Dear Readers,

Greetings, albeit in a somewhat different format than you've seen this newsletter in previously. As a result of the Microsoft Press/O'Reilly alliance, you'll see your monthly Microsoft Press newsletter delivered in a new template, but with the same care and effort toward your interests as has always been.

It's been ten months since the Dec 1st 2009 go-live date, when O'Reilly and Microsoft Press began its strategic alliance, and we're glad to say everything has been going great: The team at Microsoft and the O'Reilly team are working tightly together to grow the number of resources you'll have available for using Microsoft tools and technologies... there's a lot to look forward to as we move forward.

Steve Weiss, Associate Publisher & Ben Ryan, Publisher

New Microsoft Technology Associate Certification Launched

On July 7, 2010 at the Education Leaders Forum Microsoft announced a new certification program for fundamental Information Technology and development skills called the Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA). Unlike more advanced Microsoft certifications, the MTA targets students with no prior IT or development experience or employment. It is available exclusively in educational settings and is designed to easily integrate into the curricula of existing computer classes. The MTA will eventually be available in thousands of high schools, vocational programs, and colleges in the U.S. and other countries. Testing will be conducted by Certiport, a commercial testing service, at participating schools. Read more.

Visit the MTA website (and click here to view the Microsoft PressPass feature). The program's FAQs are here.
