@QuincyLarson I don’t want to lead anyone away from freecodecamp - you all do an incredible job! - but if someone NEEDS a certificate, you can apply for the CS50 course on edX.org and for $90 you will get a certificate when you complete the course.
Although I started CS50 last year, life got involved, but I am back at it. It truly stretches the mind and gives the participant a real understanding of the theory of what is behind programming and how to think about it. If someone is looking to learn a language - this isn’t the course. But if someone want’s to know a little more about the the thought process behind the coding, I couldn’t recommend a better path.
PS. I kept getting a “429 Too many requests” error when following the link in the weekly newsletter, so I think you are on to something good!
