Meeting of Salesforce Developers Study Group. Dev 401 and Dev 501 Exams.
Salesforce.com offers two major certifications for Force.com Developers: The Developer Certification (DEV401) and the Advanced Developer Certification, (DEV501).
Dallas Salesforce Developers Group is pleased to offer FREE classes each year to candidates for these exams. We will hold our study sessions THE THIRD SATURDAY of each month (except June, which will be June 27th). These are classroom style STUDY SESSIONS once a month (not to be confused with our regularly scheduled monthly meetings at Improving Enterprises...this is different)...with the ultimate objective of taking the written exams immediately upon course completion (around August or September of the year).
for the 401 group (everyone welcome)
This group will meet at 11:00 - 12:00. We will be go over one or two chapters of the salesforce.com dev 401 pdf file (look for the pdf in the "files" area of our meetup.com website). Also, if you have not already done so, get a free DE account on Salesforce.com and run through the exercises in the pdf. Don't worry if you don't quite get there. Session Leader: TBD
for the 501 group, we will be using the SFDC Apex Code Developers Guide (google 'apex code developers guide' for the pdf). If you don't already have an account, get a DE account and run through the exercises before our meeting. This group will meet after the 401 group, that is: 12:30 to 1:30, and everyone is welcome to attend. Session Leader: Sunita Manne
All, remember, this is the study group for 401 and 501 (aka the study group). Not to be confused with our 4th Wednesday meeting held at the Improving Enterprise (which is more mischief, no studying). The objective is for each student to take the respective exams at the end of the sessions, so we will keep up the pace. Ask questions. These are not easy exams, but I am convinced that we can get everyone past the finish line.
Final note. We hold the study sessions in conjunction with the North Texas PC users Group. Guest attendance (first time) is free; after that, you will be required to become a member of the North Texas PC Users Group ($36 per year)
