An Architectural Symphony of Redhat certifications: ipsr in the mirth of 5th RHCA

Following the stars the three kings reached Bethlehem to adore the new born baby in the manger. And that it is the season of lights and jingle bells to light our hearts with hope, peace and joy that Christmas brings.

By following ipsr Mr Bimal Roy Mehta, Director of Trail Blazers, Kolkata could reach the heights of RHCA the pinnacle of Redhat certification. Enjoying the cakes of Christmas Mr Bimal Roy Mehta enjoys the most delicious cake that IT industry could serve. This achievement makes him an exclusive and distinctive Architect in Redhat empowered technologies. Mr. Bimal Roy reached ipsr to master the level of competence in RH401, RH436, RH442. It is this realization to move in the radiance of ipsrian spell took him to the throne of RHCA.

Both Mr. Bimal and the entire ipsrian crew were excited at this big win. Here are the words of Bimal Roy about his experience at ipsr.
"A home away from home! That’s how I would sum up my RHCA training experience at IPSR, Kochi. From the very inception, the management and staff went out of their way to assure that my sojourn in Kochi was pleasant and comfortable in every way. The accommodation facilities suggested by Benila Madam were all fit and proper and economical, and she was also particular to enquire at all times whether I was really enjoying my stay in Kochi in all respects.
A few words about the Kochi city itself. There is an old world charm about the city with its quiet, laid back lifestyle. There is some indefinable quality – I don’t know what – but I would love to visit Kochi again and again for one reason or another. Everywhere, I came across very warm, friendly, courteous, modest, unassuming people. The churches, mosques, all the old monuments, and beaches are so picturesque. The city has also rich cultural traditions and a rich, vibrant life style – there is a quaint blend of the old and the new. A visit to the Penta Menaka Complex is a must for all electronics enthusiasts as also the spice markets which are just behind the Penta Menaka. I was able to collect good souvenirs for my friends from these markets. Owing to my busy schedules, I couldn’t find the time to explore the city in much detail, but the little that I saw left an indelible mark on my mind. And the food there with its unique fusion of Kerala and Arabic styles is something one has to experience to be able to appreciate.
Honestly, when I set out on my RHCA journey about a year back, I had a fair amount of qualms and misgivings as to how it would all turn out, considering the hefty sum I was to spend for doing the three RHCA modules, travelling all the way from Kolkata. Self-appointed advisors had chorused that all my money would go down the drain as one can never imbibe and assimilate properly via such short term courses where the instructors simply go through the motions, treating the subject matter in a very superficial and perfunctory manner. But, how wrong they were ! Not only I, but any other candidate of our batches, would readily attest to the very thorough and painstakingly perfect manner in which all the three modules were covered by our instructor, Shri Sreejith Anujam. Here was a man who not only really knew what he was talking about but was equally keen to ensure that every student did actually absorb everything he had to deliver and get their money’s worth. Our lab practice sessions always went far beyond the normal stipulated closure hours and the IPSR staff was always kind enough to extend our class timings to the extent that we might require completing our lab assignments. Needless to say, all the machines and lab equipment were measuring up to the most exacting standards. Besides, this we always availed extra practice sessions prior to exam dates, thanks again to the co-operation from IPSR staff. With their multifarious training courses going on all the time, it was not exactly an easy thing to provide extra practice lab-sessions ahead of our exams as per wishes, but our wishes were somehow accommodated most of the times. Not much time was lost even during lunch-breaks, as the choicest dishes as per our desire were delivered right into our classrooms by IPSR staff from famous eateries like the Food Court and Dominoes.
All in all, it was an unforgettable experience. For anyone intending to RHCA courses, I can think of no better place in India – and I have seen quite a many of them !"

Entire ipsrian family would cherish every moment with Mr Bimal Roy and is honored by his achievement. This reflection will remain a lasting inspiration and we register a hearty congrats to this majestic achievement.

In the rings with Apple iOS 6 and Antroid 4.1 Jelly bean

Here the rings are not the boxing platform but the arena of apps, games and other digital contents and the title is to become Smart, Smatter and the Smartest, omg!!!….and now the battle is on to own the crown of the smartest.

The scenario of smart phone OS technology during the past few years witnessed a tech race to win the supremacy of the smartest icon. Android and the Apple iOS the twin Ace of the lot is entangled in a never ending battle to claim the chair. When google launched the latest version of Antroid operating system code Jelly bean to power the hundreds of millions of end users, Apple countered it with the latest iOS 6 to neutralize the hype of Jelly Bean. The dependence of Apple on Google applications like google Maps and others has been defied in new release of  iOS 6 by integrating self sustaining features like Apple maps etc.

 When punches and counterpunches dominate the rings it feels essential for a tech lover to watch out who hit a Bolo punch and who knocks out of the bout. Here for a better appreciation and evaluation of the strengths and weakness of the two tech giants an interrogation into their features are designed

Smart Widgets a straight punch

Android 4.1 introduces improved App Widgets that can automatically resize, based on where the user drops them on the home screen, the size to which the user expands them, and the amount of room available on the home screen. This new feature of responsive widget helps the user to manage the home screen space by dragging and dropping widgets where all the other icons and widgets will make space for them,
. Apple has not embraced widgets in iOS, and while Microsoft has created customizable "live tiles" for Windows Phone, they are still static boxes tied to a single home screen. Android's widgets are now smarter and will be easier to integrate on an Android's variety of home screens. 

Additions to Google Beam a Jab punch

In Android 4.1, Android Beam makes it easier to share images, videos, or other payloads by leveraging Bluetooth for the data transfer. When the user triggers a transfer, Android Beam hands over from NFC to Bluetooth, making it really easy to manage the transfer of a file from one device to another.
Google continues to lead on NFC smartphone integration. With two new Beam features, Android Jelly Bean is way ahead of the competition when it comes to NFC. For instance, this is the first time we have seen NFC connect devices over a wireless connection with the ability to tap your phone to a Bluetooth device.

New Google Voice Search a hook punch

Google voice search… looks like Apple's Siri but could ultimately be more robust. Apple ties its search results to particular databases and search engines like Wolfram Alpha or Yelp. Google voice search in Android ties it to the company's robust search engine. Add responsive voice feedback and the new card-based interface, and mobile search is taking a step ahead.

New "Platform Developer Kit" a straight right hand punch

The "Platform Developer Kit" is a really smart move by Google considering its large manufacturer and partner base. You don't often think of hardware as something that can be "opened," but the ability to institute the very basic aspects of Android with one simple kit will make it much easier for hardware companies to start building on new versions of the platform.

Smart App updates an upper cut punch

Smart app updates is a new feature of Google Play that introduces a better way of delivering app updates to devices. When developers publish an update, Google Play now delivers only the bits that have changed to devices, rather than the entire APK. This makes the updates much lighter-weight in most cases, so they are faster to download, save the device’s battery, and conserve bandwidth usage on users’ mobile data plan. On average, a smart app update is about 1/3 the size of a full APK update.

Rich Push Notifications a rabbit punch

Android 4.1 brings a major update to the Android notifications framework. Apps can now display larger, richer notifications to users that can be expanded and collapsed with a pinch. Notifications support new types of content, including photos, have configurable priority, and can even include multiple actions.
Google has long been ahead in push notifications with Android. Even Apple has had to catch up, with the prime example being how Apple created a drop-down menu for notifications in iOS 5 last year. Google has now taken that a step further by not just making notifications easy to develop for, but also integrating rich media into the drop-down menu. There are some things that iOS, BlackBerry or Windows Phone do better than Android. When it comes to notifications, Android will continue to lead the way.

Google Maps vs Apple Maps a combination punch

Google’s turn-by-turn navigation is better even though Jelly Bean pushes it to a separate app, Google just recently revamped their Maps to include 3D mapping and offline maps. The offline maps are a killer feature, they are useful when you have no service, Offline Maps, transit, and walking directions give Google a point in this category, Apple has a long way to go if it wants Maps to be on par with Google, When we first found out Apple was developing its own Maps app, we were excited, Then we actually saw the maps, and we were completely underwhelmed, Apple’s Maps don’t include walking directions or transit directions and that’s a big let down for a lot of users…

As the ring continues to be active

As of now Jelly Bean and iOS 6 are both great mobile operating systems and they’re both improvable, It is wise not to expect the outcome to end up like it did, Overall Google’s Android OS is much more robust and feature packed than Apple’s, Apple has polished its operating system and added a lot of nifty features.
So Let the ring continue to be active as, what we have seen is nothing when compared to what we ought to see and let us keep enjoying all great features that suits us the best…
