I have tried the default ubuntu video player as well but with no luck!
I have downloaded the video more than once, with GChrome and Firefox, but I receive the same error on playback!
But I went forward and downloaded the second video from webinars: "Getting Started with Qt/C++ Programming" and It worked very fine with the same VLC player.
Just passed the essentials exam, but no, Digia didn't change the rules. You will not get the answers or questions to check what you did wrong. Just a pass/fail, that's it.
If you have about a year of experience and tried all the basic stuff in Qt (don't forget to try the QPainter, couple of questions there) you'll make it.
[quote author="Katherine " date="1348318837"]Hi Elena, sorry about the missing pages. We are collecting all the info from the old qt.nokia.com and bringing on to qt.digia.com. It's a lot of info with not too many hands yet available. These materials will be up soon! smiles[/quote]
Currently there are 3 exams for Qt4 (Essentials, C++, Widget).
Will Digia create new exam(s) for Qt4 (or maybe later for Qt5)?
Is there a plan for this?
I agree with Andre and utcenter. If you only know enough to narrowly pass a certification test then it doesn't really prove you know anything but how to pass a test. The entire point of certification is to certify that you have an certain level of knowledge in a given topic. If you learn Qt, and practice developing with it, then you will easily pass the exam. If you can't pass the exam, then you haven't the knowledge you need to be certified.
So, in short: use the videos, use the books, use the forums, use the documentation... and code, code, code.
As disappointing as this may sound, but I do think the problem is on the part of the companies you apply to, not on yours. All certificates contain your name, a candidate id and a certificate id which can be for sure used to manually verify your certificate asking PearsonVue or Nokia - if the companies wanted to do that in the first place.
