Is too late to take the 70-480 Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3 exam? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All, having in mind that the Exam 70-480: Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3 exam was releases pratically 3 years ago, is too late to take that exam or should I wait to the new exam wave related to Visual Studio 2015? (I know that that exam in particular is not attached to VS but just in case MS decided to update the full course set.

    Thanks!

  • Hi Pablo,

    Exam 70-480 is actually not focused on any version of Visual Studio. It covers W3C (Worldwide Web Consortium) HTML5, JavaScript and CSS. this exam is part of the various developer tracks (Windows Store apps, SharePoint Developer, Web Developer).

    The Windows Store developer track for HTML/JavaScript consists of three exams, 70-480, 70-481 and 70-482. Microsoft did announce that the 70-481 and 70-482 will be updated to include content that is VS 2013 specific, and to retire content that is deprecated in Windows 8.1 (for example, view state management features).

    You do not need to worry about these exams expiring any time soon.

    Good luck preparing for your exam. Do you know about Microsoft's virtual academy? This web site has a lot of great content to help you prepare for your exams. Here is the link:Microsoft Virtual Academy site

    You can read more about it at is late to take 70-480?
