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
which lists the BSD Associate (BSDA) examn objectives on 57 pages.
There is currently no training material available
that covers all the examn objectives, and that allows
people interested in the certification to start learning.
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.
Jeremy Reed reminds me that he has startet
a Wiki-based approach
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!
