The RHCDS of Egypt

FOSSology - Sun, 02/08/2009 - 2:28pm

On the 10th of July I had the last exam on the RHCDS track, it was the EX401; I passed this exam with 100 out of 100 in both sections. The exam was great.

I was trying to get the EX401 as soon as possible; because this would entitle me to be the first Egyptian who get the RHCDS. Yes I did it and I am the first one.

Since Redhat doesn't have RHCA exams/courses available in the middle east; I had to travel overseas for those three courses and exams.
