DEV401 and DEV501 Study Group Meeting

About this event

Meeting of Salesforce Developers Study Group.  Dev 401 and Dev 501 Exams. offers two major certifications for 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.  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 have a guest lecturer for this meeting.  Nick Kruep is one of the foremost SFDC security configuration experts in the world.  He has configured security for many large enterprises including numerous Fortune 50 corporations.  Nick will be sharing his methods, techniques and best practices with us.  Do NOT miss this meeting.

Session Leader: Nick Kruep, Moyez Thanawalla 

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, Moyez Thanawalla

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)
