I get questions about certification and training from IT pros and developers everyday, via Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, etc., and I answer (nearly) all of them. (Here's how to find me.) If one IT pro or developer is asking, I figure the answer is probably worth sharing with more of you, so here's one I got on LinkedIn today:

Hi D, By taking exam 70-483, you can earn "Programming in C# Specialist" certification. See http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/visual-studio-certification.aspx . You can then go on to take exams 70-484 and 70-485 to earn your MCSD. See http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/mcsd-windows-store-apps-certification.aspx . We are also rolling out the developer certification study group online. You're welcome to ask questions in the forums. http://borntolearn.mslearn.net/certification/developer/default.aspx#fbid=-NEqNLeSQAK . Hope this helps! Veronica
Hi Veronica, hru?
I was studying for the exam 70-513 (www.microsoft.com/.../exam.aspx). It is "MCTS: .NET Framework 4, Service Communication Applications".
I would like to know if it is being retired on july this year, because some time ago, before of updating the new look of certification site there was a note that this exam was going to be retired on that date and now the note is not present.
Besides, I do not find any new exam that take this topic into account.
Could you confirm me that it is not being retired at least this year?
Thanks in advance!
Alejandro no 70-513 is not retiring this year (2013) and we have not set a new retirement date. When we set a retirement date, we try to provide at least 6 months notice.
Thank you very much!
