So, I'm a recent Computer Science graduate and landed my first job as an ASP.NET application developer in the government sector. I've been working here for about a year now and i'm liking the job so far and i'm getting to that point to where I want to start looking into educationally pursuits to advance my career. Due to the environment I work in the Security plus cert is seen as the goto cert to get and while I know it's popular as someone who mostly likes programming and wants to eventually get into AI among some other disciplines i'm not sure if it's worth the time investment. Do Application Development/Software development jobs usually require Security plus or is the strictly for IT?
Note: I also have some PL/SQL experience too and while I know that comes with it's on set of security related practices does the knowledge presented in Security plus help enhance this?
