Learning Paths for MCSD: Windows Store Apps with C# and XAML

By Mike Woodring on June 13, 2014
The Microsoft Certified Solution Developer (MCSD) certification validates a developer's ability to build complete software solutions that span technology and platform boundaries. To earn the MCSD credential, a developer must pass a series of exams, each of which focuses on a particular programming language, platform or service.

The MCSD: Windows Store Apps certification validates a developer's ability to design and build fast and fluid Windows Store apps. Achieving the MCSD: Windows Store Apps certification using C# and XAML involves passing three separate exams:

  • 70-483: Programming in C#
  • 70-484: Essentials of Developing Windows Store Apps Using C#
  • 70-485: Advanced Windows Store App Development Using C#
