My question is: When will be the certifications ready for the developer track?

For the Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer (MCSD) in SharePoint you will need to pass 4 exams. Two of them are SharePoint focused, and two of them are from the MCSD: Web Application part.

SharePoint Focused:

70-488: Developing Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 Core Solutions - Exam Objectives

70-489: Developing Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 Advanced Solutions - Exam Objectives

Web Focused:

70-480: Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3 - Exam Objectives (PS: You can take this exam for free at the moment. more info HERE) TBD

70-486: Developing ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Applications - Exam Objectives

The beta of the 70-488 and 70-489 exams should be available in the first week of April and run until the exams go "live" the first week in July.
