a Chatter Compliance App Using Apex and ConnectApi


Please join us for the next Bay Area Salesforce Developer User Group event on Wednesday, March 19th,  at our 123 Mission St. location! David Schach will be giving a talk on building a Chatter compliance app using Apex and the ConnectApi. Details below!

Building a Chatter Compliance App Using Apex and ConnectApi

There are many Chatter compliance apps on the AppExchange, and most do the same things. As the technical lead for the Bloomberg Chatter compliance app (tentatively titled Bloomberg Vault for Chatter) I have learned a lot about how Chatter - and much of the platform - function, beyond what I have even experienced building large-scale enterprise apps and ISV apps. I will share the project requirements and design decisions made to satisfy those, and the tools (some undocumented) we chose. I will include a brief overview of the ConnectAPI (Chatter in Apex) and will show how it can access Chatter features beyond what is available in "regular" Apex. I will show my usual trigger templates and design patterns (including handlers and general flow-control), which will hopefully be of interest to beginners and expert users alike. And I will share how the use of scheduled Apex, batch Apex, and other constructs can keep a process going at regular intervals, removing the need for an external heartbeat or cron process. Lastly, I will share some other experiences working with various ISVs to bring their apps to market, focusing on special considerations that an ISV must make.

    Google is looking for admins and devs! Is it OK if I mention this during the Jobs offered/wanted segment? =)
