[20120128] BSD Certification and the lack of training material - a call for participation! (Updated)
As you are aware, there's a BSD Associate Certification available from the BSD Certification group (that I'm a member of, working as subject matter expert for NetBSD). That's good!

There's also is a PDF which lists the BSD Associate (BSDA) examn objectives on 57 pages. That's neccessary!

There is currently no training material available that covers all the examn objectives, and that allows people interested in the certification to start learning. That sucks!

Now that's where I'd like to ask the NetBSD (and actually the whole BSD community) for support: This is not a small task, but I think it would be worthwhile for the whole community to have that available, either in closed (paper/book) or in public (electronic) form.

Any takers?

Update: Jeremy Reed reminds me that he has startet a Wiki-based approach to cover all topics of the BSDA, with the eventual goal to publish the result in book form. There is a Wiki-to-PDF transformation engine already in place, and the primary focus can be put on the contents at this point. So, this is the point where YOU come in. Have a look, get involved, participate in a novel project!
