More Developer certification.
Xamarin, Web and so on.
Xamarin and Dynamics 365 certifications had very little coverage so far. Would be good to learn more about these cross-platform and Business Application solutions.
Developers need more certificates, I suggest Microsoft provide MCSA , MCSD in Azure or office 365 for developers hope my suggest come true, thank you.
DevOps certification, Microsoft Stack Architecture certification (just not for Azure)
Certifications never covered the VBA developement skills and with new generation of Office add-in maybe courses and certifications on that track can be interesting for many people and also because of new apps appears in Office 365 like Power Apps, flow and so on. So I suggest "Office DEV"
Office 365 Developer Certification. I have been teaching some custom content on this and I think there is space for it in the Microsoft Certo World. Contact me if you need extra information. I would love to help.
Do you know if 70-473 and 70-475 going to retire. I was planning to take both of them but was not sure if they are going to be replaced by new ones
A developer certification exam targeting C++ and Office 365, someway like the 70-483 exam for C# specialist.
@Ranjeet, according to the "Retired exams" page (www.microsoft.com/.../retired-certification-exams.aspx) and the last MOC Title plan there is no thing about retirement for the exams 70-473 and 70-475 till July 31, 2018.
Thanks, @Mehdi. Try this link for Retired Exams: www.microsoft.com/.../retired-certification-exams.aspx
It would be great if Microsoft fixed the badging system for certification so that it was uniform. MS Virtual Academy badges do not show on acclaim. All in one place.
Has MS reconsidered having a PowerShell certification?
I would like to see more blogs about PowerShell and related technologies.
Also, I feel this blog is behind the curve. I passed the 2016 MCSA 4 months ago and there isn't a study group for it yet. I would like to see more integration with MS virtual labs and the MS Virtual Academy. Such as linking those sites to the study groups so I can easily get started with any learning. I feel like I need to go on a treasure hunt to find study materials that MS is already providing. This blog should be show-casing everything needed to get started to prepare for a test.
I'm reading your comments and appreciating every one of them. We are interested in all of your ideas for the certification program, especially those that we can address right in this blog. Thank you!
Hi Selina, I'm not sure if you've written about this yet and I just couldn't find it, but it would be great to better understand the difference between Microsoft Professional Certificates offered EdX and Microsoft Certifications offered on www.microsoft.com. For example, I had planned on getting the training and certificates via EdX - perhaps I should still get the training on EdX, but get the actual certificate through microsoft.com? Is that what Microsoft is recommending?
Xamarin, .NET Core, EF.Core Certifications.
