I’m also a Charter Member of the Microsoft Professional Degree in Data Science.
I’ve had mixed emotions about certifications over the years. Employers like them. Some even require them. In the first phase of my career I gathered certifications to prove I knew stuff. Soon I realized that many of these certifications (especially the MSFT ones) were too easy to obtain. So I stopped the Certification Pursuit. Lately, I’ve been acquiring certs again…mostly to discipline myself to really learn and understand a topic. In most cases I regret wasting the time pursuing vendor-based certs.
I’ve even blogged about some of the certs I’ve gotten:
