So MANY flavors of Information Technology Certifications

The information technology community is beset with certification mania.  But certifications are often the only proof a worker has background and knowledge in a given topic.  It's often difficult to prove what role a person has had in previous projects.  Did they really write the code?  Did they really manage the project?  Without a portfolio, proof is hard to come by.  So, we have certifications, instead.  Here are some of the big ones:
