Hi Liz,

Excuse me for disturbing you again and asking about the beta testing and
general availability of the CKA exam but it's quite important for us! Is
it still realistic that the CKA beta testing happens in July and general
availability in August?

There are 2 important reasons to be interested in the schedule:

 1. We are a gold sponsor of the Openstack UK Day 2017 in London on 26.
    September (https://openstackdays.uk/2017/?page_id=781) and our
    sponsor talk will be about available open cloud certifications
    (Openstack, Docker, Kubernetes, maybe also Openshift and Cloud
    Foundry), their features and ways of preparation.
 2. We'd like to heavily market a bundle of our Kubernetes Admin
    training (https://www.componentsoft.eu/?p=3889) and the CKA exam in
    Europe from September.

Best regards,
