I am not sure this is the best location for this, but since this deals with certification test results and the earned badges, I created it here. Please move if needed.
I just received my CLED. The CLED badge on Acclaim came shortly after.
My point for this discussion: I am a bit dismayed that the CLD and CLED badges are very similar and easily mistaken for each other if one does not have knowledge of the badge colors, and sub-colors of the Add function in the badge.
I have my badges in my signature line - trying out this pilot program, etc. and had someone ask why I would list a CLD with my CLA. As Associate Developer is two words, why could the CLED badge not be Embedded Developer to further differentiate?
I did send a note to the Certification dept. via email raising this same concern - anyone care to discuss?
Solved! Go to Solution.
When I first saw the badges at NIWeek I thought they had actually put the developer badge on the poster twice by accident so I would agree that it isn't very clear. My first thought was to use the FPGA icon in place of the LabVIEW one but I like your idea of the badge saying Embedded Developer better.
I do know one person who worked on the badges so I'll point them to this post.
Thanks for the discussion and pointing someone here. My coworkers and I thought maybe using the "pink" color from an FPGA IO Node for the color, or an FPGA icon instead of the Add would be alternatives too. I thought - keep it simple - it is LabVIEW RT and FPGA, so the yellow squares work for me, then I looked at the chart on Acclaim and saw the Associate Developer badge and decided to suggest Embedded be added.
