MCPD Enterprise Application Developper 4 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    i am a MCPD Enterprise Application Developper 3.5 and i wish to upgrade my certification to the .Net 4

    The problem is that in the Microsoft web sites they no longer speak about this certification (just Web, Windows and Azure) and i hope if anyone can tell me if a MCPD Enterprise Application Developper 4 certification will be available later or if i can upgrade to another certification like the MCPD Web developper

  • Hi,

    you can upgrade to the two available MCPD certifications. There is no longer an enterprise MCPD with Visual Studio 2010. (But if you check the contents of the MCPD, you will see that Microsoft moved the "extra" exams of the enterprise MCPD into the other two MCPDs so ADO.Net and MCF are required for the Visual MCPD certifications.

    With kind regards,

  • Hi,

    yes, the 70-523 will give you the MCPD Web Developer 4. And if you want to also keep the Windows Client part, then 70-521 will be the upgrade to MCPD Windows Application Developer 4. All details about the Visual Studio 2010 exams can be found at http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/cert-vstudio.aspx#tab2.

    With kind regards,
