Saying goodbye to the old certification lists, part 2

I did not mean to stir up a hornets nest!

I received a lot of feedback on the last blog entry on shutting down the old MySQL system and that included the lists of certified candidates. Yes, I know how valuable these lists are. But you might want to check this out ORACLE UNIVERSITY LAUNCHES CERTVIEW. I will see if I can get some details the next time we speak to the fine Oracle Certification folks.

The certification industry have started initiatives like the ITCC to allow you to have your certifications listed for viewing by a potential employers or the world at large. So do not worry that we are taking some draconian action and the knowledge of your accomplishments is being shoved into the great bit bucket in the sky. We just need a little time to transition from system to system (to system).

And feel free to ping us for updates at Certification@MySQL.com or by commenting below.

I understand you are having trouble getting the information out of the Sun Database.
Try this query for extracting the data.

Select * from FormallySunsNowOraclesTopSecretCertificationTable where
CertType in ('CMA','CMDEV','CMDBA','CMDBA');
