A Site Developer Certificate confirms a developer's experience in website configuration with small projects using Magnolia.

An example of small projects would be landing pages or a website for small-sized companies.

The developer should have thorough experience in creating website structure, templating, using Magnolia Templating Essentials (MTE) and, most importantly, site definition.

Not necessarily.

As an individual developer, you are not obliged to attend a training and be certified. However, for partners, it is mandatory that your developers meet prerequisite requirements such as having attended a training and successfully passed certification exams.

We still highly recommend attending an instructor-led training for better guidance and understanding of Magnolia 5.4+ taught by Magnolia Experts.

It is highly recommended that developers attend an instructor-led training for better passing results. On the other hand, we also offer free online resources for self-learning:

You only need to have programming background, especially in Java. For Front-end developers, we will have a Light Development Workshop where you learn how to work on Magnolia projects in your comfort zone. Keep posted or contact us for more information!

Having been an important role in a development team and having extensive experience in working on Magnolia projects that have gone live should be enough preparation for the assessment to be awarded the Professsional Developer Certificate.
