July 22, 2020

TA Digital congratulates all the recipients of the Drupal Grand Master Certifications. The list of Grand Master honorees includes Babita Neog (Technical Lead), Rajdeep Paul (Associate Technical Lead), Devender Reddy (Associate Technical Lead), Deepthi Gedela (Software Engineer), Sreenivasulu Purucheri (Principal Engineer), and Avinash Meena (Principal Software Engineer).

TA Digital is honoured to have 6 of the fewer than 300 Grand Master Certified Drupal professionals in the world.

The Grand Master badge is the global benchmark of Drupal expertise in the Drupal community. A Grand Master is someone who has demonstrated advanced Drupal expertise by successfully clearing all 3 certification levels―Acquia Certified Developer, Acquia Certified Back End Specialist, and Acquia Certified Front End Specialist. Grand Master credentials are awarded for both Drupal 7 and Drupal 8.

To achieve the prestigious Grand Master accreditation, a candidate must pass the developer, front end, and back end Acquia certification exams within a year. Each exam validates skills and knowledge in different areas from fundamental web development to Drupal Core API.

The Grand Master badge gives developers a significant edge in the development world and provides an enormous amount of credibility in the Drupal community. As the number of knowledgeable and engaged developers globally increases, Drupal’s importance too is growing thereby making it an important skill that companies can leverage for their digital experiences.

Grand Master certifications are a trusted benchmark in the industry. A large number of companies specifically look for this Acquia Certification, which speaks volumes about the authority this certification has established.

“Heartfelt congratulations to Babita, Rajdeep, Devender, Deepthi, Sreenivasulu, and Avinash for this tremendous accomplishment. There are less than 300 Drupal 8 Grandmasters in the world and to be counted in that prestigious fraternity is an honor. I know I speak for everyone at TA Digital when I express how proud and excited, we are about all the great things all of you are doing.” said Dr. Ali Alkhafaji, CTO, TA Digital.

Drupal is one of the leading open-source Content Management Systems (CMS) with one of the largest open source communities in the world. Today, it stands as the most flexible and adaptable system to create advanced websites and applications.
