Passed 70-480

Last Thursday, I took advantage of the promotion that Microsoft is running (until 31st March 2013) to give everyone a chance to take the 70-480 Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3 exam for free, and was pleased to find that I passed (scoring 860).

Completing this means I now gain the following certifications:

As an MCT, it also means I could now teach courses in those areas too.

It is nice to pick up the MCSD. This is the replacement for what was previously the MCPD certification. I had qualified for "ASP.NET Developer 3.5", but never got around to completing the .NET 4.0 version (due to not having taken the WCF exam).

Hi Dylan,

I have done a fair bit of web development in the past, which was useful. However I wasn't as familiar with some of the newer features of HTML5 and CSS3.

For that I had a look at some of the content in the online course at the Jump Start site, and also some of the content on the W3C site.
