2010 UC Cert Wrap-up

The 2010 MySQL is over but many have left with certifications among their souvenirs. 150 exams were given this year and we now have three new Associates, two new cluster DBAs, two new 5.1 DBAs, twelve new developers, and thirty-eight new 5.0 DBAs! Some folks walked away with two or three new certifications. Those were just the folks who tested this year and does not count those who finished up a 5.0 DBA or 5.0 Developer cert at the UC!

Thank you to all who took exams this year. It takes a few days for the exam data to peculate into the Sun Certification Database but your certification kits will be posted ASAP.

A big thank you to Carey Hardey and Shankar Kondur who ran certifications this year. An Oracle travel ban kept me from attending this year and Carey, from the Oracle University Certification Department volunteered to travel down the treacherous Highway 101 to oversee the exams. Shankar is from Devsquare and made sure the new plaftform for the hands on exam worked properly for the UC.
