开源精英 济济一堂

红帽认证日在沪隆重召开

今天,全球领先的企业级开放源代码解决方案供应商红帽公司(Nasdaq:RHAT)与上海文华学院举办的“2006
红帽认证日”技术大会在上海隆重召开。活动吸引了数百名开源爱好者。这是红帽全球培训服务(Global Learning
Service)进入中国以来的首次高规格市场活动,将继往开来地推进中国开源人才的培养与交流。



来自红帽全球的高级技术人员、大中华区高层管理人员、Linux专家、全球500强Linux企业级用户和红帽认证考官出席了活动,并与众多红帽认证工程
师(RHCE),以及计划参与认证的技术人员进行了面对面的热烈讨论。探讨的话题涉及中国开源软件人才的培养、国内开源社区如何与国际开源社区接轨、
Linux技术发展趋势等。据介绍,上海只是“红帽认证日”的第一站,红帽还将在北京、台湾、香港陆续举办活动。



红帽在中国市场已经开设的培训课程包括:红帽认证技师RHCT、红帽认证工程师RHCE。在本次活动中,红帽还首次对外公布了红帽认证架构师(RHCA)
的培训及考试内容,并宣布RHCA的培训认证将于今年年中正式引入中国市场。RHCA
是Linux领域最新最高端的大师级认证,目前全球仅有13名。从RHCE到RHCA逐级提升,可满足不同知识背景人员的不同需求。



红帽全球培训服务在2005年11月正式推向中国市场,为用户提供一系列在真实应用环境下进行的培训课程,并且针对中国用户,设计了中文的免费在线等级测
试评估,以帮助希望参加培训的客户了解自身技能掌握情况并选择合适的课程。自2月1日在线评估正式上线以来,已吸引了近千人参与测试,从侧面反映了国内
Linux人员对红帽认证的迫切需要。国际独立调查机构将RHCE认证列为排名第一的IT认证项目。目前全球已有超过15000名RHCE,但在中国市场
只有450余人。



红帽公司大中华区总经理陈实先生对红帽全球培训服务的前景、中国开源人才的培养充满期望,他在活动现场表示:“缺乏充足和高端的Linux技术人员,是开
源软件发展的主要障碍之一。红帽作为行业的领先厂商,将积极地促进开源人才的培养,这将是红帽在中国战略的重要内容。”
