Badge? I donʼt need no stinkinʼ badge.

Today the New Horizon online professional education organization sent me an e-mail telling me I could claim my badge. So, here it is.

What does this badge do? Not much. Itʼs supposed to be a verification that I took New Horizonʼs online classes, and document that I have awesome Python skills. Chicks dig documented Python skills like:

  • Deal with Exceptions
  • Declare and Perform Operations on Data and Data Structures
  • Define Use Functions
  • Manage Files and Directories
  • Programming
  • Python
  • Write Conditional Statements and Loops
If itʼs on the internet, it must be true

Hopefully no employer takes these little PNG files as verification of anything. But considering the way personnel departments are so overworked, understaffed, or even outsourced these days, for my next employer, I present this totally legitimate certification from Mars Academy that I am an accomplished terraformer and hyperspace navigator, grade: “Superawesome.”
