This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


In 2018, the Dev 401 cert will no longer be an active certification. Salesforce has a video that you can watch that will help you with this transition. But there is the Platform App Builder cert which is the "transition" certification before taking Platform Dev 1 and Dev 2. Here is the link: Developer Certifications

Platform Dev 1 focuses on basic coding skills where as Platform Dev 2 is a more advanced test focusing on advanced coding skills with Apex and Visualforce.
