Up for a challenge? Here's the OpenStack Essentials quiz!
Submitted by florian on Mon, 2013-06-24 12:02
Novice, hotshot, expert or wizard? Show off your OpenStack knowledge in this brand new quiz.
We've added some brand new interactive content on our site. The OpenStack Essentials quiz is a challenging, fun way for you to test your OpenStack knowledge. We've launched it today, and you should totally take a look and check it out — it takes no more than 30 minutes, or maybe even just 10 if you're super awesome.
The quiz is a set of 60 questions randomly selected from a pool of more than 300, and every taker gets a different set. Questions are multiple-choice, true/false, and matching, and you get 30 minutes for all of them. Yes, that's only 30 seconds per question, so while you can (and should!) use all OpenStack documentation resources you can find, you probably won't complete the quiz in the alotted time if you need to look up the answer to every question.
We've labeled the quiz OpenStack Essentials because we believe it covers the most essential topics related to building and maintaining an OpenStack compute cloud. That means it includes questions related to
- OpenStack infrastructure services,
- Networking (formerly Quantum, now Neutron),
- Cinder, and
We've deliberately left out Swift, Ceilometer and Heat for now. Why? Well, without giving too much away, let's just say there's more quiz fun in your future.
And did I mention that depending on how you fare, there may be a kitten or a puppy in the quiz for you? Well, you'll just have to give it a shot. So head over to the quiz page and get cracking!
By the way, you'll have to be logged in to take the quiz. If you don't have an account on our site yet, just head over here to grab one. Or use any OpenID identity (like your Google account or your Launchpad identity) to log in.
Have fun, and quiz away!
