Certification Exam Training Tips with MCT Sasa Kranjac.



The Real Reason Developers Should Get Certified

There are very few ways to quickly prove to yourself that you really have touched the breadth of knowledge in a specific area. Certification are a way to not only guide you through the roots of emerging technologies, they offer you a way to measure your understanding of these new technologies.


Azure certification Exam:70-583 vs Exam:70-487

Microsoft offers two categories of exams; Those that are technical based (such as 70-487) and those that are Job-Role based (such as 70-583).

technical based exam focuses on “How” to do stuff with a technology whereas a job-rolebased exam focuses on “Why, when and where” to do stuff with technology.

e.g. A technical based exam might ask “How to implement (code) IDisposable interface in a class?” whereas a job-role based exam might ask “Why and when you should implement the IDisposable interface”.

Whether you should do exam 70-583 or 70-487 really depends on whether you want to be a developer or a designer. If  you’ve 3yrs experience as a developer, you should probably do 70-487 (and then maybe do 70-583 as I don’t believe you can be a developer without knowing how to design – IMOA).
