Who should take this exam?

THIS EXAM IS INTENDED ONLY FOR THOSE CANDIDATES WHO HAVE TAKEN EXAM 532: DEVELOPING MICROSOFT AZURE SOLUTIONS. IF YOU HAVE NOT TAKEN EXAM 532, YOU WILL NOT EARN A CERTIFICATION BY TAKING THIS EXAM. THIS EXAM IS AVAILABLE FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY AND IS SCHEDULED FOR RETIREMENT ON MARCH 31, 2019.

The transition exam is intended for people who have already demonstrated skills in the content domain by passing the existing exam(s) that the new role-based certification exams will be replacing. They cover the delta between the current certification and what we expect people who earn the new certification to be able to do. We don’t want to retest people on the same content where they have already demonstrated competence by passing the existing exam.

Transition exams cover net new content, content that wasn’t covered in enough depth, and content on aspects of the technology that have likely changed since someone took the exam. As a result, the transition exam is not shorter than a typical exam but more focused on the key tasks and skills that were not assessed in the existing exam or certification that is being replaced.

Candidates for this exam are Azure Developers who design and build cloud solutions such as applications and services. They participate in all phases of development, from solution design, to development and deployment, to testing and maintenance. They partner with cloud solution architects, cloud DBAs, cloud administrators, and clients to implement the solution.

Candidates should be proficient in developing apps and services by using Azure tools and technologies, including storage, security, compute, and communications.

Candidates must have at least one year of experience developing scalable solutions through all phases of software development and be skilled in at least one cloud-supported programming language.
