Magento 2 JavaScript Developer Exam insights

Igor Rain, a young and promising developer from BelVG, has recently passed the JavaScript certification with flying colors, scoring 83.33%. We congratulate him once again and ask him a couple of questions about his experience and impressions.

Who, in your opinion, needs to pass this exam?

I believe it would be useful to any Magento developer who currently works or is planning to work with JavaScript. I am a backend developer, and although JavaScript is a frontend technology, I still felt the need to study it, so that I would be qualified to complete more versatile tasks and perform advanced customizations in Magento.

Have you already applied your JavaScript knowledge on practice?

In fact, yes. I am currently working on a Caskers webstore project, and recently there were a couple of bugs – one with checkout, another with an authorization popup window. The skills that I acquired while preparing for the JavaScript exam allowed me to fix the issues myself.

How did you study for Magento 2 JavaScript Developer Exam?

Well, Magento provides a free study pdf guide for this exam, but it contains only questions and no answers. At the moment, there is no comprehensive tutorial for this exam, so I and a colleague of mine decided to write one ourselves! It was hard, obviously, harder than simply studying the pre-made material, but at the same time, I realized that I retained the information much better.

In the near future, the Magento 2 JavaScript Developer tutorial that we wrote will be released at BelVG’s blog. I hope that the knowledge we share there will come of use to hundreds of developers who will be getting ready for the exam.

How long did it take you to get ready for the exam?

I began studying in January, so it was 5 months in my case.

What questions from your certification exam did you remember the most? Were there any unexpected questions?

No, there were no surprises – all the 60 questions were mentioned in the Magento study guide.
The questions that I remembered the most…. perhaps, about the mixins and their use for customization, and UI components creation and customization. That was useful knowledge that I expect to apply soon to future projects.

Do you have any plans to pass another Magento certification?

The JavaScript was my third Magento certifications, but I do not plan to stop at what I achieved. I will take a short break from my studies and will soon begin getting ready for the Magento 2 Certified Professional Developer Plus – this one, I expect, will be much harder.

We wish Igor good luck with his future exams and congratulate him once again on successfully passing Magento 2 Certified Professional JavaScript Developer exam!
