Passed the MS-101 on Sunday and I've outlined my upcoming track for the coming months and next year. I've still very excited about the future and what I can learn. Plus I have the full support of my wife and I'm truly humbled by how far I've come over the years. :smiley:

Been doing AVD at work now for well over a year, already finished with the self-paced and Azure Academy videos, doing ITPro.tv now.

    Congrats on the pass! 

    FWIW, two of your planned exams (SC-200 and SC-300) are included in MS's upcoming Cloud Skills Challenge:

    Free microsoft ignite challenge gets you a free MS cert exam voucher — TechExams Community (infosecinstitute.com) (I added the latest info as a new post at the bottom of that thread)

    You are going for the CISM and not the CISSP-ISSMP?
    Also, there's no guarantee the next revision of CASP+ will be preceded by a beta exam.

    so far into the future; its hard to tell if I'd truly want management or not, i may not even want CISM after 2 years, I might go an entirely different route like GIAC. GIAC or SANS certs as they are in that SANs booklet I get every year looks way more technically oriented than the CISM. I'd probably just get the CISM cause of the name grabber. 

    At that point in my career, it will be like the CASP+, a capstone certification. 

    As for CASP+, I know the exam creator and director of the program; there will be a beta in the next one. ;-)

    As for ignite, yes sir. I've already done the self-paced for 200 and 300, so I'm sure as soon as Nov 2nd dings, I'll get credit for it.
