  • Hello Malick,

    There is no any VSTO specific certification. SharePoint and VSTO are entirely different things. I can't suggest any closest thing except C# or VB.NET common certifications because VSTO add-ins are written in C# or VB.Net mostly. So, learning .Net and any of managed programming languages is a way to go.

  • Malick,

      I think at this time, the closest thing you can find is this.

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/learning/mcsd-sharepoint-apps-certification.aspx

    Since Office development and SharePoint are closely linked, this would be the closest certification.  I have not heard of a MCSD for office development specifically yet.

  • Daniel,

    Could you please explain how VSTO and SharePoint "are closely linked"?

  • Thank you Eugene ,I agree with you;  it seems to me that the Exam 70-483 (Programming in C#) is the closest MCP certification to VSTO , do you think so ?
