ADEW Certification FAQ

This section answers some of the frequently asked questions related to the Adobe Developer Enablement Workshops (ADEW), leading to ADEW Level 1 Certification, to be held at Adobe Flash Platform Summit 2011 on the 29th of July 2011.

I already have an Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) up my sleeve. How is ADEW useful for me?

An ACE is a person who has demonstrated a professional level in proficiency with one or more Adobe software products. In contrast, the ADEW is targeted to certify developers on specific areas of expertise. These can range from areas as specific as the method of profiling Flex applications to using MVC frameworks. As a result, the ADEW workshops will be organized more often, as and when Adobe wants to create deeper knowledge for specific areas. What this means is that even if you are ACE certified with one or more Adobe software products, ADEW will help you keep abreast with new developments or delve into areas that were not specifically covered by ACE.

I am already ACE certified, is the ADEW an upgrade?

ADEW is complementary to ACE. ACE certified professionals will find value in ADEW because it will certify professional expertise on newer, more specific areas. There is no hierarchical relationship between ACE and ADEW. Over time, Adobe may choose to consolidate some of the topics covered in ADEW to create an ACE certification, but there are no immediate plans for this.

Why should I pay for a workshop when I am already ACE certified?

As mentioned previously, ADEW is complementary to ACE. In addition to that, ADEW is a workshop, and not just a certificate. It is delivered by experienced and talented presenters who have deep knowledge of the subject. Each ADEW instructor is a well known and respected figure in the Flex and Enterprise application spheres. They include the likes of Duane Nickull, Deepa Subramaniam, Mayank Kumar, Ramesh Srinivasaraghavan, Harish Sivaramakrishnan, and so on. More

I am considering a certification, should I pay for ACE or ADEW?

As both of these are complementary, you should consider choosing both. ACE is the certification that defines your expertise in a product, while ADEW focuses on building your expertise in using the products for specific scenarios OR specific solution areas that need usage and expertise spanning multiple products.

On completion of ADEW how do I get ACE certified?

ADEW provides insights into using products for specific scenarios OR specific solution areas that need usage and expertise spanning multiple products. Once you complete one or more of ADEW workshops, you can choose to also get ACE certified in products that were covered in ADEW. As described above, these are complementary.

How do I get certified for Level 2 and Level 3. I don't see any roadmap

Adobe is rolling out the ADEW workshops for the first time at AFPS 2011. This is an inaugural launch with 6 different workshops being organized. As this is an inaugural launch, we plan to organize Level 1 workshops only, as Level 2 and Level 3 workshops are likely to have Level 1 workshops as pre-requisites. Progressively, Adobe will roll out Level 2 and Level 3 workshops, in addition to other Level 1 workshops. The availability of these will be announced through standard Adobe channels.

How will the ADEW Workshops be delivered? What about Software pre-requisites and should I carry my own laptop?

ADEW content will be delivered by an inspirational technologist who can explain the importance and relevance of a technology or concept, explain how it is relevant and fits into various industry scenarios. Bring Your Own Laptop (BYOL) - attendees are encouraged to bring their own laptop. You will be provided with software, or instructions to obtain software as appropriate. Software provided for the workshop may be valid for the period of the workshop only. Attendees may choose to attend the workshop without a laptop also.

What are the ADEW Workshops that are being covered under ADEW - Level at AFPS 2011?

Please look up for more information.

Now that I have the entire scoop on the ADEW Workshops, can you tell me what the criteria are for Certification?

Broadly there are three criteria's for awarding the ADEW Level 1 certificate:

  • Successful attendance of Workshop for entire duration on July 29th at AFPS 2011.
  • Active participation during workshop
  • There may be a quiz at the end of the workshop that the attendee will have to successfully complete

Certificates will be provided to all attendees who meet the above criteria at the end of the ADEW Workshop day 1800 Hrs, 29th July 2011.
