The Few, The Proud, The 1000 post
I got an e-mail the other day from the folks at Zend informing me that they were going to be certifying their 1000th person very shortly, and as a thank you for being one of the first 1000 Zend Certified Engineers we were given a special grahpic to put on our web site instead of the usual graphic that they recommended using to signify you are Zend Certified. So I uploaded it to this site and you can see it in the "About The Blogger" section.
I know some people have poo-pooed the certification, but it got me my current job and recommend that anyone who wants to be taken seriously as a PHP developer write the test. Don't forget to study though.
