The Top 5 Online Programming Certifications

Whether you’re choosing a language-specific or platform-oriented credential, it’s worth looking at my top five programming certifications for software developers.

I’ve talked several times before about attending to coding boot camps, doing nanodegrees but I’ve never actually talked about the best online programming certifications that are out there.

Nowadays, the entire programming workforce is changing so much and there are A LOT more options for those who want to become developers that, if you really want that, you should consider all possibilities.

Developer and programming skills are in high demand, and this isn’t changing anytime soon. This is why achieving a developer certification can help you keep an edge in the market by making you stand out among your peers. And the programs are getting stronger each day, especially with those online certifications.

So… What are the top 5 online programming certifications?

    University structure crumble ? I agree that there are many good alternatives to college but 60% of the high school graduates are still attending universities. College is way too theoretical it is good see some alternatives but I don’t think college is going to crumble.

    I have a learning disability ADHD and I want to understand the terminology of video game development or how spot bugs in the video games.?

    I am a self taught coder and finding your channel is amazing, I appreciate you and your content buddy just got your two books and can’t wait to jump into them. Much appreciate if your ever free I’d love to pick your brain my email is 🙏🏽

    Have you actually tried out any of these sources you’ve mentioned? It would have been nice to know from “personal experience” how these sources you’ve mentioned are actually worth diving or spending money into. Instead you just say some marketing hooplah because you’re paid to do that.

    Can i get a job without BD with only self-studying and online courses?

  12. Incredi Stark on November 28, 2019 at 11:52 pm

    What about w3schools

  13. Koshinko Senki on November 28, 2019 at 11:57 pm

    I really need a software development course not web development course, so thinkful is not on my list.

  14. Leonel Colina on November 28, 2019 at 11:58 pm

    I graduated as a telecommunications engineer back in Venezuela… but to be honest I don’t like it much. If I start studying data analysis online and get certificates from these websites…. could I actually get a job with those?

  15. Nguyen DucAnh on November 28, 2019 at 11:58 pm

    Those biceps, those arms. WOW.

  16. Iam Pyre on November 28, 2019 at 11:59 pm

    Has anybody actually gotten a job from any outlets/products he mentioned?

  17. Eddison Lewis on November 29, 2019 at 12:00 am

    What about Udemy?

    How many tren you are injecting son? Let me jizz on those arms.

  21. Isabel Alvarez on November 29, 2019 at 12:02 am

    If your in California and are interested in a Coding Bootcamp check out SoCal Tech Academy!

  22. Darius Seals on November 29, 2019 at 12:05 am

    Why not Udemy ?

  23. andrew raymundo on November 29, 2019 at 12:05 am

    How do you make money with your free program?

  24. Raeanne on November 29, 2019 at 12:06 am

    Hello. I have been thinking about this the past couple months becasue my husband is a Sr. Mechanical Engineer and has a phenomenol income. He knows several programs and can help me if I get stuck. I’m university educated and have a masters degree in social work and also a special education teaching certification. I worked in schools and with teens for over 20 years. However, I started in computer programming and worked for a computer company when I was a young adult. The education in this field seems to have changed.
    My concern is that I am older. I’m 51, turning 52. I no longer have at home family obligations. Do you think this type of program would work for an older person such as myself that has the time and resources to devote to the educational piece? Also, I am looking for a career where I can work from an office part of the time as well as from home part of the time. I’m a bit of an introvert and spend a great deal of my time on the computer already.
    Thanks for your input – anyone that would like to input.

    I need help writing code for my Artificial Intelligence program I titled "God".

  26. Mallory Jane on November 29, 2019 at 12:07 am

    Has anyone done any of these and actually gotten a job??

  27. King Palafox on November 29, 2019 at 12:08 am

    THis video is click bait and misleading. Don’t waste your damn time.

  28. Miss Mex on November 29, 2019 at 12:08 am

    You’re the buffest programmer I’ve ever seen. Lol!

  29. Marija Nachevska on November 29, 2019 at 12:08 am

    Certifications : Azure Administrator, Microsoft Web Developer, Unity 3D Artist. You get certified after passing the exams. You are stating Web services that are offering courses. Misleading.

  30. Martin Russell on November 29, 2019 at 12:09 am

    Hasn’t Bloc been purchased by Thinkful?

  31. Kulin Kumar on November 29, 2019 at 12:13 am

    How is Programming Hub app which provides certificates?

  32. Logix Indie on November 29, 2019 at 12:13 am

    I accidentally closed the video, then I opened this again but not sure where I left so I just skipped to random part. And it was exactly where I left…

    I thought that was interesting…

  33. oswaldsp hupp on November 29, 2019 at 12:16 am

    For the best online courses type in google as "Zoe Talent Solutions

  34. Realm of Trickx on November 29, 2019 at 12:17 am

    All of courses on Udacity are free but you have to pay if you want the certification.

  35. Andreas Schärer on November 29, 2019 at 12:18 am

    blabla, make a shorter version please…

  36. Sajib Mondol on November 29, 2019 at 12:18 am

    too much talk, go straight to poit lol

  37. But Who Cares What I Think on November 29, 2019 at 12:19 am

    I keep meeting people who tell me that they got hired before they even finished Free Code Camp. After 3 months with FCC (full time, going for it) I was really surprised to get a paid gig (just a temp thing) with a local business. I didn’t realize I already had something to offer. Before that, I spent over a year and a bucket of cash at… somewhere else. Beware!
    At the beginning of the course, there was an assigned task that inadvertently revealed how many people completed the assignment. There were around 4500 entries. When I got near the end of the course, there was a similar assignment. At that point, there were about 225. An informed estimate would be that the drop-out rate was somewhere in the neighborhood of 95%.
    A little before the middle of the course, the instruction just fell apart. There were mistakes in the teaching, blocks of code to add that were wrong (these went unfixed for months and are likely still there), there was instruction about one thing while accidentally showing something from further ahead in the course, errors in the school software that called right answers wrong (I mean, lots and lots of them – each with it’s own little flurry in the private forum until everyone knew that that was just how it was), nervous/fidgety/unsure teachers, a quiz showing the wrong block of code, things taught in the wrong order, inexcusable omissions in the content, the removal of a significant service that many students depended on (of course with hype about how the change was a good new focus and direction – yea right).
    I could go on and on. At one point there was even an accidental page that said I had completed the course! The forum was splattered with angst. Really, what I’ve already said is nothing! It was one of the worst experiences of my life. I saw the dwindling numbers, but I thought "I’m not a quitter". Still, eventually I gave up also. I was a worse programmer after the course than before I started. The coding joy was crushed. I started looking for an entry level, non-tech job.
    I won’t name this school, but trust me, you’ve heard of them. I think the reason people don’t speak out is that it’s a catch-22. If you can’t make it, you’re just a whiny loser, and If you make it, even though you know it was garbage, you want to use it as a reference. That leaves exactly no one to tell the truth, and a school that is hard to call to account. All I can say is that Free Code Camp is a welcome change. Some day I’ll look back at it and laugh? Well, maybe I will when I get my first check. I just have a little left to wrap up for that business, and thanks to FCC, I know how to do it.

    What about coding ninjas? Thank you.

  39. Deep Roy on November 29, 2019 at 12:24 am

    they are awesome

  40. Shaana Morris on November 29, 2019 at 12:24 am

    Awesome video! I have been looking at a few of these but am really trying to go to the UC Berkeley extension program since I am in the Bay Area. It’s not the online program that you were talking about. From my understanding that one is actually about $12,000. Which is still pretty cheap as far as bootcamps go. But you are so right DON’T CHEAP OUT ON THESE!

  41. kp1832 p on November 29, 2019 at 12:26 am

    Are you on all social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram and tumblr and Twitter and snapchat.?

  42. Dragonfly Kode on November 29, 2019 at 12:27 am offers certs as well.

  43. Jerry Grauert on November 29, 2019 at 12:27 am

    I want OSCP and OSCE to prove my x86 assembly.
