Hi folks, I posted the following in the SCEA Forum, but in hindsight its probably more appropriate for this one.
If my understanding of the exam signup page is correct, then the first 400 developers to sit and pass the exam will get the certification? So if youre the 401st person to pass the exam tough luck. This poses the question whether there will be quotas by time zone? Consider that the earliest you can sit the exam is June 6th. So to stand the best chance being the one of the first 400 you would have to register and sit the exam on the 6th. If thats the case and as other countries in other timezones hit the 6th first ie (New Zealand, China, Austrailia, India), Sun could have their first 400 passes before developers in other countries such as the UK/US/Canada have even woke up to sit the exam!
Of course this is dependent on how many people have signed up for the beta already but do you know if the 400 testers will be selected from different timezones? Thanks, Mark
