The wait is nearly over! There are only a few short weeks until the awesomeness of TrailheaDX is upon us. After the runaway success of last year's inaugural event, TrailheaDX ’17 is set to be the must-attend developer conference of the year. You won't want to miss the 140+ campfires, workshops, and technical sessions covering the latest in Salesforce development and customization. And if networking with your peers from around the world isn't enough—not to mention the giving-back opportunities—your registration now comes complete with two FREE certification vouchers as long as you register by June 1 (UPDATE: free certification offer deadline extended to June 15!).

So not only can you blaze a new trail to developer success, but you can also prove your skills and become a master in over 24 areas of Salesforce specializations. As Salesforce MVP Brain Kwong shared in his recent post, “The truth of the matter is, if you have the knowledge, there's no excuse to not get certified...Certification has become my new method for brushing up on my older skills and learning new ones.” And from 6x certified Diana Martin, “One of my regrets is not starting my Salesforce certification journey sooner!”

TrailheaDX gives you the perfect opportunity to build your expertise and help prepare you for your own certification journey. Whether you're on “team clicks,” “team code,” or somewhere in between, you'll have the chance to learn from the experts about everything you need to create engaging customer experiences with Salesforce—from Einstein to Lightning and beyond.

What's more, did you know that two of the developer-level certifications are prerequisites to the coveted Technical Architect track? That's right—if you earn your Platform Developer I and Platform App Builder certifications (which you can do by using those two handy FREE certification vouchers you'll get with your TrailheaDX reg), you're then only two Designer exams away from becoming an Application Architect!

As Salesforce certification enthusiast Michael Drzewiecki shares, “That feeling of passing your first certification is amazing...I was hooked!” And this from the man who's gone from zero certs to knocking on the Certified Technical Architect door in less than six months!

12x certified and Salesforce MVP Adam Olshansky is a cert convert who will also be trailblazing his way to TrailheaDX next month. “I’ve come a long way in a very short amount of time and have loved every minute of it. If there were just two pieces of advice I could leave you with, they would be: 1. Never stop learning.
2. Get certified.”

And if you're a developer master but a certification newbie, we've got you covered with a few handy hints from our instructors on how to nail those exams. Not to mention Salesforce MVP and 22x certified Mayank Srivastava, who has added over 10,000 answers to the Success Community! With that level of expertise, you’ll want to check out his top certification study tips too!

Buckle up Trailblazers, for a learning adventure that will help bring a whole new level of focus to your TrailheaDX game plan. But hurry, this incredible free certification offer expires on June 1 (UPDATE: free certification offer deadline extended to June 15th!) (T&Cs apply). So secure your place today and let our engineers, scientists, and product leaders be your guides on your path to the top of the summit.
