Preparing for the Exam
Achieving recognition as a Liferay Certified Professional Front-End Developer demonstrates that you understand core concepts for front-end development on Liferay. The exam is designed to be challenging, yet fair for Liferay developers. Here’s how you can succeed:
This exam is based off of the Liferay Training course Front-End Developer.
Attend the Front-End Developer training course. Attending training is not required before you sit for the exam, but much of the exam material is based on concepts covered in training.
Review additional source material. Liferay Developer Network is an amazing complementary source of information for the exam.
Get hands-on development experience. Some of the topics covered on the exam require the kind of knowledge that comes from real experience developing for the Liferay Platform. If you have attended a developer training, be sure you've completed and reviewed all of the exercises presented during class, even the bonus exercises. If you haven't attended training, spend some time developing applications and customizations. It would also be helpful to review Liferay’s source code to ensure you're familiar with Liferay's best practices.
