Zend certification - First try... ;)
Zend is sponsoring the PHP Conference Quebec 2005 and forethat they offer free Zend Certification for visitors and speakers. Since it's free, I tried passing it (mostly for fun) without any kind of preperation (neither example exam, nor the certification guide). Would be cool if that worked, although it's been quite a challange in some way.
Nevertheless if I passed or not (ok, not passing would be a shame in someway, even without preperation...), it's really a good certification. There are many questions, which you cannot answer by learning from a book, but only with real programming experiences. Quite felicitous.
The only bummer is, that Daniel (the Zend guy here for administering the certification) had to let us do the exam on paper, which means that I will receive the result in about 2-4 weeks, when Daniel scanned and evaluated it. I'm really very curious on the result.
Hopefully I did not betrayal too much about the exam.
@Chris: You're a wimp, come on, just try taking the exam! ;)
