What is a salesforce.com developer?

Developers are those within an organisation who can develop cloud applications, mainly through force.com.

What does a salesforce.com developer do?

Salesforce.com say:

First, take Building Applications with Force.com. You’ll learn how to design and build  applications with clicks, not code. This course is a must for understanding the basics and knowing how to choose the right development tools for every project. Then, follow up with the online course Analytics as a Service at your convenience, to learn all about reporting.

Next, take Force.com Code & Force.com Page Controllers. You’ll learn how to use our programming languages to expand your SaaS applications and create new ones. Follow up with the online course Managing Development with Force.com to learn about tools and best practices for application management in the cloud.

So what’s the difference between a Certified Developer and a Certified Advanced developer?

To become a Certified Developer you’ll need to take two courses:

1. Building Apps with Force.com

2. Analytics as a Service

To become a Certified Advanced Developer you’ll need to take two further courses:

1. Force.com code & force.com page controllers

2. Managing Development with force.com
