Please find my complete interview with IT Certification Master: Why Network, Skill, Experience Matters Most. Thank you to Mirek Burnejko for the opportunity.
And below is the last question from the interview:
MB: You are also a co-founder of several organizations: GEM
Foundation, Jawdat Teknologi Indonesia and CCIE93. Can you describe us
these new ventures?
HN: This is my problem: there are 250 million people in Indonesia,
and there are only less than 200 CCIEs. I’m planning to solve that
problem. And it doesn’t mean I will make everyone from my country as
CCIE. Nor I will teach CCIE class. I want to do more. I want to help
Indonesian students and young professionals to become globally
competitive professionals. So they can compete in global market like me,
or stay in Indonesia to work on challenging project currently being
done by professionals from outside the country (expats). And the
solution must be scalable. That’s why I founded a not-for-profit
organization GEM Foundation (GEMFo) early last year with several other
Indonesian professionals who work outside the country. I spent my
personal time to visit schools and universities to share global view
from my own experience working abroad for more than 10 years. Six months
ago I founded Jawdat Teknologi Indonesia as the engine to generate
revenue to support GEMFo activities. We want to create cafe incubator,
scholarship program, community lab and library, and so much more.
I created CCIE93 to help CCIE
candidates to prepare and pass CCIE lab (currently only for R&S
track) in 93 days. Using mobile learning platform that my team
developed, candidates can learn “anytime, anywhere”, “learn at your own
pace”, “video oriented”, “learn one thing a day” with group of CCIEs as
mentors. Basically there are 93 modules to learn in 93 days, and if the
candidate can finish the tasks on that module/day then he can move on to
the next module/day.
Currently it’s only for Indonesian, but I’m thinking to
release it for international audience soon. The objective is to generate
more fund so I can build IOS XR and Nexus lab in Indonesia for the
community. Watch this space.
Are you ready?
