Visual Studio 2010

Do you want to see if you are ready to develop for the Windows Azure platform? Do you have what it takes to create Web applications by using Microsoft ASP.NET, JavaScript, Ajax, and Microsoft Silverlight?

Getting certified on Visual Studio 2010 helps show employers and potential clients that you have the skills you need to be successful.

With Microsoft Visual Studio 2010, you can create what you can imagine, build on the strengths of your team, and open up new possibilities.
