I am planning to go for a php certification. Since I do not have a proper work experience, a certification will help me build my portfolio.
So, I was planning for Zend certification. Is it worth taking or is some other certification (like w3schools) better?
Anybody here who got zend certified? Does the certification really help you in job market??
