Want to beef up your resume and show the world that you’re on top of your OpenStack game? Want to do it for free? At OpenStack Summit Portland[1] this month we’ll offer free Rackspace Certified Technician for OpenStack[2] exams – a $200 value.

Each evening after the Summit, a limited number people can receive a free Rackspace Certification for OpenStack exam. There are no reservations and the slots will be given on a first come, first served basis – we anticipate a high demand, so be sure to show up early to guarantee a spot.

By passing the exam, you’ll become a Rackspace Certified Technician for OpenStack, our entry-level certification. The two-hour, timed exam is hands-on and carried out at the command line. There is no access to the Internet required to complete the exam and exam-takers must have the know-how to interact with OpenStack and its various features. This exam will be based on the OpenStack Folsom release.

We’ll host the exam each night of the OpenStack Summit (Monday, April 15 through Thursday, April 18) in the Director’s Suite on the third floor of the Hilton Portland & Executive Tower. The exam will run from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., and an OpenStack Summit Portland badge must be presented prior to taking the test.
