Another certification that’s been released today, and this one is for an audience that has been ignored for the past 6 years: Microsoft 365 Developers! The name of the certification is the MS-600: Building Applications and Solutions with Microsoft 365 Core Services towards the Microsoft 365 Certified: Developer Associate certification!
Why a new certification?
The last time we had a certification for SharePoint Developers was for SharePoint Server 2013! Ever since, Microsoft Learning didn’t show any love to SharePoint / Office 365 developers for SharePoint 2016, SharePoint 2019 or Office 365. I think a big reason for that is that the landscape for Microsoft Dev has changed a lot, and lots of things were introduced like the SharePoint Framework and the Microsoft Graph. This certification is an awesome opportunity for SharePoint and Office developers to get certified on the latest dev technologies.
What is covered in this certification?
This exam really covers the big customizable parts of a Microsoft 365 environment, from identities, to SharePoint, Teams and Office, as well as the Graph which is cross product! You can see the high-level topics and split below!
- Implement Microsoft Identity (20-25%)
- Build Apps with Microsoft Graph (20-25%)
- Extend and Customize SharePoint (20-25%)
- Extend Teams (15-20%)
- Extend Office (15-20%)
