Is Microsoft Certification (MCSD: Web Apps) worth it?

leave a comment

A few month ago, I decided to update my certification and sit for MCSD: Web Apps exams.

In UK, it’s not a must have. There are a lot of great developers that are not certified. However, any candidate that goes
through the recruitment process has to prove to non-devs (HR, recruiters and hiring managers) that he is worth the time and effort to be considered as an added advantage (rather than a filter) for an interview.

Job seekers that go to meetups, events and talk don’t necessarily have to flash their MCSD certificate for the added advantage.

Overall, I think if you’ve got the time, it’s a nice challenge to do.

In order to prepare for the exams these are the PluralSight courses I did:

070-480 (Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3):

070-486 (Developing ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Applications):

070-487 (Developing Windows Azure and Web Services):
