Well Friday was supposed to be my day to go take the Sun Certified Java Associate Beta Exam. I was looking forward to checking it out and also being able to provide constructive feedback to the test designers. Unfortunately Hurricane Dennis had other plans for my testing experience.
I received a phone call today from the Triangle of Technology Prometric Testing Center in Pensacola, FL (closest place to Mobile, AL that offers the Sun tests) saying their power was still not restored (and might be back by Tuesday) so I would have to reschedule. Only one problem with rescheduling….the beta exam period ends tomorrow.
Oh well, hopefully the test designers can get by without my input.
So to cheer myself up I went ahead and signed up for the Sun Certified Java Developer exam (been meaning to but was waiting on the Associate exam to pass first) using my handy dandy discount voucher I received for participating in the Certified Programmer beta exam.
Sun very quickly processed my submission and sent me the link for the application. So I have downloaded it and hopefully will get started this weekend. For those that are interested I received the B&S application.
I promise I’m still going to write up more about JavaOne 2005. Hopefully this weekend.
Also something I just saw. The SD West 2006 Call for Papers is up. I’ll have to put together a submission for this one and see if I can get accepted.
