Is there any pure C# certifcate, I searched a lot of C# Certificate but I found most of the Microsoft certificates are retired or about to retire.
If I want to prove my ability in C# what Certification should I take?
We’re not too deep on what certifications there are for C# or what the roadmap is for that and other related certifications. A good place to start would the folks on the C# Blog here or you can look at the Developer Certifications here.
MS has moved away from programming-specific certifications and products. Rather than certifying for products they focus on positional certifications related to their products. For example if you’re a DBA then there are SQL certifications for that. If you’re a dev then they are completely focused on Azure so all the certs are related to that. They have more certs for sysadmins than developers given that sysadmins have to work with different sets of software like Exchange and Windows but all are still positional based in my experience.
