With many of our developers at FortyFour specialized in Magento, we end up spending a lot of time talking about the platform. While many in the digital service industry are familiar with Magento, not everyone knows what it means to be a Magento 2 Solution Specialist. Becoming a specialist requires an exam, and we’re here to walk you through exactly what that exam entails.
What is it?
According to the Magento website, “a Magento 2 Solution Specialist is an expert user of the Magento 2 e-commerce platform. Drawing on a deep background in business and e-commerce, the Magento 2 Solution Specialist can efficiently align business objectives with Magento 2 functionality, optimize use of native features, and avoid unnecessary customization. Whether as a merchant, a manager, a consultant, or an analyst, the Magento 2 Solution Specialist knows how to make the best use of Magento 2 features and functionality.”
As a Magento 2 Certified Solution Specialist, a developer should not only have knowledge of Magento basics, but also be able to apply what they know in the best possible way to help the client. The exam serves as confirmation that he or she is able to do so, while still aligning with Magento’s core development principles.
