@kacalapy, you want exams 70-433 and 70-451. See microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/cert-sql-server.aspx (in particular the MCTS and MCITP tabs).

comment Why do large IT projects tend to fail or have big cost/schedule overruns?
Agile is best when the customer does not know what they want. Companies are generally unwilling to spend the huge amounts that tend to get into newspapers on projects that are poorly defined.

comment Is functional programming actually used to create applications?
A fascinating and scary comment comes from the last line of the Wikipedia article on GOAL: "GOAL's primary development and maintenance engineer is no longer available to Naughty Dog, and so they are transitioning to a C++ based pipeline for future projects." Which means that they bet their company on one programmer and when he quit they don't know how to deal with the language/framework he wrote.
