New Microsoft certifications passed

This summer my family and I spent almost three weeks driving to Germany and into Italy by car. Not just any car I might add. The old Volvo clicked in 4.000 km and handled it like a charm 🥰 even when it was super packed for the final stage of the journey from the duty free shop just across the border.

Main cities visited Nürnberg, Venice, Bologna, Brisighella, Comacchio… and obviously I had to make a stop at the Mutti field of tomatoes, as Mutti is a client of ours 🙂

Assorted Pictures from the vacation

Just before the vacation began, I got notice, that I had passed the two beta exams I attended in the middle of May. With beta exams you do not get the passing score immediately, you have to wait ’till the program has collected enough data on the individual questions/answers to release the final version of the test.

Microsoft Power Automate RPA Developer (PL-500)

First of I passed the Microsoft Power Automate RPA Developer (PL-500) exam, which was quite a stretch for me, and I had even raised some concerns about the scope of the test before, in the below announcement on LinkedIn:

Candidates for this exam automate time-consuming and repetitive tasks by using Microsoft Power Automate (formerly known as Flow). They review solution requirements, create process documentation, and design, develop, troubleshoot, and evaluate solutions.

Candidates work with business stakeholders to improve and automate business workflows. They collaborate with administrators to deploy solutions to production environments, and they support solutions.

Additionally, candidates should have experience with JSON, cloud flows and desktop flows, integrating solutions with REST and SOAP services, analyzing data by using Microsoft Excel, VBScript, Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), HTML, JavaScript, one or more programming languages, and the Microsoft Power Platform suite of tools (AI Builder, Power Apps, Dataverse, and Power Virtual Agents).
