I'm new to using Magento and wish to get into Magento 2 development. I've got some questions—
What languages should one learn before getting into Magento 2 learning/development?
What are some good online resources (for beginners) to learn Magento 2?
Is getting a Magento 2 certificates (Associate Developer and/or Professional Developer) worth it? The two exams together cost more than $450 and definitely demand a lot of time in preparation.
Whether these certificates are actually valuable in IT industry (as of 2018)?
