Certifications or Degree?

Should you invest $80-100,000 or more for a degree or spend $99- $300 on a technical certification? That is the million dollar question and as much as we value degrees the tech industry is moving so quickly colleges are unable to keep up with the pace of change. Leading to an unprepared workforce with degrees and no real world experience. The return on investment from an in demand technical certification can outweigh the benefits of a college degree. The hands on experience you gain from studying for a certification is more than most will gain from a 4 year college degree. While college degrees are still relevant they are not the be all end all to get a high paying position in tech. If you ask me the AWS certifications are the new bachelors degrees.
