    Good evening everyone, hope you're all having/had a lovely weekend! This is my first post on these forums, thanks for having me here!

     I've been building software for 21 years now and was considering getting some certifications under my belt.. for context at work we've built a pretty sophisticated automated governance system, and my favourite part of the technology stack is working in the Cloud (so much so we've started hiring people to take over evolving the other areas of the software so i can concentrate on the backend). Our platform of choice is Google Cloud, which I absolutely love, and we've just passed our first CHECK ITHC, so it feels like we're on the right path!

     After some research I've found a few certifications which i thought might be relevant: Google Cloud Professional Architect, CCSP, CISSP, and one for Terraform. I'm sure there are others too I've missed.

     Any thoughts or recommendations?Has anyone else been through these qualifications, are they useful? Is there any more i should consider? 

    Any feedback to help me make an informed decision would be most gratefully received. Many thanks in advance.
