How do you share your certificates?

How do you share your certificates?

I’m curious where other FreeCodeCampers display their certificates.

I guess the obvious place is to put this on LinkedIn, but where do you put it in your profile? Do you put it at the top, in your certificates? Under “classes”? Do you include FreeCodeCamp as a school?

I happen to have a LOT of certificates - more than 70 - because I take a lot of Lynda courses, and I don’t want it to get lost.

Thanks for the input.

Hi, sorry for the late reply.
I would put mine in a different page/section specific for certificates or achievements.
Than I would divide them based on their category.

In case of a resume, though, I would include only the ones that can be related to the job I would apply (but still with the url of my webpage where they could find both the portfolio and the rest of the certificates).

I was wondering if any thought has gone into using the LinkedIn API to add certificates.

I’m not sure what the requirements are but I do recall using it once with what may have been Coursera.
@raisedadead or @QuincyLarson?

Thanks for sharing this with me. I didn’t realize LinkedIn had an API for this. I’ve created a GitHub issue for us to discuss this and potentially add a “publish to LinkedIn” feature.

Here’s the GitHub issue:
