Passed Exam 70-510: Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server

Got a nice postmail this morning from the States, telling me that I passed Exam 70-510: Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server! I took the Beta Exam two months ago and finally I have the results in front of me, yay! I scored 826 points, not bad at all.

The good thing about the Microsoft Exams Results these days is the detailed output you get with the test results. It is telling me that I've got a strong foundation (pun intended) in the technical skillset area, whereas my skills concerning process and project management need a bit more attention. This is consistent with what I know and what I need to improve upon.

Lately I've thought a lot about which road I am going to take to develop myself further. I have a strong foundation in Microsoft Servers, coupled with a not-so-usual outgrowth to Microsoft Development. I have always liked dealing with the diverse issues that arise when these two area's meet. Consulting or Architecture seem the two most likely paths to pursue in the long run.
But for now, a bit of celebrating is in order!

Side Note: Out of the 11 Microsoft Exams I have taken (and passed) during my career, the last 4 were all Beta Exams. Guess that makes me a bit of an Beta Exam addict.
