    Hello WDF,

    Today I officialy became certified in HTML 4.0, XHTML 1.0, and CSS at w3schools. I found the test easier than what I thought and heard it would be. I am aware of what some people think about w3schools, being old material, however most material on the exam, I found,wasen't in any of their tutorials. (Luckily I had gone through quite a few sites).

    So now, being certified in XHTML and CSS, what language should I move onto? I was thinking of doing some JavaScript, but not sure yet. PHP has always been a pretty strong language, but not so much for web design as it is for web development. So, with that being said, what language should I do next?

    My certification page


    Thanks,
    -Jeff

    Jeff,

    I'm not exactly sure what a w3schools certification is worth, but I'm sure it can't hurt!

    For your next language, move on to whatever you feel strongest in...

    Thanks for the responces

    For now, I feel pretty comfortable with moving up to Javascript, to make my web pages more user interactive and alive. As I know XHTML, and CSS, Javascript seems to be what i'll be needing the most. Still open for recommendations, however.

    Thanks,
    -Jeff

    I think you should focus more on learning and less on getting certified.

    I agree, sometimes I will get caught up on actually documenting my knowledge, rather than maintaining and improving it.

    Dear Jfab,
    Congrats that you have been certified especially in XHTML and Css . I want to clear you one thing
    There are two things
    1. Client Side Scripting (html, css, javascripting, Jquery)
    2. Server Side scripting (Asp.net, php, Ruby)
    For me the next language you can easily learn is php is a server side scripting and side by side you can easily do javascripting.

    I'm a Microsoft Certified Professional!

    I took an exam for free on how to troubleshoot Windows and IE. But I got a spiffy pin and everything. Certification is nice on a resume but it doesn't really say much compared to experience.

    I'd definitely do a server-side language next, although you'll find you'll start doing Javascript at almost the same time.
