Certified Master Architect

AD0-E718

Here's how to become a Certified Master Magento Commerce Architect

Achieving Master Architect is a journey.

A journey which, quite frankly, we are on ourselves. We have yet to achieve this test. And we have yet to hear of anyone that has passed it, either.

Why is this? This test requires the highest level of knowledge in every subject covered. This includes, but isn't limited to: sales, configuration, Commerce-related tools, GraphQL and testing.

The score has been adjusted to 54% as of January 2023.

The roadmap

Because of the difficulty of this test, we are breaking up the journey into several pieces.

Step #1: Navigating your way through GraphQL on Adobe Commerce

The first step in the journey is mastery of GraphQL. GraphQL links a frontend PWA (Progressive Web Application) and Adobe Commerce / Magento. Chris Nanninga, a veteran Adobe Commerce developer, takes you step-by-step through this process.

Step #2 and beyond: TBD

After Adobe dropped the pass score to 54%, we now have an achievable target. We are prioritizing and working on additional training to help you pass this test.

Important note: this study guide was designed for the previous test iteration, AD0-E704.

While this is "outdated", the primary concepts remain the same. This ebook still provides significant value, but we are discounting this to 50% off what we previously sold it for.

What does this ebook cover?

The Master Architect represents the next level certification for Magento backend development knowledge. It is our estimation that passing this test means you are in the top 5% of developer candidates. As agencies recognize the value of this certification, these developers will become in even more demand. To pass, you must achieve a score of 54% or higher.

What is this ebook?

If you desire to achieve this test, look no further than our study guide. We have invested many hours in writing this guide with the goal of helping you be certified as a Magento Certified Professional Developer Plus. In this study guide, we have included:

  • 225 pages of instruction and examples to fill in your understanding of Magento topics.
  • 100+ practical demonstrations pointing you to where you need to go in the Magento code to better grasp these concepts.
  • 24 modules demonstrating common Magento customizations to provide more context and deeper understanding.
  • 2 months of practice test access to determine your readiness to take (and pass) the test.
  • 100% money-back guarantee to prove our commitment to helping you pass.

Who should purchase this ebook?

Good question. First, you need to have access to Commerce code. You might be able to pass with out access to this code, but it's going to be close to impossible.

Beyond access to Commerce code, we see two groups of people who will benefit:

  1. Those with 1+ years of experience developing websites on Magento Commerce who are seeking to achieve the certification.
  2. Those without the necessary experience, but wish to learn and expand their knowledge, but are not seeking to achieve the certification.

Of these two groups, both will benefit. We have written 24 modules that are also included which will provide more insight and experience. However, the chances of a beginner going through the study guide and passing is very, very slim. Experience over the course of a year is what is needed.

This is a risk-free purchase

We stand behind the learning opportunities we provide. That is why everything that is paid from SwiftOtter is guaranteed. If you purchase this study guide and fail the test, we will refund your money paid for the study guide. That is generous (especially in today's era of ever-shrinking customer service).

As such, we ask for your common-sense in determining whether you are ready to take the test. The price of this study guide is still less than the price of the test. If you are a beginner, feel free to purchase the course as a learning aid, but we do not recommend going for the test. If you are hoping for a microchip that you can implant that will help you pass the test, this is not that microchip. However, if you have Magento 2 development experience under your belt, are motivated and wish to get waist-deep in code and apply yourself, then use this to prepare!

We need to apply these restrictions on the guarantee: 1) guarantee applies for 3 months after the purchase date. 2) you must send us your official Magento test scores. Refunds are still our discretion, but we seek to provide the best customer service possible.

Points worth noting:

  • The test can be taken at a testing center or at home. You must have a decent internet connection with at least 1MB up and down.
  • Magento encourages you to have at least 2 years of Magento 2 backend development experience.
  • You can find basic information about the test here.
