Inhalte der Zertifizierung Administering Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2012 (70-496)

Freitag, 15. Februar 2013

Microsoft hat mit der Team Foundation Server 2012 Version die ALM Zertifizierung erweitert. Die bisherige ALM Zertifizierung zur Administration (70-512) wird um zwei Zertifizierungen zu Testing (70-497) und Continuous Delivery (70-498) erweitert. Durch die erfolgreiche Zertifizierung in allen drei Bereichen sind auch die Anforderungen für den mit dem TFS 2012 neu eingeführten Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer (MCSD) ALM erfüllt.

Dieser Blog Artikel geht auf die Inhalte der Zertifizierung für die Team Foundation Server Administration ein und liefert einen Leitfaden zur Vorbereitung auf die Prüfung 70-496.

Hinweis: Die folgenden Themenbereiche können unter anderem Bestandteil der Zertifizierung sein, müssen aber nicht zwingend in dieser Form darin vorkommen. Die Hauptgebiete

  • Installing and Configuring Team Foundation Server
  • Manage Team Foundation Server
  • Customize Team Foundation Server for Team Use
  • Administer Version Control

der Prüfung, werden jeweils mit ca. 25 Prozent zum Gesamtumfang der Prüfung gewichtet. Die nachfolgende Auflistung ist in Englisch gehalten. Generell sollten Sie auch die Zertifizierung in Englisch durchführen, da es sonst zu Missverständnissen in den Begrifflichkeiten des TFS geben kann. Teilweise verweisen die Links noch auf Dokumentationen und Artikel zu Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010 – hier liegen zum Zeitpunkt der Erstellung des Artikels noch keine aktuelleren Dokumente vor.
