Vue School has been at the forefront of online developer education since its inception in 2016, providing Vue.js enthusiasts of all skill levels with the world's first (and largest) dedicated Vue.js training platform. Over the years we’ve collaborated with the greatest industry experts to create hundreds of lessons, courses, workshops, and tutorials, events and upskilled more than 700,000 developers.
In a significant milestone, we partnered with the Vue.js Organization to develop the Official Vue.js Certification Program. Inspired to raise the profile of Vue.js developers around the world, we worked closely with the Creator of Vue.js, Evan You, and interested members of the Vue.js Core team to define the standard of what it means to be a competent Vue.js developer.
The goal of the Vue.js Certification is to enhance the confidence and knowledge of the developers. The resultant certification can also provide a guarantee to employers that certified candidates will meet these standards.
The announcement was met with tremendous interest from our community, with more than 20,000 developers eagerly signing up for the Vue.js Certification program.
Since then, the platform, and our vision, have grown larger than we ever anticipated.
Over 2,700 developers participated in our pre-launch survey, and the appetite for certification in our community has been palpable.
Notably, 97.5% said they were excited about the Vue.js Certification Program
Furthermore, 96% believed that certification would certainly enhance their professional credibility.
These results reveal the core motivations for certification, however there are a number of other benefits to acquiring certification, including enhanced job prospects and professional credibility. Research has also shown that it can benefit companies with improved team morale, productivity, skills, and efficiency.
Building on Success
Over the past 9 months, we’ve been working hard to develop a modern certification platform that would meet and exceed the expectations of our community. From multiple choice questions and code challenges that accurately assess developers’ competency, we’ve put in hundreds of hours to create content to come up with the remarkable product we have today.
Added to that, we developed a preparation platform to assist developers in growing their skills prior to taking the exams, and to guarantee the irreproachable of the exams and control the exam topics we established an examination board of world-class experts.
Throughout the process, we’ve worked with industry leaders, like members of the Vue.js Core Team to test, review, and help polish the content before it even went into Beta Testing, which we conducted with the help of a number of pre-order customers to further refine and improve the product to what it is today.
In fact, the technology we ended up building was far beyond anything we could have anticipated. By the time we had finished, we had added so many exciting features that we had opened up a whole new world of possibilities, both for our platform and our developers!
In response to the massive interest from the web community and overwhelming demand for certificates that validate skills in other technologies too, we discussed the future of the certification platform with Evan You and made the decision to move it to a new home --
In this new home, we will be able to broaden the scope of the project to offer other developer certificates and host all the features we envisioned to cater to the ever-evolving needs of developers worldwide.
