Don't take life too seriously. You'll never get out of it alive.

Exporting Salesforce Files (aka ContentDocument)

Last week a client asked me to help out, we had been creating a system that creates PDF files in Salesforce using Drawloop (today known as Nintex Document Generation which is a boring name). Anyways, we had about 2000 PDF created in the system and after looking into it there doesn’t seem to be a way to download them in bulk. Sure you can use the Dataloader and download them but you’ll get the content in a CSV column and that doesn’t really fly with most customers.

Uploading CSV data to Einstein Analytics with AWS Lambda (Python)

I have been playing around with Einstein Analytics (the thing they used to call Wave) and I wanted to automate the upload of data since there’s no reason on having dashboards and lenses if the data is stale. After using Lambda functions against the Bulk API I wanted to have something similar and I found another nice project over at Heroku’s GitHub account called pyAnalyticsCloud I don’t have a Postgres Database so I ended up using only the uploader.
