Matías Penela Re-Certifies as Kentico Xperience Developer

Congratulations to BlueModus Solution Lead, Matías Penela, who recently passed Kentico Xperience’s Developer certification exam on version 12. The certification is valid for two years and Matías previously earned this certification in November 2018. Additionally, Matías is a certified Kentico Experience Marketer, which he earned in February 2020.

Kentico Xperience is Kentico Software’s digital experience platform, which provides content management, digital marketing, and commerce tools in a single .NET MCV solution for powering websites, intranets and webstores.

“There have been major changes to the Kentico Xperience platform these past two years – especially in versions 12 and 13. Technologists, like Matías, who mastered the previous portal mode architecture now have an exciting opportunity to shift to providing our clients solutions utilizing the newer MVC architecture,” notes BlueModus Director of Development Nick Bushnell. “We are proud of Matías for getting up to speed on the advancements within the platform and achieving this certification once again.”

The Kentico Xperience 12 Certified Developer Exam is a secure, online exam comprised of 50 questions that must be completed within 90 minutes. To pass, a technologist needs not only knowledge of Xperience’s features and functionality, but also the ability to demonstrate practical experience using the product. The exam focuses on topics and skills such as:

  • Determining the application’s data structure and storage
  • Selecting the appropriate development model and approach
  • Mapping project requirements to Xperience features
  • Presenting data using the API
  • Setting up the development environment for teams
  • Customizing out-of-the-box features
  • Optimizing the application’s performance
  • Troubleshooting and debugging the application
  • Deploying the solution to different runtime environments
  • Maintaining the application through its lifecycle

“While we have been taking advantage of Kentico 12’s latest features for several of our clients, it is exciting and rewarding to be officially certified on Kentico 12. I am also looking forward to the next iteration of the platform and all the improved features Kentico Experience has to offer,” says Matías.

BlueModus, as the #1 Kentico Xperience Solution Partner worldwide, remains very proud of the number of certified Kentico professionals on the team. With the inclusion of Matías and this re-certification, we employ 45 Kentico Xperience Certified Developers, as well as 50 Kentico Xperience Certified Marketers – the most of any Kentico Xperience Solution Partner.
