    MCSD: Web Applications

    that consists of 3 steps.

    MCSD: Application Lifecycle Management

    Step

    Certification earned

    1

    Administering Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2012

    MCSD: Application Lifecycle Management

    2

    Software Testing with Visual Studio 2012

    3

    Delivering Continuous Value with Visual Studio 2012 Application Lifecycle Management

    Basically go with any one of these three that you think looking interesting AND (and I can't stress that enough) has a viable path for you to work with it's no point on grabbing the ALM certifications if you only see yourself using GIT for the next years (and it will be much harder). Windows 8 apps is very hot right now and can be done with both C# or HTML5.

    Hope it helps and best regards
