One announcement and two notes. 

a1. At TechEd Australia, we gave hats to people who passed exams on site... then we took a group photo on the last day. A group certified photo might sound a little odd, but it actually was one of the most fun things we did all day. As soon as I get a copy of the photo I'll poast it here... haven't seen anything yet. hang tight, with panties unbunched, until further notice.

n1. We got new cert numbers and will update the #s certified page in the next few weeks. In the meantime, you might like to know that there are:

  • 647 MCPD: Windows Developers
  • 153 MCITP: Enterprise Messaging Administrators
  • 2,871 MCITP: Database Administrators
  • 928 MCTS: Business Desktop Deplyment (exam 70-624 check it out)

n2. Andrew Coates, content owner for TechEd Aus posted his thoughts on his MCPD certs*, check it.

*It is purely coincidence that I am directing you to a post that also says something ncie about me. Don't mind me, the self-promoter.
