Hello David. Nailed the PD1 certification today. Am i the first one to do it this soon? or am i too late? Please tell me i am eager to know. Whatever the answer is but thanks for motivating me to do it so soon. I am really thankful to you. :)
Congrats Shrey! Email me at sfdc99.mailbag with proof!
Congratulations to Shrey for passing although unfortunately I had to rule his submission as ineligible as he already has a developer job! This contest is specifically for non-developers unfortunately – very sorry!! At least you have a shiny new cert =)
Also in case anyone else is wondering you have to have posted in this post before getting the cert! This is to prevent people with the cert from finding this post after the fact and claiming a shirt!
Email me Shrey! email@example.com
I will get Platforn Developer I in Januari 2017
1. Actually keen to be Salesforce Certified – but studying in order suggested on your site. Dev 201 targeted first, then Platform-I certification.
2. Job search in Salesforce, a crucial part & motive for the certification.
Hence, listing both here – not very keen for any shirt etc. but surely keen to get myself achieve above targets within Jan 2017 (Feb 2017 at max for landing a job in salesforce – for 2017 almost started now)
Wish me good luck & pray for my good 2017 start with success in above goals.
Happy New Year to you as well.
Good luck Vivek!!!
Hope you are good :)
I am trying my best to two achieve both the goals,
1) To get a job in Salesforce company.
2) To clear the platform exam as well
Thanks and Regards
