The Developer certicate assumes that you want to know how to extend and customize KBC further.  This track will be for the technically inclined, and assumes you have coding experience.  With successful completion, you will be able to build your own data app, and/or connect to any data source no matter how obscure the source. 

The certificate requires completion of Generic Extractor, KBC APIs, Component Behind the Scenes, and Component Creation. 

Experience and knowledge with integrating with APIs is expected. 

If you have already completed any of the assignments, you will not be required to resubmit in order to qualify for completion of the certificate.
