JCertif 2010 is coming Blog

Posted by bonbhel May 16, 2010
As you know, CongoJUG is  involved in education. Once again, we will offer free courses and workshops for  Sun Java Certification.
JCertif is a mini-conference that will focus on  Java technology professional certifications, with special attention to SCJP  (Java Programmer) and SCWCD (Web Component Developer).
JCertif goal : To provide courses  and workshop which will help people to learn the basics of Java programming  language and all its secrets.
Following these workshops, attendees will have  all the knowledge required to pass a Sun Java Certification Exam, all of that in  4 certification days in August.
Why Java Certification  ? In  Congo's employement market, sometimes a technology certification could look more  competitive than college degrees.
We will organize a mock exam contest and award one  (1) Exam VOUCHER to the participant with the highest score.
In Congo the  voucher cost (300$) could represente 4 months salary and it's just astronomical  for a lot of people (students, unemployed...).
We are talking with local sponsors but the lack of sponsors is still a big  issue in our region.
What do we need right at this moment?
    • Sponsors
    • Free or Promotion codes for Java tests (vouchers)
    • SCJP Books (French)
    • Giveaways
The mini-conference will take place in Brazzaville, Congo (Africa) on August 26-29.  Schedule
    is available under
Hope you guys will help out!
