Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty, and persistence. - Colin Powell

Java Advanced certificate

I did it :)

Just before O’Reilly School of Technology (OST) closes, I managed to get certified in Advanced Java, more details here (java5 and -6).

I am pretty happy and proud of this achievement. The two modules were known to be the most complex ones the school had to offer and some exercises were a real struggle, but hey … that’s how you learn, right? I got some good practice in distributed app development and algorithms (30 coding projects).

I copied the (already publicly available) course PDFs to my certifications page if interested.

For those interested in algorithms:

  • The author of the algorithms part of this certificate has a good video course where he goes over a lot of the same material using Python.
  • Coursera just kicked off Algorithms, part I (Princeton).
