So You Wanna Be A Mobile Web Specialist?

The Google Developers Certification Team announced the Mobile Web Specialist Certification, which aims to highlight those who have skills as mobile Web developers.

These skills include basic website layout and styling, front end networking, accessibility, progressive Web apps, mobile forms, performance optimization, and caching, testing and debugging as well as ES2015 concepts and syntax.

Developers taking the exam will write code in a timed, performance-based exam (this is actually Google's second performance-based certification, alongside the Associate Android Developer certification). The cost for the Mobile Web Specialist certification is $99 USD and includes up to three exam attempts.

Those who earn this new certification will be able to display a digital badge on their resume and social media profiles.
