New Microsoft Certs
Hey, it looks like there's some official info out now about the new Microsoft certs for .NET 2.0 and more. Now there's going to be an MCTS (Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist), available in 5 different areas:
The last BizTalk cert exam was for BizTalk 2000, so I guess we're skipping over BizTalk 2002 and BizTalk 2004. Glad to hear they're finally updating the cert for this.
The 2.0 MCTS certs all have one exam in common: 70-536 .NET 2.0 Application Development Foundation
There's also an MCITP (Microsoft Certified IT Professional), MCPD (Microsoft Certified Professional Developer), and MCA (Microsoft Certified Architect). I think they like to add some new acronyms every few years so that none of the alphabet feels "left out."
Hopefully I'll get a beta invitation to a few of these since I have previous certs.
