We recently interviewed Rahul Kumar Saini, software engineer at Successive Technologies, about his experience taking the OpenJS Foundation Node.js Application Developer certification. Here’s what we learned.
Why get certified through OpenJS?
How was the test-taking experience? Compared to vendor-specific certifications, how is a vendor-neutral test different?
The test-taking experience is quite good, the examination platform was user-friendly and easy to use. The pattern of the exam was problem-based not just objective type. In my opinion, vendor-neutral tests add extra trust and security in comparison to vendor-specific certification.
How has the certification helped or added value for you?
It boosts my knowledge since the curriculum of the exam was covering all Node.js core modules/APIs in detail. It helps me to explore the best practices and standards.
What are your career goals and how do you think certification can help in reaching them?
Anything else to add?
I like the problem-based exam pattern that also tests your abilities in real-life scenarios instead of just multiple-type objective questions.
Congrats to Rahul for this great accomplishment!
