Are there any prerequisites for the NEW Anypoint Platform Development: Production-Ready Integrations course?
Yes, there are prerequisites. If a learner does not meet the prerequisites, during registration a message will display stating that they do not meet the prerequisites. The learner would need to complete the Prerequisite Waiver Request form, demonstrating they possess the appropriate knowledge, and that waiver must be approved by MuleSoft Training Support Operations before enrollment in the course.
Prerequisites (as listed on the MuleSoft website and course datasheets)
- Experience developing Mule 4 applications as demonstrated by one of the following:
- Attainment of the MuleSoft Certified Developer - Level 1 (Mule 4) certification
- Completion of the Anypoint Platform Development: Fundamentals (Mule 4) course
- Completion of the Anypoint Platform Development: Mule 4 for Mule 3 Users course
- Experience using Maven to build Mule 4 applications
Note: If you do not have Mule Maven experience, you should first complete the Anypoint Platform Development: Production-Ready Development Practices course.
Can I bypass the prerequisites with my MuleSoft Certified Developer - Integration Professional (Mule 3) Certification?
No, obtaining the MuleSoft Certified Integration Professional (Mule 3) Certification does not satisfy the prerequisites. The course requires demonstrated Mule 4 experience.
Is there a delta course from Mule 3 Advanced to Mule 4 Level 2 courses?
No, learners should take the Mule 4 for Mule 3 Users course to get up to speed on Mule 4 and then get MCD - Level 1 certified with the MCD - Level 1 Delta Certification Exam, though completion of the Mule 4 for Mule 3 Users course is sufficient to meet the necessary prerequisites.
What is the ideal time frame to complete the developer learning pathway? What is the ideal experience for a developer to have outside of the learning path before taking this course?
Assuming the learner meets the prerequisites for the course (i.e. has completed Fundamentals and/or is certified), they will have at least six (6) months of experience on Mule projects, including experience with Maven, MUnit, and DataWeave skills. The student should also have general familiarity with the technologies and paradigms used in Anypoint Platform Development: Production-Ready Integrations, such as message-based integration, SOAP, HTTPS/TLS/mTLS, and OAuth 2.0.
Is it possible to take both Level 2 courses in one week?
No, it is not possible to combine the two courses into one week. The Development Practices course is three days of instruction, and the Integrations course is four days. The Integrations course builds upon the concepts covered in the Development Practices course, with the two courses usually scheduled on different weeks.
Why should I take the Level 2 development courses now?
If you are working on any real-world integration projects, MuleSoft strongly recommends you take these courses now to deepen your skills. They teach skills and best practices needed to work on real-world professional integration projects. All training plans should include both Level 2 courses. All partner developers should also take both Level 2 courses.
