Who certified MySQL what?

Some of you in the MySQL world may have missed FAQ: Sun Certifications and Oracle-Branded Certificates from the Oracle Certification Blog. The synopsis is that anyone earning a MySQL certification before September 1st will be a SUN Certified MySQL {associate|DBA|Cluster DBA|Developer}. And starting September 1st you will be an ORACLE Certified MySQL {associate|DBA|Cluster DBA|Developer}. There is no need to replace your old certificates to get the Oracle branding and will continue to be recognized under the Oracle certification program and will be valid without expiration.

Want a new certificate anyway? Well, Oracle is planning an upgrade path in the future. Please see the linked article above for details.
