Changes to Several Red Hat Certification Titles

The names we use for certifications are important.  They should communicate clearly what they represent someone can do and how they relate to one another.  Three years ago we made some policy and structure changes to provide more flexibility and choices for people participating in the certification program.  We are now making another choice to make Red Hat Certification a better tool for IT professionals and for organizations that use Red Hat technologies.

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.
