Integration with BigQuery

A project to integrate Salesforce with BigQuery. The client wanted all the data from BigQuery (about two million records) to be copied over to Salesforce on a weekly basis. Because I had to do this for several objects, I developed a dynamic solution so that, based on the information defined into custom metadata, the code would run for the appropriate object.

Form-based Application Built From Scratch

A template-driven application for flexible creation of complex forms in a guided experience that is built 100% natively on the Salesforce platform. I developed the app in both Salesforce Classic and Salesforce Lightning, and I built all the pages and the logic behind those.

Integration with Google Calendar via API

A test Lightning app for managing a medical clinic. I developed the app using Lightning components and Salesforce Apex. I also integrated the app with Google Calendar, using Google Calendar API in order for the clinic to have access to physicians' calendars.

Case Management System for Colorado Department of Human Services

An entire custom application (like a website) used to gather information, calculate scores, and organize data. This app was used both internally and by community users. I built this app from scratch, using Visualforce for the front end and Apex for the back end.

Colorado Department of Education's Improvement Planning Unit

A Colorado statewide, online improvement planning system. The system is designed for use by every school and district to write, edit, review, and submit their unified improvement plans. As the developer for this project, I built all the pages together with the logic and functionality beyond them.

Rebuilt Standard Article Management Page

A standard article management page that I redeveloped using Visualforce pages. The new version provided the existing functionality to search, publish, archive, delete, and filter articles, and I added new, extra filters.
