Jeremy Foster and I had no idea what kind of response resulted from presenting our free training course to prepare for the 70-480 exam. For example, who knew that our shirts (purchased from the Microsoft Store the day prior) would become so popular, people contacting both of us wondering where they could buy one?
That said, the real story is in the successful outcomes of those who watched the videos and then subsequently passed the exam. Even more impressive to me personally is that some already have apps submitted to the Windows Store! (Do you have an app in the store? If not, consider 30,000 reasons why you should submit your app now!)

Please be part of my app experiment. I recently submitted my first app to the Windows Store, and I want you to be involved. No, I am not asking for you to pay for it, because it is free.

And how can you benefit from getting involved?

Want to understand how he did it? Well thankfully he has generously made this public knowledge and you can read all about it at his blog!
Time for me to get my apps submitted! BTW, if you have your own app success story, please contact me and tell me about it!
I am heading to CES in Las Vegas, NV today. This will be my first time going. I have always wanted to go, especially since it has been considered the Super Bowl of new technology. The Bing homepage showed CES as a trending term, so I checked it out. I came across an article entitled “Why We’re Not At The Biggest Tech Show In The World” and was intrigued by the following quote:
