Discussion on: Do FreeCodeCamp Certifications Hold Weight?

FCC certification is underestimated. Their courses are really hard, yet teach you how to solve problems on your own, look for resources on your own, to come up with your own solutions. An astonishing number of people get stuck at the Javascript part, me included, and quit. Those who finishes FCC, did a lot more than following a free online course. They learned perseverance, looking for answers, dedication.

I have a bachelor degree in CS, and to be honest, I've learned much more with FCC content than my fundamentals lacking classes at school.
