Hello fellow ranchers,
For those who took Spring class and passed Spring certification - was it a useful experience? Was the class good, worth the time? Need to figure out whether to pursue the certification and if so, how to convince the company to pay for the class.
Thank you in advance for your responses,

What do you mean useful? No certification will get you a job but they
get your cv to the top of the pile...
If your company is prepared to pay the Spring course fees then do it but there's nothing on the course that you can't learn equally well from Spring In Action (or another Spring book).
The exam itself is pretty easy, it doesn't go into too much detail so it is no way a good indicator of a person's ability to use Spring succesfully.
I agree. Here's the link:
