Dear all,

I worked in web content management area for almost 5 years and have 4 years of experience in JEE stuff. I happend to meet someone who is TOGAF certified and I wanted to do it. However the same person said this certification is only for practicing architects. I am looking for an opportunity as an entry level solution architect. I am quite comfortable in providing solutions in Java and LAMP technologies specializing in wCMS.

I would like to know your opinions on whether TOGAF can be a good thing on my resume or is it an over kill for my experience.

I've yet to run into anyone with TOGAF certification, nor have I ever been at a company that used the Open Group's architecture methodology. For an entry level architecture role, I'd focus far more on development communication skills and cross-technology understanding.

Cheers!

Luke
