  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have only experience in making desktop applications.(except the basics about ASP.NET you get in 70-536)

    The last visual studio version I worked with is VS2010 (did a bit of self research in 2013)

    Now I want to change my career to a web developer.

    What is the best way to learn it? And what exams should I take?

    What is the difference between exam 70-515 or going for path 480 486 and 487?

    If I choose for exam 515 will it also learn me about  HTML5, CSS, etc(front end)?

  • Hi Danny,

    For web development you can have a look ak the MCSD: Web Applications certification:

    http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en-us/mcsd-web-apps-certification.aspx

    You need three exams for this certifcation, 70-480 (includes HTML5, Javacript and CCS3), 70-486 (includes ASP.NET MVC 4) and exam 70-487 (inlcuding Windows Azure web development)

    Exam 70-515 is an older exam that is part of the MCPD certification. The MCPD certification has been replaced with MCSD.  

    MCPD is based on Visual studio 2010 and will not be updated.

  • Hi,

    If you really interested in frontend part you need to learn the foundation eg. CSS, preprocessors, HTML5 API, jquery and JS. Probably some CSS framework.

    After <g class="gr_ gr_14 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim Punctuation only-del replaceWithoutSep" data-gr-id="14" id="14">it,</g> chose JS framework that best suits you and <g class="gr_ gr_13 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim Grammar multiReplace" data-gr-id="13" id="13">learn</g> it in deep.

    The situation with backed pretty same, database learning and server side. Find out how what is web development phases are http://merehead.com/blog/7-phases-of-website-development/

  • You have firstly start with CSS/HTML and study also about preprocessors. It's a foundation of web development.

    THen, decide what direction do you like more - front end either backend. For example, with the frontend you need learn a bit more about design styles, types etc. http://merehead.com/
