Bob Brandt – No Certification to LPI-300 in two weeks!
Bob Brandt works as a consultant for a number of large companies but his main client is an Irish Government department. Bob builds, develops and maintains most of their infrastructure – an infrastructure that consists of Microsoft, Unix and Linux (primarily SuSE and Ubuntu but also RedHat and various Debian distributions). The tender for his primary job was unexpectedly up for renewal. As the tender was unexpected, the tender process was greatly shortened.
