Any idea how many people have their Advanced developer certification worldwide/domestically? Is it closer to 1000? 10,000? Just wanted to get some statistics on that..

  • Not sure but this is definately must for apex and visualforce programmers . Commented Nov 26, 2013 at 5:18
  • Unfortunately Salesforce doesn't publish these numbers, although it never hurts to email [email protected] and see if they'll give you a ballpark. Commented Nov 26, 2013 at 21:43

The listings page at Salesforce shows a thousand people. Some simple statistics on names could give a rough estimate. However, many people probably choose not to be on there and it's not listed by certificates.

    I don't think you have to have a 501 cert to be listed there (but I could be wrong). Commented Nov 26, 2013 at 19:12
  • Yes, anyone who has a login to the success community can add their name and state that they have "Apex / VF skills"
