One of the interesting things about participating in a beta program is that not all the bugs are figured out. For those who participated in the three month accelerated data science program that finished on August 26, 2016, we finally received our certificates today. I have no idea what the significance of the November date on the certificate means, but I am just happy to be a Charter Member of the Microsoft Professional Program. Believe me, it was not easy. If you would like to participate in the program, you can sign up here.
