Microsoft Technology Questions – Question 1

 

Finally, I found some time to start something new on my blog 🙂

This time, I’ve decided to start a serie of Microsoft Technology Questions (MTQ).  Its form may be familiar for many of you who did take a Microsoft official exam. This form is only one common thing with official Microsoft exam. I will defintively NOT publish official questions from the real exams here. So, those people who are looking for exact questions for Microsoft exams will be disappointed!

I’ll try to publish in a monthly basis one Microsoft technology related question invented by me. The question will be prepared by me, based on my experience and you won’t find it anywhere before it will be published here 🙂 So, do not search the Internet to find an answer 😉

After two weeks, I will update particular post with an answer, containing detailed explanation. I would like to start sharing knowledge with you using this form.

I hope you would love this idea and we will meet here regularly to learn something new! 🙂

Please feel free to discuss this idea and comment the question. I would love to hear if the idea is worth developing or not.

So, let’s start with the first question. The answer will be provided in two weeks from now.
