Google released an update to its Google Qualified JS Maps Developer Program, which now includes JS Maps API V3 Developer Qualification.
“GQD program uses a version release and points threshold strategy rather than setting an absolute term on earned qualifications. Instead of picking an arbitrary duration such as one year, developers have opportunity to continuously earn points towards their qualification by resubmitting assignments and assisting with exam updates and testing.”
Current JS Maps API developers earned a minimum of 3000 out of a possible 5000 points in order to become qualified.
Now with V3, developers who didn’t participate in early testing have been notified of potential points expiration. Developers will have 30 days to take new V3 exam, and submit new apps using V3 API,” noted Google.
