I'm a geekette who enjoys playing with new technology for software developers. I work as a Developer Evangelist for Microsoft. My current focus is on Windows Store development for Windows 8.
Students can create and publish a Windows 8 app by January 20 and win a $100 gift card! Take advantage of this promotion and some extra time over the holidays to get your app published.
