The Magento 2 Certified Professional Developer exam is a lot harder than to the Magento 1 equivalent. Many Magento 1 certified developers who enter the test expecting to pass have been disappointed. The scenario based questions require the ability to analyze the description, and then relate it to the question and answers. Generic OOP development principles have to be applied to the Magento 2 context.
This presentation covers the underlying principles and discusses some sample questions from the official study guide as well as some new ones. It also offers the opportunity to ask questions and discuss preparation techniques.
Attendees will get an idea of how ready they are to take the exam and how to prepare to pass the desired certification.
