Azure / azure certification limitation for non-.net programmers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Today I cleared 70-532 Microsoft certification on azure (Yippie!) and noticed significant number questions that were .net code based.

    The time has changed and Microsoft has started welcoming 3rd party elements and tools with it. I know that Microsoft has shipped various SDKs for non .NET developers to work with azure.

    However, if at all any Non .NET developer would like to get certified by Microsoft on azure, how he should proceed with it if many questions are .NET code based?

  • This problem is not exclusive to Azure. In general many Microsoft platforms allow using third-party tools, but the certifications that Microsoft offers will only certify you on Microsoft tools. For example, if you certify on Virtualization, it's always about Hyper-V, even though you could install VMWare on Microsoft Windows. Or if you certify as a web developer, it's always about ASP.NET, even though you could perfectly well develop a PHP application on IIS. In all these cases, the advice would be to get certified by the provider of the third-party tool that you wish to use, rather than getting certified by Microsoft.
