We launched Vaadin 7 Certification almost a year ago to follow the initial Vaadin 7.0 release. The few hundred of you who have taken the exam have given us valuable feedback on the certification and now, nearly one year later, we're happy to announce new, revised, certification questions. To celebrate this, we've made the certification available for free to all of you for just this week.

During this week the Vaadin 7 Certification exam is free for everybody!

You read that right: No exam fee, if you take the online exam during this week. If you've ever thought about getting a Vaadin certificate, then now is the time to do it. Head over to My Account and take the exam now.

The offer is valid until Sunday, the 16th of March until midnight, and you may try once during the week. 

Be prepared

You shouldn’t take the exam unprepared. And fortunately there are good resources available for you to study.

First of all, the exam is based on the Book of Vaadin. If you don’t have a hard copy, you can always browse it online or download a PDF.

Secondly, we have a huge live Vaadin Q&A session coming up on Wednesday March 12th. If there is something that you want to know and make sure before taking the exam, this is an excellent chance to talk to a Vaadin expert. The schedule is as follows:

Expert schedule for Wednesday March 12th

  • 1.00 PM CET Vaadin Expert Peter Lehto

  • 2.00 PM CET Vaadin Expert Thomas Mattsson

  • 3.00 PM CET Vaadin Expert Leif Åstrand
     

Of course you can ask questions and discuss live, but if you want to ensure your question gets answered, please ask in advance and register to the session.

Not ready yet? Get a personal trainer

For those of you who wish to become certified Vaadin experts, but don’t feel ready yet, we recommend taking a look at the training schedule at vaadin.com/training. There are plenty of chances for you to attend an open classroom training this year, and if you enroll during this week, you can get a 20% discount to any of them!


Good luck everyone!
