Ever since I learned about the Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) program back in the early 00’s, I’ve always wanted to get certified. I think it helps with getting new clients, to set yourself apart from the crowd with a certification next to your name. Some people argue that it’s unnecessary, and that experience and a good portfolio are the true test of a good developer. Well, I agree, but I also feel it’s important to show that you meet certain industry standards. The Adobe Certification exams are tried and true programs that give you more credibility. Besides, you get to put a cool new logo on your site. =D
Well, now I’ve officially scheduled my exam, and I’m going to get certified! I’m taking the Flex 3 with AIR exam, and I’ll be sure to let you know how it goes. I’ve noticed a lot of people blogging about it on the Adobe feeds lately, and I’m now more motivated than ever, so here I go. Wish me luck!
