Microsoft Cloud certification updates

I have posted few blog posts about preparing for the following exams: 70-532 Developing Microsoft Azure Solutions and 70-533 Implementing Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Solutions.

However there has been some changes that Microsoft implemented regarding the certifications and qualifications. Now you will have to re-take Azure exams every year. It feels like one year is nothing, but considering how quickly cloud itself is changed, it definitely makes sense for the professionals who want to be on top.

Now it is going to be two types of Microsoft Certified Solution Associate (MCSA): MCSA Cloud Platform and MCSA: Linux on Azure. Next level became Microsoft Certified Solution Expert (MCSE) Cloud Platform and Infrastructure. Full details are here. Microsoft also announced that Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer (MCSD) will retire at 31st of March, 2017.

This is new certification paths

Good luck all!
