Calling All Windows Azure Experts--Update Your SME Profile Now!

Amanda Van Kleeck

Do you have work experience focused on AppFabric and API specific development tasks associated with Windows Azure applications? Want to help us create the first Windows Azure exam? Here’s your chance! We are looking for Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) for the following exam:

  • 70-583    TS: Windows Azure, Development

We’ll be using the MSL SME database to find participants for blueprinting as well as other phases of development for this exam. For your best chance of participating, create a SME profile by filling out the survey on the MSL SME site on Microsoft Connect. (See this post for complete instructions.)

Please note that if you already filled out your SME profile, you’ll need to go back and update it. Krista changed the answer options for “Which technologies do you have work experience with?” to include Windows Azure. We’ll be looking for folks who selected Windows Azure on this question to help develop this exams. If you filled out your SME profile awhile ago, this option was not available for you to select.

    Having read

    should I understand that promo code will be published herelater  without necessity to spend my time for updating SME profile?

    While updating SME profile does not guarantee the invitation anyway?

    How can I be notified about invitation if I do not receive Email notifications from portals where I registered/lsigned-in with WindowsLiveID?

    Hi vgv8,

    We do not always publish the promo code on Born to Learn; it depends upon how many Beta participants (those sent the promo code as a result of showing up in the appropriate SME profile pull) have registered. In the case of the Azure exam, it would be best to update your SME profile. Ensure you select "Azure" as one of your areas of expertise. Also, please ensure you do not check the box that tells Microsoft not to contact you. Once you've updated your profile, give me a ping at and I'll do a pull to verify that your name appears in my list. Thanks!
