Fulfillment Issues -- getting back on the right foot

MySQL Certification had a very busy 2009 with a great deal of change. Not all of the changes happened gracefully and now I am correcting problems with the fulfillment system. Regular readers will remember that MySQL Certification was integrated into the systems used by Sun Learning in mid 2009. Where things got shaky was in the processing of DBA 5.1 certificates.

Previously Ricky Ho and I oversaw data entry, database updates, and fulfillment. The deeply missed Ricky did the heavy lifting in the printing and mailing of certificates. The test data from the multiple choice exams was flowing properly into the new (for MySQL) system but not for the hands-on DBA 5.1 exam. I have been going through the certification records and manually entering the data for the 5.1 DBA certificate holders. It will take a week or so to get things caught up. Meanwhile, if you are still waiting for a certificate for your MySQL 5.1 certification, please let me know at

MySQl Certification exams will be offered at the 2010 O'Reilly MySQL Conference. More details will be posted here as they become available.
