A brief warning – the little “Extra” at the very end of this episode contains some mild swearing and 1 word that has been bleeped. I recommend if you are offended by mild language to end the podcast when you hear the closing music.
A joke this episodes comes from “Jason.” “Jason” – if this is your real name – neglected to share his last name or organization that he works for. It may be due to the quality of his joke, which definitely is low for even the high standards we’ve set so far. Regardless, we appreciate listener submissions and Jason felt his joke was funny enough to share with the world, so you’ll find his joke writer debut in this episode.
Mark and I talk briefly about Parker House Rolls, named for Boston’s Parker House Hotel where it was invited in the late 19th century. Marks claims this may be a Wisconsin regional item but I believe Mark is simply sheltered. You can find my favorite recipe here (Thanks Alton Brown) http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/parker-house-rolls-recipe.html or if you have Amazon, just watch the episode.
Interview: Andy Boettcher – Demand Chain Systems, Chief Architect
This is our second “Career Chatter” interview. There are so many different careers and jobs that involve Salesforce beyond being and administrator or a developer. We explore some of these options be it working at salesforce.com, a partner, or one of the many other areas that involve Salesforce is some form.
Andy Boettcher is the Chief Architect at Demand Chain Systems. His role is a collection of other jobs a little bit of Business Analyst, a little bit project manager, a little bit of a developer, and a little bit of everything.
Andy says, “If you want to help people, an architect path is a really good goal to reach for…”
Andy’s recommends that if you want to become a Chief Architect is to make mistakes, learn from those mistakes, and then teach your peers your lessons. You need a broad spectrum of knowledge from salesforce.com, systems, platforms, web technologies, business and business process. You need to be able to speak comfortably and from a position of experience and trust across those categories.
We learn that in addition to being a Chief Architect, Andy is also a Certified BBQ Chefs. This has nothing to do with his job, but it’s a nice cover for a typo in our interview notes. We also know family means a lot to Andy, despite forcing his daughter to watch Monty Python’s Holy Grail with him.
