In celebration of Valentine’s Day, we’d like to share an open letter to the heroes of the Magento ecosystem…
Dear Magento Certified Developers,
It’s hard to believe, but only 14 months ago there was no such thing as a “Magento Certified Developer.” Sure, there were lots of great Magento developers out there…but there was no objective way for these developers to validate their skills and no practical way for companies who hire Magento developers to know which of you were truly qualified.
What a difference a year makes!
Today, there are more than 1200 of you: individuals who have earned the “Magento Certified Developer” or “Magento Certified Developer Plus” credential. You work for our top Solution Partners, Industry Partners, and customers. You live in 52 countries around the world. And you bring the highest level of expertise to your projects.
As you know better than anyone, Magento solutions are powerful, flexible, and sophisticated. In the hands of experts, Magento can do pretty much anything, as our customer’s success stories demonstrate. And you have demonstrated your unsurpassed skill – as well as your commitment to quality – by earning our most prestigious credential: Magento Developer Certification.
We’re not the only ones who hold you in high regard: wherever companies are implementing Magento solutions – which is pretty much everywhere – demand is soaring for your services. And we’ve made it easier than ever for these companies to find you.
We’ll close with three quick Valentine’s Day invitations:
- Keep it fresh: Check the Magento U Catalog for courses that will help you expand your skill set.
- Share the love: Tell your developer colleagues about the benefits of certification and encourage them to take the exam.
- Get a hug: While we haven’t yet deployed the MCDVDHS (Magento Certified Developer Valentine’s Day Hug Squad), hugs of appreciation will be available for any certified developer who attends our Imagine eCommerce conference in April. (Register soon—tickets are going fast!)
Once again, our very best Valentine’s Day wishes to all of our Magento Certified Developers. We love your passion, and we honor your commitment to doing great work!
