Newsletter lists numbers and titles for upcoming MCSD exams.
According to "Certification Corner," a certification newsletter, several exams in the works have already been labeled and they're .NET related:
Microsoft declined to officially acknowledge these exams. However, if this list eventually remains intact, it uses a familiar scheme that Microsoft has been following, only this time the company is heavily pushing the familiar and omnipresent .NET technology. How these exams will fit into the new "developer" track is anyone's guess. It's likely that Microsoft will time the release of details, requirements and course curricula with its Professional Developer Conference in Los Angeles in mid-October.
"Certification Corner" also lists details of Microsoft's forthcoming exams for the MCSE track:
The 70-280 exam, according to the newsletter, will be an offering under the new "Systems Administrator" track that Microsoft is developing; there's no indication whether it will also be an MCSE elective. Microsoft has also declined to comment on the development of these exams.
