I'm wondering about doing a Qt Certification Exam this year, but I'm not 100% sure the investment is worth.
I'm considering it because I think it could be a nice + on my resume, and as you know, I'm all for improving my software engineer persona. As I already earn a BSc and MSc degrees in computer stuff, I guess I see the certification process as some kind of adventure. Anyway, I know I'll spend a lot of time preparing myself for the exam and I just wanted to know if a Qt certification is worth the effort.
Apparently there are 2 certificates that you can get in the Qt world:
- Nokia Certified Qt Developer (basic)
- Nokia Certified Qt Specialist (advanced)
Nowadays I build cross-platform software in C++ and this exam would fit beautifully in my resume. My main concern is that, given the obscure future of Qt, I might be throwing time and money out the window.
I'm looking for some advice regarding the usefulness of such certifications.
