Tips for passing Red Hat Certification exams

Red Hat Certified Architect program changes

Red Hat Certified Architect is the highest level of certification Red Hat offers.  We are making some changes to the program and the way that we position it to help IT organizations and professionals worldwide better understand the program and what it means to be an RHCA.

For years, in order to earn RHCA you first had to earn Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE.)  As the Red Hat product portfolio expanded into middleware, we expanded the program to provide a path to RHCA for developers who have earned either Red Hat Certified Enterprise Microservices Developer (RHCEMD) or Red Hat Certified JBoss Developer (RHCJD.)

2013 Red Hat Certified Professional of the Year

by Rafael Guimarães, 2013 Red Hat Certified Professional of the Year

Since the day Red Hat asked me to write down some lines for this blog, I have been wondering what should I write about. At first, I though I should write about my future perspectives and which certifications I still wanna pursue, but then I realized that possibly no one would be interested on that. So, I decided to write a few lines about how I decided to share my story with Red Hat for the 2013 RHCP of the Year contest. Maybe that could make other RHCPs like me more excited to do the same.

Well, everything begun when I received an email from Red Hat advertising the 2013 RHCP of the Year contest. At first it seemed to me like one of these contests that I would have no chance at all. Why would someone choose my story over several others all over the world? Luckily I was on vacation, with a free agenda, and I decided to spend some time writing for the contest. Why not? Spending one hour on this wouldn’t hurt me. So I did it and, after sending my contribution, I totally forgot about the subject, after all, I had absolutely no chance.
