Subject [IDEA] ASF "Certifications"
Date Fri, 20 Feb 2015 20:26:37 GMT
Hi apache. Just had a thought.

*** Should/Could the ASF  have its own project managed develoepr
certification program (for "industry professionals") ? ***

In apache projects, like hadoop, for example, we see lots of certifications
come up, which are mostly a bunch of multiple choice questions, or a way to
get you to take their class, and so on.

- After all, we already have people qualified to be mentors, so nobody
would dispute the distinction of such a certification.

- I see alot of companies doing these certifications for apache projects
(i.e. like hadoop for example, but there are others).  The programs seem to
be valuable both to consumers (learn new skills) and to companies (Spread
mindshare) alike.

*** example ***
On Apache BigTop, I think we could design a great big data certification,
which would help grow the project, increase commitership, and also increase
the back flow of collaboration from companies as well.  I think alot of
other projects (for example, even the Apache HTTP server, Derby, CTakes,
and so on).
