And rightly so. There are undoubtedly people on this list who could
carve tree rings around me in terms of data flow processes.

follow the industry trend of certification when it may or may not even
guarantee you a job, let alone better pay, better work, or more
inclusion?

I usually find I have that problem most on weekends. :) I'm respectful
that you could find passion in whatever job you took up. That's
something I have to work at.
