More Letters to Add to My Name - MCP
Well, it’s been a while, but I’m back with news. Today I passed my first Microsoft certification exam and became a Microsoft Certified Professional, an MCP. I took the 070-316 exam, entitled "Developing and Implementing Windows-based Applications with Microsoft Visual C# .NET and Microsoft Visual Studio .NET", which means my passing proves that I know absolutely everthing about Windows programming. Woohoo! Okay...maybe not.
I’ve wanted to do this for some time, so I’m glad to have finally done it. The impetus this time was a special offer from MS, a promotion, where one can get a free retake if you fail the exam. As it turns out, it wasn’t necessary. I figured I would try, and would at the very least "get the feel" of a certification exam. But I passed. Woohoo!
So, tonight we celebrated. Chili’s to go...
