Great news for developers! Now you can get your own Windows developer account. The store is officially open in 120 markets (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia & UAE are included :) )

And it gets better, Microsoft announced special offers:

  • All eligible MSDN subscribers receive a free, one-year Windows Store developer account
  • We have a program for students—DreamSpark—that similarly waives the subscription fee
  • An offer for businesses in our BizSpark program, as well

Go to the Windows Store Dashboard on the Windows Dev Center and sign up, we are looking for your apps :)
