Today, was the first day of my C programming course. I only have 2 classes this semester because I want to knock out the RHCSA/CE during the holidays or sometime in January.
Side note: Did you know Visual Studio 2012 is a free download from Microsoft? http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30682
I found out through my class Syllabus. This course requires an IDE with an ANSI C compiler, so the Professor suggested Visual Studio.
My next goal is to become certified as a RedHat System Administrator (RHCSA) AND RedHat Certified Engineer (RHCE). These tests are completely hands on, so no more simulation only questions. Going by the information I’ve been reading, I am allotting myself until January to sit for both tests. Did I mention these exams are $400 each? I can not afford to fail… LOL.
Lets get to it!
Today I received my A.S. in Information Technology.
Next degree -> B.S. in I.T.
Today passed the SY0-301 exam. Now I have my Security+ ce certification. This completes my the initial trio of certifications I wanted to have before summer. 🙂
Today passed the N10-005 exam. Now I have my Network+ ce certification. 🙂
On Monday, I passed the LX0-101.
Today passed the LX0-102 completing my Linux+ certification. I can fly this banner proudly now.
After years of solely working on the internet, I’ve decided to switch gears. I have always been impressed by the server admins that I work with (remotely). Any problem that came up, a solution was never far away. I learned quite a bit about server maintenance from them, but I lacked the formal training. Shortly, before the Christmas holidays I decided to going back to school, to major in Information Technology. I am especially interested in the Security side of I.T.
First day of class is Jan. 7th.
