Dates Set for Visual Studio 2010 Exam Design

October and November will be busy months around here as we start design on the Visual Studio 2010 exams.  These sessions will be a little different than what we did for VS2008 as we are working with our Portfolio Design team on a combined effort using our USD 3.0 processes.

USD stands for Unified Skills Domain and its main purpose is to ensure alignment across the entire portfolio for exams and training.  The sessions create an exam design known as an Object Domain(OD) and a complete portfolio document set, the USD.  The OD goes on to be the guidance for exam writers to create content for the exam and the USD goes on to be guidance for content writers for training.

This is a great mechanism for creating content and exam designs that are in sync and benefit our customers and trainers.  If you are an expert on any of the below topics and are available during the indicated dates, drop me a reply.  We are recruiting for Subject Matter Experts to help in these sessions.  If you are expert in these areas, get in touch.
