HDPCD Spark certification getting over for a while



Helllo dear community, I was planning start my training to take the Spark developer certification offered by HDP, however on the official page there is this announcement:

we will not be accepting any new scheduling of the HDPCD Spark exam until an estimated date of August 15, 2018

Someone knows how long will take till the new exman will be available and how different and deep this one will be ? I dont know if the current guideline offered by mr Durga on the youtube videos will be enough or if it’s required a wide update.

I appreciate any news about it community.

thanks so much.

Going by description it appears that they are just upgrading exam infrastructure. It does not say that exam contents are being upgraded.

This is a welcome change. Many people had complained about difficulties while taking exam.
