Get certified for free, Microsoft offers free certification exam (70-480)

Recently I got an email from Microsoft regarding the free exam voucher that can be used for exam 70-480 : Programming in HTML 5 with JavaScript and CSS3. This is a great opportunity for developers to get certified without spending any money. Awesome!

With the release of Windows 8, Microsoft has announced the capability to develop windows store apps using HTML5, JavaScript and CSS3. So now developers can be certified in these technologies to showcase your expertise. I think this is the only certification available for HTML 5.

Free Voucher Code

You can use the free voucher code HTMLMPN or HTMLJMP as the registration code.

Hurry! The registration code has some limit on the number of registrations.. So register before the count ends.

Great initiative by Microsoft! But just want to highlight one thing, if Microsoft is promoting the development of Windows 8 Apps (for Store) using HTML 5 and CSS3, then why even for a Developer machine a License is required to develop Windows 8 Apps using Visual Studio 2013 or Blend Studio. I mean at least for developers, there should not be a License required.
