I'm pleased to announce that the BSDA exam has finished its beta process
and the psychometrician is setting the final format. This means the exam
is almost "live".
For 2008, the exam will be offered at technical conferences across the
globe, in English only, and paper-based. This will provide the time needed
to finish developing and testing the software based exam delivery system
as well as plan for translated versions of the exam.
SCALE in Los Angeles, FOSDEM in Brussels, and Linux-Tage in Chemnitz have
already confirmed that the BSDA will be made available. We are working with
the organizers for LinuxTag in Berlin, BSDCan in Ottawa, and NYCBSDCon in
NYC to offer the exam at those conferences. If you're aware of any other
conferences in your geographic area where you'd like to take the exam,
mention it on the list and we'll try to contact the organizers and
arrange for a proctor.
