Hello, Jon. That's a very interesting topic. I've spoke with individuals that are responsible for hiring developers and their may concern is experience. Depending on the position, it could require a degree in CS or higher, however, good experience is the clincher. Plus, most shops are going to drill you technically anyway and If you're worth your salt you'll probably win out. I don't mean this in a negative way, however, I think sometimes individuals who are not certified may have a problem with candidates who are cerified and when you have three or four certifications it may make it worse, however, it depends on the company. That's just my opinion.
