Today I passed the Salesforce Platform Developer II Exam!

I might have gotten out of hand with the flash cards…

Here is my breakdown:

Section-Level Scoring:
  • Salesforce Fundamentals: 80%
  • Data Modeling and Management: 100%
  • Logic and Process Automation: 91%
  • User Interface: 66%
  • Performance: 100%
  • Integration: 62%
  • Testing: 87%
  • Debug and Deployment Tools: 100%

Back in March, I started the prep work for the Platform Developer 2 exam. First, I went through each of the required super badges: Apex Specialist, Data Integration Specialist, Aura Components Specialist, and Advanced Apex Specialist.

After, with the super badges included, I completed the full Platform Developer II trailmix which was 95 hours of content.

I loved the test! I thought it was a lot of fun and a good challenge. I feel like studying for this test also made me a better developer. You get much more into the weeds from a technical perspective and learn a lot of cool things about Query optimization and performance best practices to make your application stellar. I also just signed up for the Salesforce Integration Architecture Designer which I am really excited to take! I will keep you posted on how that’s going. In the meantime, let me know if you have any questions about the exam or any of the content that should be covered to prepare for it. Happy coding!
