Finally, the CompTIA Linux+ beta embargo has lifted! I can post the comparison I made of the objectives between XK-004 and 005!

Passed the CKA exam

2022-05-08 09:19:00

It's been a very long time in coming, but I finally passed my CKA (Certified Kubernetes Admin) exam yesterday. 

When I say "a long time", I mean that this path of studying started back in August 2021 right after finishing teaching group 41 at IT Vitae. Back then, I started out on the Docker learning path at KodeKloud, to get more familiar with containerization in general. I'd considered going for the DCA exam, but comparing it to CKA I reconsidered and added a lot more studytime to just hop onward to Kubernetes.

I can not say enough positive things about KodeKloud. The team has put a lot of effort into making great educational content, as well as solid lab environments. The cost-value comparison for KodeKloud is excellent! I plan on finishing their DCA content later this year, so I can then turn to RedHat's EX180 (Docker/Podman and OpenShift) exam.

Aside from KodeKloud's training materials, the practice exams at Killer.sh were great. You get two free practice exams as part of your CKA exam voucher and I earned a third run by submitting some bug reports. 

Again, the value for money at killer.sh is great: in-depth exercises, a stable testing environment and a exam setup that properly prepares you for the online CKA testing environment. 

Finally, the actual exam: registration was an okay process, signing in with the proctor went excellent and the exam itself worked fine as well. I did learn that Linux Foundation are very strict about the name put on your registration. I put in "T.F. Sluijter-Stek" because legally that is my identity, but they actually wanted "${FirstName} ${LastName}" so for me my "${DeadName} ${MaidenName}". Oh well; no biggy. The proctor was very patient while I went and updated my name on the portal. 

So to summarize:
