re: What certifications have served you best in your development career? VIEW POST


To offer the other side of the coin from Ryan. After I obtained the 4 low level AWS (Associates/Practitioner) my phone and email will not stop with offers. I moved from a Sr. Dev role (wherein the certs would not be of any great value) into a DevOps / Cloud Engineer role (what I was aiming for as my next role) and added a 20% salary increase. Looking forward to obtaining the Professionals adding another 20% is very reasonable.

IMO; if you want to stay in the software relm; AWS certs will not benefit you to any great extent. However, if you are wanting to shift to cloud tech, the certs are invaluable for advancement.
