A Case Study
Although Google’s developer certifications are relatively new, they have already seen evidence that becoming certified can make a meaningful difference to developers and employers.
Adaobi Frank a graduate of the Associate Android Developer certification – got a better job that paid ten times more than her previous salary after completing her certification. Her interview was expedited as her employer was convinced that she was great for the role after she mentioned that she was certified. Now, she’s got a job that helps provide for her family – see her video up. Through their efforts, this year, Google wants to help many more developers like Ada and support the growth of startups and technology companies throughout Africa.
