The ColdFusion Summit is a confluence of everything in the realm of web applications. If you develop web applications, this is the place to be. For designers, developers, strategists and thought leaders, the ColdFusion Summit provides the perfect forum to exchange ideas, inspiration and experiences.
Be there and learn from the experts!
The Mirage, Las Vegas it is on Oct 1 and 2, 2019.
So are you saying that they should not offer it at the Summit AT ALL? Why not? Or do you mean that they should offer it ALSO separately? The second point would be reasonable. The first seems not. Why shouldn't people willing to go to the Summit a day early be able to do that?
Assuming you meant more the second point, I suspect a challenge is that currently the program expects people to spend a day in live training AND to have a live proctored exam. Both of those may be expensive (if not difficult) to arrange for folks to do SEPARATE from the Summit. (And I don't speak for them, but based on what I have heard.)
But now do you see why I was asking for your clarification? I am left to guess why you think it's "improper" to "couple" the cert program with the Summit. I just think you could make your argument (or concern or assertion) more clear to Adobe if you would be more specific. Otherwise, it just comes off as merely contrarian. 🙂
