Knowing that Sweden and Canada are FME dense countries I suspected that this could be reflected in the FME Certification listings at Safe.com. So I grabbed my favorite weapon of choice and cooked a workspace that reads directly by using http and calculates numbers of certifications. (My first approach, was to use the XML flattening technique but ran into troubles as the HTML-data did not validate. So I had to resort to old trusty techniques using the AttributeSplitter by finding HTML-tags. Have a peak here if Youre interested).
The tables below are listed by using the FME Data Inspector. Note that there is absolutely no guarantee that the data is correct! Also – the data shown is only the listed data. People may very well be certified but not listed! The information does not contain the Safe Software certified guys.
