    What is the MCSD Windows Store Apps?

    The Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer (MCSD): Windows Store Apps certificate is for those who want to work analysing, designing and developing Microsoft applications and programming technologies in a business environment.

    The MCSD will give you the skills and expertise at designing and developing fast and fluid Windows 8 apps. There are two paths to achieving this certification—using HTML5 or C#. Both paths use different exams so you'll have to choose what route you wish to take.

    To get your MCSD: Windows Store Apps certification using HTML5 you need to take these three exams:

    Exam 480: Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3
    Exam 481: Essentials of Developing Windows Store Apps Using HTML5 and JavaScript 
    Exam 482: Advanced Windows Store App Development Using HTML5 and JavaScript

    Or to get your MCSD: Windows Store Apps certification using C# you need to take these three exams:

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


    Exam 480 and Exam 483 validate programming skills in a specific language. By passing one of these exams you will earn a Microsoft Specialist certification and by passing all three you will gain your MCSD: Windows Store Apps. See below for more information on the exams.
