Discussion on: Certifications Don't Matter But They Absolutely Do Matter

Nice article, Josh.

"I was completely overwhelmed by the choices I had" — I can definitely relate to this. The current industry is moving so fast I don't really know how many do keep up, it's absolutely insane. I have also used certifications (and the structure in them) as a way to kinda see through the confusion and give me a sense of direction. I'm actually yet to take the exams... but I'm now considering it as a way to rubber stamp what I've learned.

How was the CloudSkills Azure DevOps Bootcamp? I don't have any real interest in Azure at this point in time, but it seems like a pretty cool format for course qualification.

P.S you should stick in a link to: as I had to go dig for it!

The CloudSkills Azure DevOps Bootcamp was nothing short of amazing. Mike taught the content through practical hands-on labs. Mike is a fantastic teacher and I learned all I needed for the exam though his lectures and labs. However, the most beneficial part for me was learning alongside my peers and answering each others questions. Having that level of interaction kept me fully engaged and allowed me to learn the content at a much deeper level.

Per request, I've included You Are an Engineer, Be an Engineer to the post. :) Thank you for the recommendation and comment!

Side note - I really enjoy the content you put out Lou. Keep it up!
