The IBM badges are great. I've gotten few debating if I should link them to my Linkedin or not.

If you're looking for to land a job that's relevant to the badges you've earned, then add them. Otherwise it's not really necessary.

It depends on your goal but it's safe to checkout the backend, frontend certificates and choosing a programming language you're comfortable with, is always a good start!๐Ÿ€
