Completed: Microsoft Security Fundamentals MTA Exam

Today I took and passed the Microsoft Security Fundamentals MTA exam. This is the fifth MTA I have taken since February. The next test I plan on taking is the Networking Fundamentals MTA. After that exam it’s onto the app dev series of exams. These MTA’s lead to the Microsoft Certified Software Developer certification. The exam topics include HTML5, .NET, Software Testing and several others.

Completed: Two More Microsoft MTA Exams

Today I took and passed the following two Microsoft MTA exams:

  • 98-363: Microsoft Web Development Fundamentals (C#)
  • 98-364: Microsoft Database Administration Fundamentals

This makes a total of four Microsoft MTA exams that I have taken. I plan on taking the Networking Fundamentals and Security Fundamentals exams next week. After those two I will take the HTML5 and .Net exams.

OneNote Now on Mac and Free

When we started OneNote we set out to revolutionize the way people capture, annotate, and recall all the ideas, thoughts, snippets and plans in their life. As many of you have attested, OneNote is the ultimate extension for your brain, but it’s not complete if it’s not instantly available everywhere. We’ve already made a lot of progress in that direction with our mobile, tablet and online web experiences. But there was still a gap. People frequently asked us for OneNote on Mac, and for more ways to capture content.

Remove HTML from Excel Files

Occasionally I will have an Excel file that contains HTML markup that I need to remove. The Excel Replace feature makes removing HTML easy. To remove the HTML tags highlight the cells that contain the HTML and then select Edit > Replace. In the “Find what” field enter <*>. Leave the “Replace with” field blank and then click on the “Replace All” button. Poof! All of your HTML will magically be removed.
