LPI's 10th Anniversary at LinuxTag Berlin

(Sacramento, CA, USA: May 28, 2009) The Linux Professional Institute (LPI), the world's premier Linux certification organization, announced a program of events and activities at LinuxTag, Berlin, Germany (June 24-27, 2009) in celebration of the organization's 10th anniversary. Events during the conference have been organized by LPI affiliate, LPI-Central Europe (http://www.lpice.eu) and feature an information booth, seminars, forums, training partner and affiliate meetings, the ever popular and traditional exam labs, and finally social events.  LPI is the LinuxTag Official Certification Partner for the conference and exposition.

"Our 10th Anniversary is an important milestone for LPI.  However, it is also an equally important event in the history of Linux and Open Source professionalism.  Ten years ago the founders of LPI set out on a course to develop a global standard in Linux professionalism that would ensure and nurture the world wide adoption and acceptance of Linux and Open
Source Software.  Without a doubt LPI has established a universal and accepted standard in vendor-neutral Linux certification for IT professionals.  Linux and Open Source Software is now increasingly the platform of choice amongst enterprise and governments around the world," said Jim Lacey, President and CEO of LPI.
