Microsoft Certification Updates: Server 2012 R2, Changes to MCSM

Microsoft recently released new details on upcoming certification changes for Windows, Windows Server and the MCSM program.

The most notable change here is the dropping of the training requirements for MCSM. In the SharePoint world, gaining MCSM really set you apart from the crowd. There are already concerns out there that this change has already devalued the prestige of the certification itself. What do you think?

SharePoint Conference 2014 – Thoughts, Predictions and Unmitigated Fun


Like clockwork, Microsoft officially announced yesterday that the next SharePoint Conference will be March 3-6 2014 in…wait for it…Vegas! I’m actually somewhat surprised, as I was expecting SPC to grace another venue during a non-release year, but the organizers decided to stick with the popular Vegas location. Judging from the outcome of previous conferences in Vegas, I highly doubt anyone will complain.

So without further ado, here’s a few of my thoughts and predictions about SPC14.


Clearly those last two predictions are completely bogus and strangely intriguing, but what do you think about the others? Add your thoughts below!

Road to MCSE:SharePoint – Tips on Passing 70-410 Exam Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012

SharePoint MCSE

Before I jump into the good stuff, allow me to provide some background info on why you’re reading this. I decided last year that I would go for MCSE: SharePoint (2013), as I’ve been completely bypassing Microsoft certifications for many years. Most IT Pros have similar reasons for avoiding the MS certs as I did, so I won’t bore you with the details. In short, more credence has been placed on 3rd party product/technology certifications in my industry, therefore I haven’t even really seriously considered an MS cert since I was taking the ancient MCSA 2000 courses! I have two reasons for pursuing the cert at this time. One, I’d like to help my employer maintain a silver or gold competency. Two, I’ve been working with and evangelizing on Microsoft SharePoint technology for many years, so why not just pass the exams? After all, I know all this stuff! Or do I?

If you’re familiar with Microsoft certifications, the aforementioned MCSE moniker should be pretty familiar to you. What may not be familiar, is that there is an MCSE certification specifically for SharePoint. This new certification is part of a larger effort by Microsoft to create more focused certifications based on core competencies. The new MCSE certifications are also a bit more simplified to understand, as the prerequisite is essentially the relevant MCSA certification. Before I go any further, it’s important to note that MCSE is no longer called […]
