What it truly means to be an Intel Black Belt Developer "ninja"
#1
So ya, since CP loves to paste everywhere that he's an Intel Black Belt like it's some meaningful accomplishment, I decided to finally look up what's required to become one. All the information can be found here: https://software.intel.com/en-us/blackbelt


Basically, you need to join the Intel Developer Zone forum community and post stuff. That's it:

   



You move up the ranks in the forum community by collecting points, becoming more and more "esteemed" as you receive your green, brown, red, and black belts:

   



So how do you achieve these points, you might ask. Surely you HAVE TO be a coder and provide legitimate software fixes? Well, here you are:

   

As of this point, 2 years later, we haven't seen a single line of legitimate code that CP has written, modified, or improved himself. Knowing he's quite adept at bending the English language and blogging, he could collect just as many points for doing those things. I am willing to wager that he failed to provide a single code sample during his entire time on the forums.



Tell me more Mary's Goats. What do you receive on your way through the dojo towards a black belt? Trips to conventions? Working with talented developers? Even better:

   



And finally, what do you get by being an Intel Black Belt Software Developer?

   



So there you have it, the Intel Black Belt Developer process. A glorified forum member who doesn't necessarily have to submit any code at all. You just have to know technical "stuff."

Incidentally, did Price go to CES or MWC this year? Did Intel not want him to tag along like last year? Are they distancing themselves from their "Black Belt"? One part of being a Black Belt is certainly the free "tech support" on the forums, but another part is good PR in having people promote your products.

I don't think having a scammer promote your products makes for very good PR however Wink

Of course, they wanted to him to tag along. But he chose not to go because his focus right now is on ship...hahaha, can't even get it out with a straight face...

Well, Intel giving its forum posters the ability to come to events doesn't translate into Intel paying for airfare, hotel, etc. If the only truth that's come out of CP's butthole-mouth is "Kickstarter funds were exhausted," there's no way he could pay for the trip. Because I can guarantee you he paid for his trip to MWC the year before using backer dollars. Guarantee it.

Intel Black Belt Software Developer, still hasn't created anything, yet continues on
with more forks of Open Source Software to "generate revenue"......KickStarter and
US Federal Trade Commission still remain silent on $78,000 scam.
