Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3 - Free Microsoft Exam Voucher

This is not related to SharePoint, but I am always keen on catching up my coding skills with the latest technologies since caught up with .NET in year 2000.  Recently, I passed a new Microsoft exam: 70-480 Programming in HTML 5 with JavaScript and CSS3.  From what I learnt, HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3 is a promising web technology with impressive features and is becoming a de-facto standard in web application development world. 

Though I don't have to write code for my job anymore, playing around with new tools and technologies is my great interest.
Last year, I also explored and worked on my personal mobile web application project using ASP .NET MVC 4 mobile application template and jQuery Mobile framework.  I can say that these emerging technologies are all fantastic and greatly recommended. 

There is a free HTML5 exam voucher offered by Microsoft in case you haven’t heard of it and interested to be certified as well.  You can go to this link to get the free voucher: Not sure when it will expire though.
You can also take the free online course Developing in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3 Jump Start for your exam preparation
