Certified Scrum Master

image Apr 6, 2010 – I finished my Certified Scrum Master Training. I took the Online test 2 days later. And Now I am officially Certified by Scrum Alliance. (Alright, people – Hire me :))

ScrumAlliance has a unique (rather beatable) way of handling how the authenticity of who is getting certified. They give you a membership ID. You are given a profile page that is public on their site (is this getting a public-private key mechanism. wait a min). You can add your photo and Have the interested parties download your certificate from their site.

My profile is available here

Download my Certificate here

And then the site also has an *Authentic* way of sending mails from their site on my behalf. I choose to *share* my certificate and they simply send the person of interest the following mail. Only problem : The email itself is not showing my certification logo :).

In the interest of open knowledge, I will accumulate resources going forward. Please find it in the new label scrum

Appcache manifest file issues/caveats

Application cache (appcache) is a powerful feature in HTML5. However, it does come with baggage. Many (see links below) advocated ferociously against it due to tricky issues it comes with. For someone who is just testing waters, these issues may throw them off grid. Knowing them before hand helps reduce some unpredictable effects.

Being a Vegetarian

I am a Proud Vegetarian. I don't eat Meat or Eggs. People say its hard here in US to be one. I beg to differ. The mere fact that I am hail and healthy these 4 years is a definitive proof. Apart from being bullied and trash talked by The Meat-Eaters, There is really nothing that makes this choice of mine any more than a debatable issue at a lunch or dinner. Other things aside, I am writing this blog having watched a PETA Video. Before you click on the play button, I ask you - If you are a vegetarian : Dont watch it. If you are not : Dare to watch it till the end. If you think going veg is just a fashion, think again . Even if you just want to do it for Fashion . Do it. Go Vegetarian. And Feel better asking the waiter for a Vegetarian Entrée in your next lunch.

classpath*: making your Modular Spring Resources

Spring gives multiple options to load XML resources for building contexts. the reference documentation does explain this feature quite well. However, I am taking my shot at explaining the different practical scenarios ( by order of growing modularisation) For Example, A simplest Spring based web Context Loader can be configured with resources like this <context-param> <param-name>contextConfigLocation</param-name> <param-value>applicationContext.xml</param-value> </context-param> <listener> <listener-class>org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoaderListener</listener-class> </listener> You just need to put applicationContext.xml in WEB-INF/ folder of your webapp. However, Typically an application is n-tiered. You can also have multiple files setup and in relative paths. like <param-value> context-files/applicationContext.xml context-files/dao.xml context-files/service.xml </param-value>
