Description

Welcome to the Complete Salesforce Certified Platform Developer I Course!

I have designed and built this course to be 100% aligned with the official exam Study Guide of the latest Salesforce Certified Platform Developer I release, and I will be updating it on each subsequent release if necessary. Currently, this course fully covers the latest Winter 20 release, and I am updating the course to cover the latest Spring 20 release.

The official Exam Outline has many Sections; each Section has many topics within it and has its own number of questions weighting (in percentage) out of a total of 60 questions. These are the different sections with the number of questions weighting:

  1. Salesforce Fundamentals - 7%

  2. Data Modeling and Management - 13%

  3. Process Automation and Logic - 38%

  4. User Interface - 25%

  5. Testing, Debugging, and Deployment Tools - 17%


Each topic mentioned in the Study Guide under each Section above is covered in this course, and each topic has at least a video lecture that is divided into a presentation, and a demo on the Salesforce environment. Some topics have up to 5 lectures, like the SOQL, SOSL and DML topic that is under Section 3! 

I am sharing all the slides in PDF so that you could download them and read them offline, and I am also sharing a lot of reference links in each lecture. These references include links to Trailhead modules, links to the sources I have used to build the slides, links to official Salesforce documentation related to the topic, and links to official Salesforce guides and eBooks. 

This course also contains more than 100 quiz questions, none of them are from dumps. I HATE dumps, I have never used them in my IT certifications, and I don't want you to pass this exam based on a bunch of questions from dumps! The questions in this exam are 100% dump free, and they are all designed based on the course content and on real-life scenarios. 

Finally, I have been there, I spent hours and hours preparing for this exam, I dissected each and every topic of the Study Guide, and took tons of notes, just like I did when preparing for my other certifications. I guarantee that after completing this course, and after practicing on the Salesforce environment, you will pass this exam, and you will become Salesforce Platform Developer I Certified! 

Good Luck!
Walid

Wonderful. Lots of good information. I like the extensions and other domain settings in this tutorial

It was good, but i think you need to explain how to add extensions and what not more thoroughly for people who normally don't do that.

Some good information but it's outdated. You will need to find supplemental courses or documentation. A heads up, use Visual Studio Code, the other IDEs mentioned later in the course have been deprecated for years.

Very helpful and informative. Constructive feedback so far is that the instructor moves through the clicks a little quickly, so I have to replay a lot, but other wise the information is great.

Nice course, well explained, specially design for someone that want to approve Dev1 certification. You should update your course to be a 5 stars

Passed my exam. Outdated but still valid. At the time of writing my exam it was January 2022. Supplemented with https://www.freecram.net/exam/PDI-platform-developer-i-pdi-e9775.html

Hi Walid! Great Course man and the content is properly aligned with the exam I would really appreciate if you add some lectures on lightning components as the questions are getting asked on it too in the PD1 certification program. Thanks and I passed my PD1?

Too much theory. Explanation in slides could have been better. I had to watch demo first and then go back to theory slides to understand the content.

It's very good. Concise and precise lectures with advanced topics, easy to understand and detail. Just ask the author to update course with Lightning and this course will be all time bestseller on PD1 Certification.

Topics are OK. The slides have very bad grammar. An annoying thing that plagues both of Walid's courses. He uses numbers (1,2,3 etc.) in place of the text form when it should be used (i.e. always use text for numbers between one and nine). See here: https://canvas.hull.ac.uk/courses/213/pages/writing-numbers#:~:text=Basic%20numbers,use%20words%20rather%20than%20numerals. For example, one of his points says "Don't confuse these 2." It should say "don't confuse these two." Because this course has a LOT of slides, poor grammar is very jarring

Very knowledgeable instructor who has put together a well structured course. However the course does need to be revamped to include Lightning Web Components, Asynchronous APEX, REST API, SOAP API, the Describe methods that are available in SObjectType class, and how to prevent recursion in APEX Triggers. I did gain my PD1, but I had to use other resources to supplement my study. But this course was a good foundation for sure.
