View Full Version : Not sure if this goes here, asp.net certification

05-29-2011, 12:45 AM
Currently working with a team to develop an application in php/jquery, apparently we also need to write an asp.net/C# version as well :eek:

On the downside about the only thing I've done that relates in some asp support and a fair amount of vb6 :) On the upside the promise of certification in asp.net and related is being waved in the air.

Okay my questions:

Having a look at the sitepoint book, seems a good intro text, what more advance texts would be worth getting?

Anyone have a link to the MS certification requirements and general info?

Can the express versions be used to develop with or should we be looking at purchasing the full monty?

I'm not sure if my PC runs IIS to be honest, will Apache run .net pages etc?

Thanks in Advance folks.

the only Q I can answer (bc im working on getting cert'd myself per my employer) is they have me using Wrox professional books for text. I do not know requirements (as they have said "By the time we're done with you, you will get MS certified no problem)... the texts are a little wordy... also be sure to get text on Database stuff

Actually quite confusing to try and work out what exams lead to certification as an asp.net person. :confused:

The MS site isn't much help and differing blogs are throwing up differing exams :eek:
