Hello, my name is Amy Smith and I have just recently started looking to return to the workplace after raising my children. I joined this website because I thought it might help to chat with others in the field to get advice. My experience is in mainframe development and I am pursuing a career in web development but I am having a hard time figuring out where to start. I thought I might try and get a certification of some sort. I've researched a little bit, but there are so many certifications out there it is quite overwhelming!! Does anyone have any suggestions as to what web development certifications are most reputable in the field these days, or if certifications hold any weight with employers at all?
