The Certs Question

Microsoft certifications have always been the source of some controversy. When these things were all the rage, a cert in your pocket was the ticket to a hot job, or perhaps a promotion in the current one. Some folks collected them like stamps. A whole industry popped up.

Certs are still around and there is still clear value in them. But just how much exact value is the question.

Redmond columnist and Microsoft MVP Don Jones came across a bunch of new Microsoft certs and took that opportunity to re-pose the question.

First, Microsoft is really pushing the cloud in a lot of its certs, perhaps overpushing in Jone's mind.

So the question remains, do the certs make the difference in these days of cert mills? You tell me at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
