in reply to Expert programmer's certification

People whom paper their walls with certificates only prove their ability to sit through endless classes, or spend time on line answering questions that are small enough to be scored on a 1 – x scale.

People who have a stack of certificates and can explain why they took the courses that fit my (corporate) needs are ones I have an interest in.

My next question is – “So how have you applied the knowledge you go from the course?”

Funny thing is, sometimes I expect to hear – “Not much, it was a bad course selection.”, but generally what is needed is statements like “the course had some in depth theory/ or techniques that I used to accomplish such and so project.

Just my 2 cents worth
