Cleared Salesforce Developer Certification DEV401 - Sharing Experience

Hi everyone, this is my first blog on Salesforce, I just love Salesforce, just now cleared DEV401 certification, this is my first certification so felt like to share my sharing my experience.



I have been preparing for it since last 2 months, when I was looking for salesforce study guide or something to study and learn about salesforce, so I got the Salesforce Recruiter App , it is one of the important study material anyone shoud go through before appearing in the certification.
I got hands-on in Salesforce from the recruiter app only, it have great explanation about most of the basic thing of salesforce like Objects ( Standard and Custom), Workflow, Validation rule, Approval Process, Roles, Profiles and Reports and Dashboards etc.

Few things I didn't get in the book was about the "Encrypted field" of Salesforce and I got few question in the exam about this field, so please look into this field how it works and permissions to access the encrypted field.

Few months ago recruitment app was the only rigid material that anybody would recommend for the developer certification, but I will recomment you all a latest thing for the salesforce learner and that is #trailhead

 Yes  #trailhead, trailhead is right now the only place where you will love learning the Salesforce, it is so amazing that you can't stop yourself for trailing.
When I started on the trailhead right on the same day I ended up having 3-4 badges. Now I have more than 60 badges :)

And now you know how many badges I have, take a look



So please start trailing asap, few thing I did before going for the certification was
  • Look into the Study guide of DEV401 ceritifcation provided by the salesforce
  • Understanding the data model of salesforce
  • Few feature of the salesforce like workflow and approval process.
  • Relationships is also one of the important thing need to cover which you will get in recruiter app.
  • Deep dive in Validaton rules and type of fields, roles and profile ( permissions )


All the best for those who are going for the certification, start feeling lucky because you have trailhead now.
Hope I have motivated someone, keep learning Salesforce !!
