    I think this is a great quote from the above article, while i dont think certification is the be all and end all when it comes to working in IT, the benefits of certification are immense, and have helped this guy forge a career.

    Good luck with all your certifications :D

    I kinda like the article. I was expecting it to be very biased but am glad it isn't.

    Nice find. :)

    It's a world domination thing, and he's right.


    For instance the only reason I passed my CCNA without any experience whatsoever was because BM said that wasn't the way to do it.

    :p
