To me, what this day this year means is that exactly one year ago (Feb. 14 2000) I took the Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform exam for the first and only time and got 98% score. Then a couple of weeks later when I posted my resume, without any professional experience in Java, I got a great job as a Java developer. (Actually, I got two offers, not one! ).
At the time I was one of the two moderators of the <CODE>Programmer Certification Study</CODE> forum at JavaRanch (the other one was Jim).
Of course I posted about it in JavaRanch the same day. Also at Marcus' site. You can read about it (even now!)   It's the first link in here.
I Hope my stories serve as encouragement to others.
