On today’s Weekly Show the Packet Pushers jump on the live grenade that is the debate over the value of IT certifications.
Spurred by Greg’s blog about giving up his CCIE status, this episode looks at the value of technology certifications such as the CCIE and others.
Greg and guests Mike Fryar, Chris Kluka, and Jeremy Filliben discuss the benefits and limits of professional certifications, the differences between certifications and actual skills, whether certifications represent a standardized body of knowledge or just a set of instructions, and how the industry might better foster learning.
