It's been an eventful several months for SharePoint MCM/MCSM/MCA since our last program webcast:

  • Completed initial development - training content, labs, knowledge exam, lab exam - for MCSM: SharePoint
  • Delivered MCSM:SharePoint Beta training & exams
  • Opened MCSM:SharePoint registration to the general public (registration for our March-May hybrid rotation closes in just over 2 weeks)
  • Certified more new MCMs!

...so on that note, we're overdue for a few announcements.
