    Sometimes you just know the answer to a question before you even ask. This occasion proved true to that rule. Of course though, you know it was 'tongue in cheek'. Nice to have a bit of fun now and then, and this thread is just asking for some. I mean the title: "How many people have certification?"
    Leaves the field wide open.

    Can we have a Certificates repo?

    And one for mini-skirts?

    Don't bother about architectures, just a couple of bits would be nice

    CompTIA Linux+ .... not that I care much about it or other certs. Lots of companies like certs but it's just a paper to them. They want to see how you do in practice

    True, but often the applicant without a cert doesn't get the chance to show how shehe does in practice.

    But I did see once an impressive string of experience/achievements on a resume backed by a list of certs in the resume. The guy got the job, big job, high pay. I know for a fact that the resume was bogus, 80% fiction, 20% fact. So the lack of certs doesn't always make a barrier.

    I do - Novell CLP10, CLA10 (which comes with CLP10), CNA6, and the older
    CDE. I also hold LPIC-1.

    I'll probably get the new CLP11 as well when we release it, partly
    because I have to test the test (I'm the testing program manager at
    Novell these days) and partly just because.

    But that's also largely why I got the ones I got - just because. CDE was
    an objective when I was teaching eDirectory Advanced Technical Training
    courses, and LPIC-1 I got because my team consisted of identity and Linux
    practices (and I had the Linux background and my boss wanted me as a
    "switch-hitter" on the technologies), but the others were mostly because
    I could. I still intend to do my CLE10 exam as well at some point if I
    can find the time to study the materials a little bit.

    Cool....do you do any simulator work?

    I was studying to become an aeronautical engineer when I was in college,
    had to take a course in ATC after switching to Aviation Computer
    Science. Fascinating stuff.

    That does make a difference, doesn't it? I only got my certifications
    after Novell hired me, prior to that it was the same thing for me as for
    you, sounds like.
