Hello! I’m seeing in the forums and on multiple Medium articles that many people broke into web development and software engineering (in part, outside of code camps) by taking advantage of the free MOOCs that are out there. Among the most popular ones seem to be Harvard’s CS50x ($99 with the verified certificate) and MIT’s Introduction to Computer Science and Programming Using Python ($75 with verified certificate). My question: would the verified certificates add any value to an aspiring programmer’s resume/portfolio, or is the course itself something that would be of higher value than the certificate? I’ve read differing opinions on this, and generally when I see that, I conclude that it doesn’t really matter which way you go. Thoughts on this? Is it worth it to pay for the verified certificate?
