G’day and welcome! My name is Andrew Albury-Dor, and I’ve been invited by Andrew and Brad to “Have the honor of contributing to the ServiceNow Developer Blog” (Really, they want more content, I know your tricks!). If you haven’t heard of me, I’m one of the 2020 Developer MVPs , and I’m very excited to be here! To introduce myself, I work for Auto & General Insurance in Brisbane, Australia, and have been developing on the ServiceNow platform for about four years.
The ServiceNow Developer Program sponsors and helps build engagement and community through the 60+ global Developer Meetups. The meetups are still occuring in an online setting. Now, it is easier than ever to connect with developers from your area and around the world. No commuting necessary. Find a meetup near you to join the events remotely now, and then once we are back to having in person events you can join in.
Do no Harm I am going to share some fun things I have used to entertain co-workers. These are meant to be fun and should be used in that spirit. Which type of easter egg The first step is to decide what sort of exciting thing you will add to the system. Things like the Konami Code in Service Portal is a great easter egg you can have any time.
The teaser is no longer needed. The new site is here! The site has been rebuilt to be streamlined and personalized so you can get the information you are seeking faster, and take the actions you need quicker. In addition to all the existing content, the site has introduced content for developers and designers to leverage the new Now Experience UI Framework and Design System. Most of the site is now built from the ground up with the tools provided in the UI Framework.
Changes are coming to the Developer Site - Don’t Panic! Hello, fellow ServiceNow Developers! Grab your towels and get ready! In a few weeks, you will notice a completely new user experience on the Developer Site. After five years, we figured it was time for an update. We have made considerable changes to the site while maintaining our core values: the site is useful and is easy to use. Once the redesign of the site is launched, we will have a follow-up blog post that walks you through the changes in detail so you can instantly take advantage of the site.
We are pleased to announce a brand new program, ServiceNow Developer MVPs. The MVPs are a collection of ServiceNow community members that are passionate about ServiceNow and share their extensive knowledge freely to help and encourage developers of all skill levels and types. They write blogs, share apps, craft videos, live-stream, contribute to social media, give talks, lead Developer Meetups, answer questions on the community forum and slack all to share and give back to this great community.
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.
The ServiceNow Developer Program recently went on the road to visit London. NowForum: London edition featured one full day of content just for developers with 800 attendees. The second day which was for all things ServiceNow had 2,500 attendees. Dave Slusher, Chuck Tomasi, Jason Mckee, and Andrew Barnes were all teaching workshops on day 1 of the event. You are welcome to jump down to the event proper if you don’t want to read about my travels!
Developer Days From now until the end of the year ServiceNow and the developer program will be hosting events at several locations around the world. Dave Slusher and Andrew Barnes will be at several of these events. We hope you are able to attend and meet in person while learning more about ServiceNow! The one day events are typically focused on the new developer. The 2nd of a two day event is targeted towards moderately experienced developers.
Over the last year, one of the big efforts that josh.nerius has been pursuing is getting the ServiceNow Developer Meetups active and rolling. A year ago we had a core set of three of them that were active, now thanks to his hard work we have 22 meetups around the world and that number is still growing. I am going to go on a bit of a road show this summer attending a few of them and I wanted to highlight them.
