Derek F

I double majored in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, holding Bachelor of Science degrees in both. I went to grad school to try to get a Master of Science degree in Computer Engineering, but was unable to finish (or start, for that matter) my thesis.

I ended up landing in a software development role, working with Salesforce starting in February of 2013.

Prior to developing on the Salesforce platform, most of my experience was volunteer work in PHP.

I jumped into Salesforce development with no Salesforce experience, and only a limited experience with Java and MVC architecture. It's been a bumpy ride at times, and I occasionally curse Salesforce for oddities that I run into.

I joined SFSE after attending a 'meet the moderators' session at Dreamforce 2015, and participating here has pushed my skills and knowledge far beyond what I would have otherwise achieved working on my small team of mostly 1 person.

I enjoy video games, spending entirely too much time watching people on twitch.tv, and have a very deep appreciation for pizza.

From time to time, I'll have a (programming) idea that others might characterize as being 'good'.

I've worked in a variety of programming/scripting/shell languages over the course of my education and career including:

  • Apex
  • C
  • C++
  • Java
  • Lisp
  • Prolog
  • PHP (4 and 5)
  • Ruby
  • ML
  • Javascript (ECMAScript)
  • Scala (a proper subset thereof, a classroom language called COOL2012)
  • MIPS RISC Assembly
  • Bash
  • MATLAB
  • Perl
