Now an MCPD in SharePoint 2010!

Well, I had a few days spare as my new contract hadn’t started so was pondering what to do, and decided to sit the two developer based SharePoint 2010 Exams.

There are two of them in the new development based certification track for SharePoint:

The first exam will grant you an Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist and the second one the new Microsoft Certified Professional Developer.

I am very pleased to report that I passed both exams (yay me!) and can now proudly sport my new certification logos:

    hey .. didn't see these at first!

    Thanks Joe 🙂 The second exam was probably more tricky, mainly because the questions were more ambiguous.

    The first one is much more about the object model rather than approach.

    To be honest, if you've been doing SharePoint dev / architecture work in anger for a few years you should be fine even with minimum prep.

    Congratulations, Martin!
    Planning to take the first exam sometime in the next few months, and maybe the second one sometime this year. So like Joe, I'm interested how it compares to the first one.

    How does the second exam compare to the first in difficulty? I've done the first and am sitting the second on Friday.
