Next Meeting


Have you ever considered getting a Java certification but weren't sure how to start? Will obtaining a certification make you a better developer? Do certified developers make more money? How do I upgrade an older certification? What is taking the exam really like?

During this open and conversational presentation, we will explore these topics, discuss participant questions, and much more. We'll also be sprinkling in a fair bit of tricky (and fun!) practice certification questions throughout the talk, and answering them using an online quiz tool.
