Microsoft Retires NT 4.0 MCSE Exams
  This issue of W2Knews™ contains:
Hi NT-ers,

There are two important points we wanted to bring to your
attention. The first one is for Europe especially. If you 
develop for Windows, you should _really_ check out this
immediately.

1) GO TO THE TOP EUROPEAN WINDOWS DEVELOPERS SUMMIT

"Last call to register for WinSummit'99. WinSummit'99 is 
the European Developers' Summit held October 4th - 8th in
the conference center of DAVOS, Switzerland. WinSummit'99 
offers the participants a unique opportunity to increase 
their programming knowledge of Microsoft Windows. It offers 
130 sessions grouped in eight different tracks on the most 
actual and demanded Windows topics. The sessions are delivered 
exclusively by 30 of the developer's favorite speakers who 
are worldwide known experts and book authors". 

This summit is THE place to get all the latest and important
data to get your job done. (and get a taste of the gorgeous Alps)

2) MICROSOFT RETIRES NT 4.0 MCSE EXAMS

Microsoft just announced their Windows 2000 Certification
program. It means that a whole bunch of the NT 4.0 exams will
be retired, and a whole slew of new ones will arrive.

These new Win2K exams will have new testing methods, like
simulations and item seeding. Donna Senko (MS director of 
the certification and skills assessment group) explained this
at MCP TechMentor in San Francisco. To listen to her keynote
presentation, visit the MCP Website and check out this:

There is more about the new Windows 2000 track exam details, 
and an FAQ. You can get more detail at the Microsoft's MCP Web 
site at http://www.microsoft.com/mcp. 

To find out which of your certifications are scheduled for 
retirement (sigh) when Windows 2000 exams are released, go to
http://www.microsoft.com/mcp/examinfo/retired.htm.
