Right. I don't think right now it is all that relevant. I have not seen it as a pre-requisite when it comes to job listings.
This goes for redhat certs as well...
The industry right now, certification wise, seems to be Ciso/Microsfot and VMware. Even possibly HPUX/Sun professionals..
I think you should keep an eye on the Zend Framework certification.
The thing about PHP and its framework is that it is funded and powered by Zend right? So I would look at Zend making more and more of a push in the industry to get people certified.
That's why I have not really looked at other frameworks like CakePHP.
Same goes for Redhat, my investment will be in Redhat certs.
I don't think corporations will want to know how well I know SuSe or Ubuntu, Gentoo etc...it will be the company that has the financial backing to make a presence in the certification industry...
