HUGE agree on the Skills > Certificates! I'm sure the courses are challenging, but those certificates aren't necessarily a sign of mastery. Sharing a project or a bit of insight on what one got out of the course (besides "I got so much out of this course!") would be much more telling.

Absolutely agree!

I just thought I'd mention that point because I'm seeing too many people chasing the certificates (and at the end they never use that knowledge again).
