VS Code Extension HAHAHUGOSHORTCODE-0xc0016caa00-1-HBHB We are happy to announce a new VS Code Extension for interacting with ServiceNow offline. Community-created VS Code extensions have existed for some time. The ServiceNow version hopes to grow with your feedback and use. You can find the documentation on the developer site. As developers, we are not always able to have stable internet connections so that the offline capabilities will be a boon for those situations.

Developer Days In India The ServiceNow Developer Advocacy team just completed a lovely and extended visit to India. India has the most significant number of ServiceNow developers outside of the United States of America. Having so many developers makes it a pivotal place to visit to engage, empower, inspire, and listen to developers. The key events were developer meetups and all-day workshops at multiple locations. Dave Slusher - an experienced hand at India trips - and Andrew Barnes traveled from the east coast of the USA.

Over the weekend I ran into a problem that gave the “too many errors: 88% scanned” error in one of my Script Includes. I had to figure part of it out on my own and then lo and behold andrew.kincaid also answered it in the community yesterday. When I presented at the inaugural ServiceNow Developer Meetup in Seattle, I did a demo of the Istanbul Script Debugger. I noted that in the application I am currently developing, almost all of the serious logic lives in Script Includes.

This is a continuation of the trip report of our trip to India for Developer Days. Part 1 is here. After concluding the Hyderabad Developer Day event, we rolled right into the evening program. The reason for having a separate event in the evening was two-fold. It both allowed for us to serve the population of people who couldn’t take the whole day off work but also was intended to build an organization around an ongoing Hyderabad ServiceNow Developer Meetup.

The ServiceNow Developer Program recently went on the road in the form of a road trip to India. This will be a bit of a departure for blog posts here in the form of a trip report. We will return you to your regular diet of nerdy technical posts shortly. India is an important market for the Developer Program. By any metric you choose to examine, it is always the second largest demographic behind the USA.

When we left Part 2 of this series, I had added an inbound email action to create GTD actions from forwarded emails. As this development project was always intended to be a demo tool as well, when it came time for us to do demos developing Angular Service Portal widgets I looked around for functionality to add. I had already done some experimentation with using ngMaterial to create a card interface for this Helsinki feature webinar so I decided to bring a similar interface into DoNow.

In my first part , I talked about the background of an application we are building. With this post, I want to get into the specifics of the first big problem I tackled. In my previous GTD implementation, I used Evernote as the main tool. One of the features I got for free with that was the ability to receive email from arbitrary email addresses. Evernote gives you a private email address that you can use to forward email to the system, where it will be converted into a note.
