Which Certifications Should I Get as a C# Developer?
Showing Off Your C# Skills
Let’s start off by saying that getting a certification is not typically the best way to show a potential employer that you are a good candidate. There are a lot of better ways to do that. The problem with certifications is that people study for the test instead of actually learning how to do the work. Microsoft has worked to make the tests more real-world focused, which does make them better but nothing replaces experience.
Even more recently, Microsoft retired their only C# certifications and did not replace them. They did not feel that they could provide a good representation of a user’s skills based upon a test or set of tests.
