Re^2: Perl Certification revisited
in thread Perl Certification revisited
But sadly one must also admit it will only work for those who know about CPAN and for many PHB a shiny certificate with stamps and seals is "easier" to accept: if anything goes wrong you can always point to the certificate and say "I know he trashed our database, but he was certified for the job!"
I heartily agree.
I've started my contribution to CPAN, albeit small at this time I plan for it to grow. It's something I'll mention with great pride when I put forward a proposal to companies, but sadly unless they are Perl people I'll be getting a blank expression on their face. Most of them only understand certification.
