Meeting of Salesforce Developers Study Group. Platform App Builder & Developer 1.
Salesforce.com offers three major certifications for Force.com Developers: The Platform App Builder, the Developer 1 Certification, and the Developer 2 Certification.
Dallas Salesforce Developers Group is pleased to offer FREE classes each year to candidates for the Platform and Dev1 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 Platform App group (everyone welcome)
This group will meet at 9:30 - 10:30. We will be go over one or two chapters of the salesforce.com dev fundamentals 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: Sunita Manne, Cal Smith, Ajomon Joseph, Moyez Thanawalla
for the Dev1 group, we will be using various texts including 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 Platform App group, that is: 11:00 to 1:00, and everyone is welcome to attend. Session Leader: Sunita Manne, Cal Smith, Ajomon Joseph, Moyez Thanawalla
All, remember, this is the study group for certifications (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 expect you to keep up with the material. If you missed a previous session, please do not ask us to go over the material in the following session as that inhibits the group from moving forward. Those questions can be asked before and after the study group sessions.
