Java Certifications

Here is a nice article with a list of different Java certifications available (not just from Sun):

Right after finishing my Computer Science degree, I pursued my SCJP certification and although it was not a guarantee for a job, it definitely gave me an advantage over other candidates.

Whether if the certification made me a better programmer or not, I am not sure. However, I noticed that the certification gave me extra knowledge that my programming classes did not teach me and that my colleagues did not know.

After a few years programming, I realized that good programmers are made of experience, knowledge and creativity, not just certifications or good grades at school.

Until next…
