Until now, many developers who sought a certification to prove their Laravel development knowledge turned to That certification platform, although it operated under the domain, it was not part of the core Laravel ecosystem. Meaning it was not managed by the very people who developed Laravel and its first-party packages.

Yesterday, someone tweeted and complained that he sent two tickets to the certification platform with no response.

Taylor Otwell, the creator of Laravel responded in that conversation thread and confirmed that they are breaking ties with the certification platform.

Taylor's dissatisfaction with the way the certification platform was being managed was very apparent in the tweet that followed.

The sub-domain now redirects to the project's homepage while returning an HTTP 302 status code.

$ curl -I
HTTP/2 302

The HTTP 302 status code indicates that it is a temporary redirection.
