Kick-starting the new year with OpenShift.
EX280 Exam Experience
I took an individual exam that was based on OpenShift 3.9.
It was, hands down, the Red Hat exam I enjoyed the most. The container technology provided by Docker is fascinating, with OpenShift you can go from
git push to a running application in a few minutes.
While Ansible-based OpenShift 3 installation is not part of the exam objectives, if you are familiar with Ansible, it will help you during the exam. At least I feel like EX407 experience came in handy.
EX280 is a 3-hour exam, if it was up to me, I’d probably make it a bit longer, simply because there is a lot of documentation available for OpenShift. There are things that I have to look up no matter how often I use them (e.g. limit range object definition), and it takes time.
The exam score 300/300.
I took my time with this one and spent several months using Minishift, configuring storage servers and deploying internal registries, building Docker images, testing S2I using simple code and various examples available on GitHub. I also used Kubernetes on AWS.
I’ve done 40+ lab hours on RHLS including the DO180 course.
