Be honest…why would we?

Since Salesforce is “easy” to build allowing for free range to do what we want, how we want (in general), where we want and when we want, has that led to the increased lack of following best practices?

It still works doesn’t it?

Refactoring existing/dead code? nah, that can wait…

Updating prod directly? sure, why not, it’s just a small change, right…

Creating a new profile for every user? OK, if that allows them to do their job…

Hard coding ID’s? yes, for now, we’ll fix that later…

Proper test coverage? yep, Salesforce said it met their limits, we’re all set…DEPLOY!!!

And lastly, lyrics from Another Brick in the Wall (you’ll need to nod your head to the beat):

“We don’t need no education…

We don’t need no thought control…

No dark sarcasm in the classroom

Teachers leave them kids alone

Hey, teachers, leave them kids alone”

“If you don’t eat yer meat, you can’t have any pudding

How can you have any pudding if you don’t eat yer meat?”
