Integration Architecture study group starting June 12

Natalya Murphy will be starting a 7-session study group for the Integration Architecture Designer exam beginning on Tuesday, June 12 with a goal of having participants ready to take the exam the week of July 24. Group size will be capped at 8 people and all participants will be expected to actively contribute to the success of the group, as described below. Meetings will be held at 7-9 pm Eastern time via Google Hangouts but we may not use the full 2 hours each week.

If you’re interested in participating, fill out the application at https://tinyurl.com/sfint0618. Selected participants will be contacted no later than June 11.

If you have questions, contact Natalya via the Trailblazer community.

Each week, participants will individually study the planned topics, and then prepare flashcard-type questions and exam-type questions to share with the group. We will hold a weekly call lasting 1-2 hours to discuss the previous-week’s study topics. During the weekly calls, participants will take turns sharing key points from their studies the previous week, discuss any experience they’ve had with hands-on implementation of the material covered, and review a subset of flashcard and mock exam questions generated by the group. Participants will also have access to a private Slack channel for communication throughout the week.
