I completely forgot to post this, but yes, I did pass the certification :)
My next certification is complete: Google Cloud Certified Associate Cloud Engineer.
I did the exam Saturday, but only posting it now because it requires the results require verification by Google.
I passed (provisionally, at least)…
Whilst I was concerned about my scoring, I still passed. It scored 72%, with a pass mark of 66%
5 questions I could not answer, and one I could, but arguably that question was ambiguous
- Fix a broken cluster — kubelet was started but couldn’t connect to itself.
- Add node to cluster. Nodes do not have kubeadm installed.
- Static pod. Couldn’t find where the path was to put the manifests for the yaml.
4 and 5 I can’t remember the questions but will update if I remember
- Create a pod with a persistent volume, that isn’t persistent, and doesn’t tell you how big to make the PV. I used emptyDir, but that’s not really a PV (didn’t create a PV or a PVC)
I’ve totally forgotten to write this up, but I successfully passed my CKA exam on the third attempt with a 78% score, scraping a pass.
I’ll write up details of some of the questions I couldn’t answer so I can come back and look them up later.
Well, it was due to happen eventually, but I got an email saying my LPIC-1 certification is going to expire in 9 months, and I never got to finish LPIC-2.
Well, maybe I’ll redo it after I got my Kubernetes certifications
Finally while writing this post, I notice that WordPress is now removing Google+ support because Google are shutting it down. A pity really, since I did like Google+ and while it didn’t take off, a lot of the features were in G+ because general use, like Hangouts.
So I haven’t been posting here much recently so here are some updates.
Been slowing trying to get back into running, have been slacking off WAAAAY too much lately. Tried using Aaptiv (@aaptiv) which is a training fitness app that has trainers talking you through the stuff, there are a few problems with it.
- When you use a stretch/strength training routine or yoga routine, you’re reliant on them telling you what to do, there’s no video guide to show you the correct form, and that’s bad. Other apps like FitBit Coach has videos where you can copy the coach to make sure you have the right form.
- On Treadmill/Running routines, they talk in mph, but treadmills here in the UK go in km/h, which requires conversion (1.0 mph = 1.6 kph)
On a separate note, I have bought another attempt at the CKA exam, but this time bought the bundle with the Kubernetes Fundamentals Training from Linux Foundation. Let’s see how different that is to Linux Academy’s training….
