Does anybody know what happened to https://www.inkling.com/store/salesforce-university/ ?

When I access the page I don't see anything; searching in inkling store also doesn't bring relevant results... Books still seem to be included in Google's (cached) search results but there's no actual content.

There used to be books available to assist you with "Architect yourney" and "Designer exams".

I don't think they ever were available as PDFs, it was something you can read online / via smartphone app but still - I feel I'm bit screwed now planning to attack next exam...


Possibly related problem: http://resourceondemand.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/SGCertifiedIntegrationArchitectureDesigner.pdf mentions this on page 4:

To prepare for this exam, Salesforce University recommends at least one year of Integration Architecture experience and familiarity with the Integration Architecture eBook in the Architect Academy. Salesforce University recommends the following instructor-led and online courses, and other resources to guide your study:

that's also a dead link for me. Awesome.

Any idea whom we can contact or whatever?

Click on left side "Architects" menu for each respective certifications.

Now all the documents are pdf formats, so we can refer them at offline too.

Found some official statement from SF, buried deep in Certification FAQ:

Q: I cannot find the ebooks in Inkling. Where are they located?

A: We are in the process of migrating our ebooks over to Trailhead and they are currently located on our Certification website under the Architect section. Each PDF can be found with the associated certification that it references.
