MCP Second Shot (And other less obvious changes)
« on: January 08, 2015, 03:35:46 PM »
So, Microsoft Certified Professionals exams are offering a second shot program.

https://www.microsof...-us/second-shot.aspx

What it basically does is let you get a second shot at any exams that you fail within a certain time limit.  Generous and a good thing to take advantage of.

But when you look deeper, there's something ... troubling.

When you look at the Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer (MCSD) programs, there is a disturbing change.  The categories available are: Windows Store Apps, Web Applications, SharePoint Applications, and Application Lifecycle Management.

... What?

So you have no desktop certification outside of the windows store apps.

Anyone else call BS on this move?
