Microsoft announces SharePoint MCA

Ed Tittel Ed Tittel Profile: Ed Tittel

On Monday, October 3, 2011, at the MS SharePoint conference in Anaheim, California, Microsoft announced a new Microsoft Certified Architect credential to the product’s self-selected core audience. This marks two interesting milestones in the evolution of Microsoft’s pinnacle IT certification: first and foremost, it puts SharePoint right up there at the forefront of Microsoft’s critical technology platforms (along with Exchange Server, SQL Server, and Windows Server itself); second and somewhat more whimsically, it shows Microsoft surrendering to the inevitable TLA-ization of the architect credential moniker. That is, “Microsoft Certified Architect” is now being abbreviated as MCA, despite Microsoft’s initial attempts to resist this impulse for the first two years of this program’s existence!

You can read a brief blurb on this newest member of the MCA line-up on the Born to Learn blog (headline depicted above), or get the complete details from TechNet’s The Master Blog in a post entitled “Announcing MCA for MIcrosoft SharePoint Server 2010… and our very first SharePoint MCAs!” Check it out!
