I got good news for all the current and future SharePoint 2013 Microsoft Certified Solution Developers.
I have been actively looking for information on the not-yet released MCSD SharePoint 2013 Certification and last week I did a post about the Leaked MCPD SharePoint 2010 to MCSD: SharePoint 2013 Upgrade Path
However, today I got some Three New Facts from J. Seymour, Content Publishing Manager at Microsoft Learning.
The SharePoint 2013 MCSD will be named: MCSD: SharePoint Applications
As you all know by now, new developers will need 4 exams to get the MCSD: SharePoint Applications title.
- Exam 70-486— Developing ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Applications
- Exam 70-488— SharePoint Rest ( Exam Number Confirmed, Name not confirmed)
- Exam 70-489— SharePoint Collaboration ( Exam Number Confirmed, Name not confirmed)
The Links to the two SharePoint Focused exams will be :
If you clicked on them.. they don’t work yet (at the time of writing this post) and they will be working once we are closer to the betas.
As Confirmed in my first post about the SharePoint 2013 Certification, this certification contains two Web focused exams and two SharePoint exams. What is interesting is that once you have the 70-480 and the 70-486, you only need the 70-487 to also have the MCSD: Web Applications Certification.
For those who are curious, here is the original comment left by J. Seymour.
I hope this article cleared all your questions and rumors regarding the MCSD: SharePoint Applications Certification!
