Froot9278182dNope, not indian
Froot9278182d@Vitz Nah, not salty.
It's just that there have been a zillion similar posts recently, all from India. I guess Google launched a thing there or something.
Djanjo533182dYep 3 months ago there was phase 1 with lots of members now they picked like 10% for phase 2.
It got Android and web development, actually really nice of them, quality videos.
sharktits42156182dI will never understand why is this better than any random how-to on the internet
repromancer144181d@BindView I think it's more about the certification. Being able to put on your resume, "Hey look, I'm not just saying I'm an Android developer; I also have Google to vouch for me."
repromancer144181d@Froot Yeah, I feel similarly.
On the one hand, I think it would be nice if recognition for programs like these could finally replace the arbitrary "required Bachelor's in CS" on every job posting. On the other hand, I doubt that any hiring managers who sincerely focus on signals before substance are ever going to see past "higher education".
I think anyone who would see the value in a private certification would be just as likely to hire you without a degree or certification of any kind, based on your portfolio/real aptitude for the job instead.
