I finally had (made!) time to wrap up two certifications that I have wanted to complete for a long time. One is the MCPD: Enterprise Application Developer, and I am also a Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT) for Enterprise Application Development, which allows me to teach all Official Microsoft .NET Development and BizTalk Server courses.
I recently stumbled across an interesting Microsoft certifications page that includes the number of people worldwide who have each of the various certifications. It’s pretty interesting. At last update, there are just over 13,000 MCT’s worldwide, and only about 4,000 MCPD: Enterprise Application Developers worldwide! I was really surprised at how low the numbers are for the three flavors of MCPD after two years of availability.
This gives me a great opportunity to put some graphics on this blog for a change! 🙂
