Developer exams spotlight security
In the wake of security concerns that are plaguing the company and its customers, the timing of these exams couldn't be better.

"We are responding to demand from both individuals and hiring managers to recognize these essential security skills within our current certification track."
That Microsoft is emphasizing security with these exams means that "Microsoft is expecting developers to keep up their end of the bargain and learn about security; it's not just lip service anymore," says Jason Mauss, an MCSD and solution architect with Knowledge Relay in San Francisco.
