For the duration of this week only you have the possibility to become a Vaadin 7 Certified developer with no cost at all. As a certified developer, you can showcase your know-how in your CV on the vaadin.com portal (badges on the forum and your profile) and on LinkedIn, but most importantly, you have proof that you have what it takes to be a Vaadin expert.
The certification test is an online test that you can take at home or at work any time.
The best way to prepare for the test is to skim through the Book of Vaadin and have it at hand during the test. The test is divided into a few different sections, namely Basics, Architecture, Server-side application basics, Components, Layout Components, Data model, Themes, Client-side development and Add-ons. In order to pass the exam, you’ll need to get 60% of the questions right.
A good background for the test is having passed the Vaadin Fundamentals training. For those of you who still haven’t participated in a training, there is a 20% discount on all Vaadin Trainings when you sign up this week. This goes for Vaadin Fundamentals, Advanced Vaadin and Extending Vaadin, both onsite and online. The next online training starts on Tuesday, October 21st, so sign up quickly at vaadin.com/training
Take the exam.
Take the exam between October 20th and October 26th to show the world your Vaadin skills!
