linux developer certification


Hi,
I am a computer science undergrad.student and would like to add a linuux certification to my armour. But i am not that interested in linux admin. But more in development. Is there any certification course on linux by anyone LPI,Redhat,SUSE,IBM etc.
Or which of the existing certification courses will be best suited for a developer ???

What kind of development? If you're doing Java, there's the Java certification stuff from Sun, but that's not specifically Linux. Red hat has courses for developers. I don't think there are certs associated with them, but completing one or more might set your resume apart from the pack.

In the end, though, you may not need to worry too much about it. I was in CS and I knew people, myself included, who got great Linux-oriented jobs with no certifications at all.

Hi,
mm_mohit the free rhce is actually the cource books,study guide of a seniour...who says he'll teach me the requisites!!!!! The exam ie RHCE is a paid exam and there is no escape from that!!!!

Anyways as eng.student due think RHCE is of use esp. for a developer kinda guy and NOT exactly a syst.admin ????

Wink

dude i am also as in the same state as you..........3rd yr engg..........
Nothing BIG in learning linux, its just a bit aprehencive for ppl who come out of windows. I felt the same way!!! If ur serious you can find hell lot of tutorials for kernel prog etc. on the web(Google.com/linux is the best option). Plz let it soak in.....nothing big or small here

My coll. also enforces windows, but i got a pc and its penguin powered . So jus chill, linux is ezy for any engg.student due to their background.
