As a result of some poking around in http://www.cmsmatrix.org/ CMS Matrix , it http://plonemetrics.blogspot.com/2009/01/cms-matrix-part-three.html appeared to me that a Plone certification program overseen by the Foundation might be of value.
Googling for "plone certification" over the past year turned up 14,200 results including Ofer Weisglass's early inquiry into the matter and a http://plone.org/foundation/meetings/minutes/minutes-april-3-2008-1/ 3 April Board decision to unanimously deny a combined use of Plone trademarks for a technical certification exam and promotion of a proposed documentary. I realize that often certifications are looked down upon by the OS community or, worse, used as a tool to merely "check the box" by unscrupulous consultants. Also, there are numerous alternative certifications out there that cover much of the ground that a Certified Plone Professional would have without the effort of managing such a program ourselves. (Happily, I see that the http://www.iai.hm.edu/how-to-implement-ifc/certification Implementer Support Group for the International Alliance for Interoperability certification program uses Plone for its site.) Your thoughts, please. -- View this message in context: http://n2.nabble.com/Plone-Certification-tp2104549p2104549.html Sent from the Evangelism mailing list archive at Nabble.com. _______________________________________________ Evangelism mailing list Evangelism@lists.plone.org http://lists.plone.org/mailman/listinfo/evangelism
