We recently interviewed Juan Picado, a Senior Front-End Engineer at Adevinta about his experience taking the OpenJS Foundation Node.js Application Developer certification (JSNAD).
Here’s what we learned.
OpenJS: Why get certified through OpenJS?
OpenJS: How was the test-taking experience? Compared to vendor-specific certifications, how is a vendor-neutral test different?
OpenJS: How has the certification helped, added value for you?
JP: I always felt insecure in a few areas of Node.js. Streams and Process always were scary to me and those are part of the core of this certification. Even having years of experience, I have acquired valuable insights and a new vision on how to make things right. For me, it has been really valuable and has helped me dive more into the specifics of Node.js. A certification always has professional benefits.
OpenJS: What are your career goals and how do you think certification can help in reaching them?
OpenJS: Anything else to add?
JP: It is worth mentioning that the e-learning platform in combination with the one-year period gives you enough time to prepare yourself. That is really valuable.
