Exam 70-564 - Pro: Designing and Developing ASP.NET Applications Using the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5

Me and two of my colleagues from Nansen, Christer Ottosson and Leif Boström  where at Tech-Ed EMEA  2008. Among all the interesting sessions, labs, swag frenzy and cola drinking we found out that there was a chance to get certified on place. A better thing Prior to our trip to TechEd EMEA 2008 Developers in Barcelona back in November, Gerry O'brien announced that Microsoft had released yet another public beta exam, “70-564 - Pro: Designing and Developing ASP.NET Applications Using the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5” and it was free! 

Well as a geek that doesn’t leave you so much of a choice, so we rolled up our sleeves and wrote the test.
The thing about beta certifications is that unlike an ordinary certification exam you don’t get to know if you passed the exam right away. You have to endure for two whole months before you can get an answer.

So how did it go? 
We just found out and, yes, you guessed right, all tree of us Passed!

Well just wanted to share this moment of relief.
