It’s been a little while since I posted much in the blog and I know some are wondering what is going on with Microsoft Certifications.
We have completed our designs for the TS level SQL Server 2008 certifications and those are going or have gone into development. That means betas sometime in the summer, no firm dates yet.
We also will be starting development shortly on the Visual Studio 2008 Pro level exams. The betas will be much later in the year though.
We are also in the early stages of deciding what the next security for developers certification will look like and, hang on to your hats, a new certification on Microsoft Solutions Framework v4.
These last two exams are very early on in the envisioning stages so there are no specifics on them. We are looking at the previous exams, seeing what was good and what was bad so we can make the right decisions on the new ones, plus we are also working with the Solution Accelerators group here at Microsoft around the certification and training needs for MSFv4.
So hang in there, our fiscal year planning is winding down and that means more exams and changes are coming. More news as it happens.
