This week's book giveaway is in the Programmer Certification forum. We're giving away four copies of OCP Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 11 Programmer I Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-815 and have Jeanne Boyarsky & Scott Selikoff on-line! See this thread for details.
I finished the CIW Enterprise Developer track (including SCJP) early this year and got hired as a CIW instructor. Nice. But CIW doesn't bring what was expected so my employer asked me to make a study plan to broaden my (internet related) skills. My question is, which way to go? What's hot? Should I go further on Java (SCJD?) or migrate to (brr!!!) to .NET? Or does anyone see any other oppertunities? Hope to get some independent adveice! TIA, Erik Dark
I think it really depends on your goals, long-term. Aside from SCJD, Sun offers the SCWCD and SCJEA examinations, both of which cover J2EE. There's also the jCert track which includes J2EE and UML exams. Beyond these, IBM offers an exam in XML technologies, and there are other companies with their own offerings that overlap into Java. Something to consider.
