Certified Web Standards Developer?

June 1, 2005

Think about it.

Should there be a body that certifies web developers/designers on their knowledge of web standards? (A la Microsoft, Sun, etc.) I think that would be a great idea. A test of this sort would help the awareness of the public of the existense of web standards.

It would also give developers/designers some sort of incentive for improving their skills.

The only snag? Web standards itself is still in a precarious situation where there are still loopholes (quirks mode anyone?) in the standard.

But I think the whole certification thing is a good idea. Paging W3c…
