Last month I did a post that interested most of the SharePoint Developers out there about the SharePoint 2013 MCSD Developer Certification Path! That post contained 3/4 of the exams required for someone who doesn’t have the MCPD SharePoint 2010 Certification.
At the time of the post, the only information available on the Upgrade was the following:
Q.I have an MCPD on Visual Studio 2010. How can I upgrade to an MCSD certification?
A.If you have achieved an MCPD: Windows Developer 4 certification, MCPD: Web Developer 4 certification, or MCPD: SharePoint Developer 2010 certification, you will be able to earn an MCSD certification on the corresponding solution by passing two exams.
Other New Information
We can also see in the picture (Thanks Bjoern) that now we got names for the 70-489 and 70-488 Exam.
Exam 70-488 SharePoint REST will probably be about the SharePoint 2013 REST Service
Exam 70-489 SharePoint Collaboration ( In the screenshot it’s spelled “Colloboration”. )
The name is too vague for any information, however if I find anything I will update the post!
This is great news for SharePoint Developers because they will only need two exams to get the new certification!
