Microsoft Certified Application Developer

This stands for Microsoft Certified Application Developer, a credential that provides industry recognition for professional developers who build powerful applications using Microsoft Visual Studio® .NET and Web services.

Choose the MCAD credential if you develop, test, deploy, and maintain department-level applications, components, Web or desktop clients, or database and network services using Microsoft tools and technologies.

The MCAD credential was created in response to industry demand for a certification that allows developers to show they have the skills necessary to successfully implement functional specifications and build, deploy, and maintain Microsoft Windows® and Web applications.

Achieving the MCAD credential can be a step toward earning the MCSD credential for advanced developers.

Examples of your target job titles include:

To fulfill the core certification requirements, pass one exam focused on either Web Application Development or Windows Application Development in the language of your choice and one XML Web Services and Server Components exam. In addition to the core exam requirements, you must also pass one elective exam that provides proof of expertise with a specific Microsoft server product.
