TrainSignal have a series of videos in which 60 Day Challenge founder, Michael Bender, explains how he developed this idea starting with the MCSE and how he envisions a community-based training framework.
I discovered the 60 Days to MCSE challenge a little too late to participate along with those who had planned to achieve their goal of passing all the necessary exams for the MCSE: Private Cloud certification.
I’m taking up the challenge but as I already have my MCSA: Windows Server 2008 and MCTS: Windows Server 2008 R2, Server Virtualization certifications I only need to pass the Exam 70-246: Monitoring and Operating a Private Cloud with System Center 2012 in order to become a MCSE: Private Cloud.
I don’t think that it is too much of a challenge to study for and pass this exam by the middle of August especially with the excellent resources available already from Microsoft.
– Microsoft Virtual Academy
– Microsoft Private Cloud Guided Labs
– Private Cloud Evaluation Guide (pdf)
– System Center 2012: Monitoring and Operations Tips and Advice (video)
Then after that perhaps the MCSE: Server Infrastructure
I’ll post about my progress and any other useful resources that I find, I’m sure that the videos of the TechEd sessions will soon be made available for example.
