BabSim and... Becoming A Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer (MCSD) part 2

There are 4 MCSD certifications available.  In part 1 of our Becoming Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer series, we discussed MCSD: SharePoint Apps and MCSD: Web Applications.  Today we will be focusing on the other two – MCSD: Windows Store Apps and MCSD: Application Lifecycle Management.

MCSD: Windows Store Apps


Demonstrate your expertise at designing and developing fast and fluid Windows 8 apps. There are two paths to achieving this certification—using HTML5 or C#.

If you’re leveraging your existing web programming skills in JavaScript, or starting from scratch on a new website, we recommend choosing the HTML5 path. If you‘re a .NET developer and are planning to create Windows 8 apps, choose the C# path.

Earning an MCSD: Windows Store Apps certification will qualify you for such jobs as software developer, web developer, and quality engineer.
