Certifications

Examples of my certifications:

  • HTML5
  • CSS3
  • SQL
  • Advanced SQL
  • JavaScript
  • jQuery
  • PHP
  • C#

Definitions:

HTML5: The latest version of Hyper Text Markup Language for the web. HTML5 removes the need for custom coding many common features such as buttons, video, etc.

CSS3: The latest version of Cascading Style Sheets for customizing the appearance of websites. With CSS3 custom styles defined, the style can be changed in one style sheet and the entire website will be impacted by the change.

SQL: Structured Query Language is a common language for querying databases. SQL is not precisely the same across all databases, but it is very close. This standard is also referred to as SQL93, for the year it was standardized. There have been many discussions about updating this standard, but no one has agreed on a new standard yet.

Advanced SQL: This is exactly as it sounds. This certification is all about the advanced methods and tricks for SQL. In this course I learned advanced SQL features and tricks that even database administrators were not aware of.

JavaScript: A web programming language. JavaScript can create custom features and interaction on a web page. Many of the interactive features that HTML5 has incorporated used to be programmed in JavaScript, that’s how popular this language is for creating features and interactivity on a website.

jQuery: Don’t call it JavaScript. It shares many similarities, but it has a very different approach. JQuery is a “write less, do more”, JavaScript library. Making it much easier to use JavaScript on a website is the purpose of jQuery.

PHP: A Hypertext Preprocessing language. PHP is a language that is run by the server and streams out HTML code to the web browser in order to display a web page. PHP and other languages like it are often used to access databases because the code to do so is hidden away on the server, away from the prying eyes of hackers.

C#: This is a Microsoft specific version of C++ that is tailored to the web. It also solves many of the issues created by inconsistent ways of implementing C++. Although C# doesn’t solve every issue cleanly, it has quickly gained ground on the web as a preferred programming language in certain circles.
