So we would be talking about certifications.
My name is Kindson The Genius and I would be happy to let you know that getting a good job with a knowledge of Computer Programming is not far-fetched. Yes, believe me, because I’m speaking based on my own personal experience.
Now these are the 5 certifications, that you need for employers to find you. You need not get all of them. One is ok…but if you have more than one, then you can actually have the option of choosing from different job offers that would come your way.
- MCSD – Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer
- AWSCD – AWS Certified Developer
- Oracle Application Express (APEX)
- MSTS C# – Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist: Programming in C#
- What You Should do Now
1. MCSD – Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer
The MCSD certification is one of Mirosofts most highly acclaimed certifications for Computer Programmers and Software Developers. With an MCSD certification under your belt, you have an edge over miriads of programmers out there who may not even know the next step to take after high school or university.
But it also comes down to this: how much do you love programming? If you really love programming and want to build a programming career, then look for likely exam questions and start preparing. Also note to write 3 exams where each costs 150USD
Start preparing by taking some of my beginner programming lessons:
2. AWSCD – AWS Certified Developer
Some persons believe that AWS Certified Developer certification is actually the leading certification in the industry. But for me, I do think that would be true in the next two years. The reason is that organizations are gradually moving to the cloud and AWS certification represents the skill you need to support cloud applications.
To earn AWS certification, you need to prepare and write the exam which costs 150USD and contains 40 to 60 multiple-choice question. If you have some knowledge of Visual Studio, then you can get up to speed with web services by taking my beginner lessons on web services in the links below:
3. Oracle Application Express (APEX)
If you have some knowledge of Java, then this would not really be an issue for you. Don’t be carrried away the the name. APEX is simply an oracle tool for developing Java Applications that use Oracle database. You can simply download and install it for free.
The APEX exam costs just 50USD.
4. MSTS C# – Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist: Programming in C#
The exam is called the 70-483 exam. This is one exam I could personally tell you that it is quite easy. Trust me, even if you write it in a weeks time, with prior knowledge and good preparation, you will surely pass.
This certification measures your skills in developing application in Visual Studio using the C# programming language. You need to know how to work with arrays, create and use classes and object, work with data types and variables etc. If this sounds like what you have been doing before now, then you need to get this certification so that you would easily stand out from the crowd.
The exams costs 150USD.
5. What You Should do Now
This is the important part. The reason is because, many get information from the internet and then they fail to act on it. So I would tell you the same thing, don’t just go and start browsing other websites. Just start now to prepare. I’m putting some links below this page to lesson you can start from and I wish you success as you prepare for your certification.
