  • Hi, Denys. Notice that the exam that you mention ("Programming in C#") was published in October 2012, while the original answer posted for this thread is dated June 2010 (more than two years earlier). So, at the time of the posting, it was true that none of the existing exams gave you a certification on a specific programming language. Of course, things have chaged since that time and you can now take an exam on C# (and only C#, no F# at the time of this writing).

  • No, and in fact there isn't either a certification on C# or VB.NET.

    Instead of certifications on a specific programming language, the existing certifications are of a "higher lever", where you get certified on a technology such as "Windows applications on .Net Framework 4.0" or "Web applications on .Net Framework 4.0", regardless of the language that you employ for writing such applications.

    You can choose to use C# or VB.Net, and in some cases C++ (but no F# yet) for taking the certification exams, but the language that you used for the exam is not mentioned in the certification that you attain.

  • Quick question:  Why isn't there a Certification for F# [or Powershell for that matter]? Especially now that they have this new programming certification for C#, the framework is essentially there.   Drop in the new language, make comparisons on how execution differs and, consequently how that changes the questions and answers.  Then, drop a long beta and give MS Academies, Engineering Schools, and Financial Mathematics departments 1st crack for zero cost for 15 months. After that, add to the line up as usually. I can tell you, there would be a ton of happy campers if MS Education & Training did that.  I would personally give up a finger to get certified in F# and to be able to develop elegant, robust web apps in the same language.  As an Cloud Systems Engineer who has an interest in the Financial Markets I could just focus on F#, Javascript & R [with a bit of C++]; continue to keep up my SAN, ESX, Hyper-V, vCloud and Azure skills and never look back.  Just thinking about that level of simplification makes my eyes water with joy.  Somebody, anybody, make this a reality
