What kinds of MCTS for windows console application? RRS feed

Answers

  • Hmm ... you have to work with Windows Console Applications? Or you have to develop them? And what do these applications do?

    If you have to configure / setup Windows on a console, the different Support and Config Exams for Windows 7 / Windows Server 2008 could be of interest.

    If you have to develop software, the full MCPD could be of interest. Most seems to be not required (e.g. Windows Forms / ASP.Net), but as a developer it would show that you know the basics. (The only basic exam is the 70-536 that no longer exist in the 4.0 exams.)

    I hope that helped a little.

    With kind regards,

  • The is no exam replacing the 70-536. The Visual Studio 2010 / .Net 4 exams was reorganized a little:

    - The basic exam 70-536, that was a prerequesite to all MCTS exams (regarding Visual Studio 2008) was removed (Not sure, if the content moved completly to the other exams or if it was removed)

    - There is no MCPD Enterprise Developer 4. Instead, the exams that was a prerequesite for this are now prerequesites for the 2 available MCPD titles. So a MCPD Web Developer 4 has to know about WCF and ADO.Net, too.

    You find all details about the available Visual Studio certifications at:
