I try to work on things I am excited about as much as possible because I work “harder, better, faster, stronger.”
Here are a few things I’m excited about at the moment:
(2) 12 Factor App. Not commented on heavily with the Salesforce community though a product not only of top-notch Heroku smarts but also with commentary from top Salesforce eggheads (e.g. Mountjoy), I think this is the sort of document we will be reviewing in five years as “prophetic.” In many ways, the future is already here, but it will take most of us a long time to realize it.
(3) jQuery. I know that there is nothing new here, but as a diehard jQuery enthusiast, I still think its time of triumph “in the enterprise” is coming soon as people finally get the message (and also realize that UI of their product is important).
(4) Berlin. Not quite Silicon Valley but people are picking up the torch and I expect to see more significant European-based challengers instead of just imitators over the next few years. Don’t doubt the Curry Wurst.
(5) Polyglot solutions. Even though it has often failed to invest substantially in its own open source ecosystem, Salesforce has taken something of a lead in acquiring in the fascinating although occasionally murky world of “polyglot” solutions, where various languages are used to provide what presumably is the “right tool for the job.” Despite the occasionally murkiness and gangs of cheerleaders without any real understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of various technology sets, I’m excited to see more definition about what constitutes the “right tool for the job” and robust composite solutions — of course, expect to see this more on the “bottom up” Heroku side than the typically top-down Salesforce side.
(6) Fractals. Okay, probably you know this already, but I think other people are finally starting to get the message about just how “fractal-eque” many parts of the world are.
