First let me point out: I know it has been a while since my last post. I will try to get some more posts done in the future and I have already some in the line-up including:

  • Extending Commerce Server 2007 Payment and Shipping Methods
  • Disable "Requires Question and Answer" option in Commerce Server 2007
  • Being part of a sparkling new .NET Usergroup ( / Sørens blog posts)

Some time ago I wrote a post about my upcoming education strategy including a MCTS Web Developer certification. This certification takes two exams and I'm very happy to announce that I have now completed the first of the two exams. I have passed the Exam 70–536: TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 - Application Development Foundation. My score on the test was 806 points with a passing score of minimum 700 points.

The complexity level of the test took me a little by surprise - or maybe I was not enough prepared, however I think the test was harder than I had imagined. But that is not a bad thing - that only encourages me to study harder for my next exam, 70-528, approximately coming up by week 49 (December).

A small hint about the exam is that a good thing to master completely is the globalization/localization stuff in the .NET Framework, a lot of questions in my test was regarding that, so classes like CultureInfo, RegionInfo, NumberFormatInfo, CompareInfo, Calender etc. are worth looking at.

Next event for me is the upcoming TechEd Developers 2007 in Barcelona. I'm very excited about it and I will soon post a list of some of the sessions that I properly will attend. Also Microsoft Denmark has announced that they will be holding a 'Country Evening Party', a night-out for the Danish attendees which I'm really looking forward to.
