Visual Studio 2010 exam retirement dates changed


Many developers are now working on getting current or upgrading their certifications, especially now with the announcement of new Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer (MCSD) credentials.

The Visual Studio 2010 exams below which were previously meant to retire on July 31, 2013 will now remain available until further notice.

  • 70-511: TS: Windows Applications Development with Microsoft  .NET Framework 4
  • 70-513: TS: Windows Communication Foundation Development with Microsoft .NET Framework 4
  • 70-515: TS: Web Applications Development with Microsoft .NET Framework 4
  • 70-516: TS: Accessing Data with Microsoft .NET Framework 4
  • 70-518: Pro: Designing and Developing Windows Applications Using Microsoft .NET Framework 4
  • 70-519: Pro: Designing and Developing Web Applications Using Microsoft .NET Framework 4

No new retirement date has been set but we will keep you updated. There’s plenty of time to complete your current Visual Studio 2010 certification path.

Ready to move forward to Visual Studio 2012 certifications? See the MCSD page on our website for more information.

Guest blogger and video: Workflow in SharePoint 2010

All this week we will be featuring posts from guest blogger Joel Jeffery. Joel is a Firebrand Training instructor, who is currently developing courseware for our brand new SharePoint 2010 Configuring / Administrator and Developer courses...

A couple of months ago I presented at the Microsoft Architect Insight Conference 2010 in London.
Thanks to everybody who came along! The first session was based on my SharePoint 2010 BCS podcast.

The second was about Workflow in SharePoint 2010, looking at the full story from business analyst, through to designer and developer. I looked at how each of these job roles can use Visio 2010, SharePoint Designer 2010 and Visual Studio 2010 to play a part in the overall process of creating a workflow.

You can learn more about this in my video below:



P.s. All of my podcasts can be found on iTunes – search for “joelblogs tv” and you’ll find me! :o )

Guest blogger and video: SharePoint 2010 Sandbox Solutions

All this week we will be featuring posts from guest blogger Joel Jeffery. Joel is a Firebrand Training instructor, who is currently developing courseware for our brand new SharePoint 2010 Configuring / Administrator and Developer courses...

At the beginning of the year, it was a pleasure to teach SharePoint 2010 to an audience of developers for Microsoft during their Ignite event in Dublin.

One of the best features of the new development platform is Sandbox Solutions and the User Code Service. This allows developers to write code that is packaged up as a SharePoint .WSP solution, and deploy it at site collection level in a security sandbox. This feature is aimed at hosted and multi-tenant SharePoint users, and those that are more security conscious.

In the video below, I explain how developers can create a simple Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Sandbox Solution in Visual Studio 2010. I show what works and what doesn’t, and also how to write a custom validator for other developers’ solutions.
