Armbian Certification

Recommended Posts

WHEN will I be able to take a course here, or series of courses here, and become a Certified Armbian Technician or Certified Armbian Engineer?

 

May sound odd, but seriously consider the ramifications ...

YOU are too freaking cool lol ...

 

But seriously, 'Armbian Certified SBC Technician' and 'Armbian Certified Engineer' sound like great certificates ... Would be worth 'round $200 or so for each step and I'd certainly pay it to go through the exercises set out by the Armbian gods. 

 

Would put a few bucks in the Armbian coffers ...

This smells like someone savvy with higher ed dollars and grant money :P

 

So in all seriousness, what would armbian certified look like to you.  What are the skills that one would be trying to master.  As a brainstorming here's some possibilities:
 

  • Using build system to build custom images and kernels
    • alternate kernel options
    • the user-patches framework
    • kernel patches
    • alternate system configurations
    • software preinstallaion
  • Understanding the SBC ecosystem
    • vendor culture
    • kernel fragmentation
    • u-boot fragmentation
    • Mainlining Initiatives
      • u-boot
      • kernel
  • Adding your own community support board to the ecosystem -- assuming you plan to continue to support it

If someone was to work with you on some exercises, would you be willing to distill down what was learned and contribute it back as meaningful documentation for the community?
