Microsoft is calling all .NET Framework 4.0 experts! Update your SME profile now!

Posted by Rubel Khan on October 23, 2009

Have you been playing around with .NET Framework 4.0? Do you want to participate in the development of the next round of .NET Framework exams? Here’s your chance! Microsoft is looking for volunteers to participate in blueprinting for the following exams:

  • 70-515    TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0, Web Applications Development
  • 70-516    TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0, Accessing Data with ADO.NET

Micrsooft will be using the MSL SME database to find participants for blueprinting as well as other phases of development for these exams. For your best chance of participating, create a SME profile by filling out the survey on the MSL SME site on Microsoft Connect. (See this post for more information.)

Please note that if you already filled out your SME profile, you’ll need to go back and update it. They changed the answer options for “Which technologies do you have work experience with?” to specify versions of the .NET Framework. Micrsooft will be looking for folks who select .NET Framework 4.0 on this question to help develop these exams. If you filled out your SME profile awhile ago, your answer will show as “.NET Framework” without a specific version unless you go back and update your survey response.

Good luck.
