Hi guys! Today we have some awesome news to share with you — we got a new Magento 2 professional developer on our team!
You know perfectly well that Magento 2 development is quite a complex sphere. The creators of the platform do not stand still — they keep constantly updating and supplementing it with all sorts of features.
And even if you are already well-versed in it, you can still discover something new for yourself and broaden your knowledge getting ready for the certification. That is exactly what Magento 2 certified professional developer exam was created for.
Henadzi Kharytonau has been working in Magento 2 development for more than 5 years and his knowledge grew along with his beard :) That is why the certification exam was just a piece of cake for him.
We thought it would be interesting for you to know what it’s like from a developer’s point of view, so we decided to ask him a few questions concerning the exam itself, as well as the best ways to get ready for it.
How do you prepare for the examination and where do you search for Magento 2 certification answers?
I think the best way to prepare for the exam is to constantly work with Magento 2. Reading the official documentation and various useful articles on the Internet related to Magento 2 certification questions can also be helpful. For example, we have a whole blog section dedicated to certification, where specific questions from Magento 2 certification developer are analyzed. A lot of useful information can also be found on Github and even on Twitter using the #realmagento hashtag. Finally, the Google search is always at your services, but be sure to carefully analyse the information and select only reliable resources.
Can Magento 2 Developer Certification Exam be taken from any place? What is needed for the technical implementation of the process?
All you need is a computer and a webcam. I personally also needed to keep the noisy colleagues away from my room. I warned them beforehand that if I fail the exam because of their interference, they will have to pay for the re-test :)
When you are ready for the testing, a guy from Kryterion will contact you and tell you all the instructions on how to properly configure your sound and image. After that everything is down to you.
The test last 90 minutes. Is that enough to answer all the questions?
It’s more than enough if you feel confident about your knowledge. It took me about an hour to complete the test, but it depends.
Is it possible to change the order of questions during the examination?
Yes, you can skip questions and after answering the last one you can come back to those you have skipped.
What were the easiest and the most difficult questions in Magento 2 professional developer certification?
I don’t really know, all the questions are complex in their own way. It all depends on the developer and his knowledge, so everyone will have their own ratings.
We thank Henadzi for the answers and congratulate him on his new professional accomplishment. Keep it up, man!
