If you like steamtrains you should take a trip to Wernigerode and take a trip with the [^] to the top of Brocken. It's running on a schedule several times a day.
25 steam engines, 140 km tracks and more than a million passenger per year.
Brocken is the highest mountain of north Germany and is often covered in fog, so choose your day properly.
Wernigerode is worth a few hours on it's own, so don't despair if you fail on the weather.
The contract manager I work for has been trying to fill an empty contractor seat for six months. One of the requirements is a CSSLP cert (as well as a Secret clearance and Security+ cert).
He searched Linked-In for "CSSLP", and of the 10's of thousands of IT people in Linked in, only 48 had the CSSLP cert, and NONE of them are developers. The reason I have to get the cert is because my job title is "senior developer". They're going to try to ammend the contract so that my position is titled "developer", but requiring the same skill set.
All of this means taht I won't have to get a CSSLP cert (if they can ammend the contract).
