    Hey,

    My employer is very supportive in training and development so I've been thinking about career paths recently.
    I studied a HND quite a long time ago which covered Java and VB, but dont think i can remember much. Then a few years back (with a different employer) I got the SharePoint 2010 MCTS and MCITP. I'd like to build on this by moving into SP development.

    I realise this will be a long path, but everyone has to start somewhere right?!

    I've had a look at Microsoft certs and decided that 98-361 (Microsoft Programming NET 4 Software Development Fundamentals) looked like it would be a good start?

    from here I'd like to move towards the SharePoint:MCSD, but don't want to study too much that isn't directly on the MCSD path.

    So can anyone suggest a good route of Microsoft certs for me to follow?


    I found the following roadmap, but it doesnt seem to include SharePoint Development..

    thanks!

    Here is the certification path for Sharepoint MCSD :-

    SharePoint Developer Certification | Microsoft

    98-361 is not on it as its an entry level certification designed to get you into the industry, where as MCSD is a professional level certification for people already in industry.

    I agree. The roadmap you have is very old. All of the 2008 material were expired 5 years ago.

    For MCSD I would expect you to consider the App Builder pathway as a starting point

    .... (grr! Admins - I am still too new to this site so cannot post links.)

    Look in "Microsoft Courses UK" at the Softeware Development section for each pathway and related courses.

    Alternatively look at Microsoft Learning in the MCSD: App Builder section.

    Best regards,

    Matthew

    Hold on - this is a Microsoft thread. Isn't Confluence somewhere between SharePoint and Yammer?

    Yes confluence does more than document management, its collaboration wiki, with comments and wall posts.
