There’s always plenty of debate relating to software testing certification.  For me it’s a bit like a tired vinyl replaying itself over and over again.  The pros. The cons. Why it exists. Etc. #yawn

If you focus on something, it becomes much more apparent. Focus on certification and you will end up being surrounded by topics, things and people related to it.

But if you don’t like it, don’t talk about it. Ignore it. Move on to another interesting testing topic and write/think/learn about that. Surround yourself with what you do want. Then spread the knowledge/word about it.

And who knows, perhaps overtime this whole certification will move on, or at least in your world it will move on, and your world is what matters. If your world doesn’t give a damn about certification, then what does it matter what they do?

Time is precious, move on.
