Here are some of the exciting things that happened or are
happening with LPI.
_____________LINUXWORLD BOOTH - SAN JOSE______________________
Our booth at the San Jose, California show (Linux World) was
busy! We had wonderful assistance from volunteers like; Ray
Ferrari, John Scroggins, and Robert Downey. Thanks guys for your
support and time at the booth.
We had a drawing for a VA Linux system, and some books, Tshirts,
fuzzy Elpiks (penguins with graduating cap and LPI shirt) and some
exam vouchers, it was quite exciting and everyone was involved and
having fun, and also learning a bit more about LPI.
Thanks to the sponsors who made this all happen: VA Linux
Systems, Turbolinux, SGI, Motorola, Linux Journal, Linuxcare, IBM,
Enhanced Software Tech. and Caldera.
If you are interested in purchasing one of the fuzzy Elpiks
above, from LinuxMall.com - please look at their web site at: http://www.LinuxMall.com/shop/02033
A portion of the proceeds goes to the Linux Professional
We are now able to report that exam 102 is out of beta, with
exam results being sent out within the next few days.
Due to some technical arrangements, anyone taking 102 after this
time will still get their results by snail mail - for the next few
weeks, but we are almost at the point of having live results when
the exam is taken! (More to come on that issue very soon!!!)
On the international front:
LPI Japan, is now official - we have a Japanese affiliate - we look
forward to working with LPI-Japan and would like to thank the many
companies and individuals who helped make this work.
Linuxcare (Asia Pacific Ops)
Fujitsu - Hitachi - NEC - Keio University - Tokyo Win Support -
Yokogawa engineering,Otuka shokai, 10Art Ni, Kanematso
There are many more affiliations - China and Australia for
example, who are anxious to have a more official arrangement with
To that end we are putting together an international mail list
and are asking for help to establish some guidelines for the
international community. If you are interested, please let us know
so that we can add you to our international list.
Due to the mountain of issues, ideas and discussion that came up
at the advisory council meeting in San Jose last month, it was
thought it would be a good idea to set up various mail lists to
discuss some of these ideas and issues:
1. Job Matrix - for evaluating where LPI certification would be
most valuable - in the work force.
2. Sponsorships - to help look for sponsors, and how we can be
of mutual assistance to each other.
3. Finance - to look at financing and budgets required for level
2 and 3.
4. Web based testing - to look at the possibility of doing
testing on non NT equipment.
If you are interested in any of the above mail lists, please let
me know - we need all the help we can find to ensure LPI remains
viable, and part of the Linux community as a whole.
