Due to bunch of busy stuff, I had not have chance to blog.
Anyway, I am pleased to share that I am now officially MCPD (Microsoft Certified Professional Developer) in Windows Azure.
Obtaining MCPD in Windows Azure requires three exams:
- Exam 70-513 – MCTS prerequisite: TS: Windows Communication Foundation Development with Microsoft .NET Framework 4
- Exam 70-516 – MCTS prerequisite: TS: Accessing Data with Microsoft .NET Framework 4
- Exam 70-583 – MCPD requirement: PRO: Designing and Developing Windows Azure Applications
Passing the core 70-538 Beta Exam
I have successfully passed the beta exam of Designing and Developing Windows Azure Applications about a year ago. Beta exam is more challenging than normal exam. There’re no official preparation material, no training kit, no e-book, no online training.
It’s just purely state a few topics with their short descriptions what will be tested.
Passing the MCTS Prerequisite: 70-516 and 70-513
As you can see that, there are 2 prerequisites exams that need to be accomplished apart form the core exam 70-583. I had passed the 70-516 last September and 70-513 just last week.
With that, here’s my MCPD cert in Windows Azure
