Today, I gave a talk about Windows 8 at the Technion, on behalf of Microsoft Israel. The presentation was part of Microsoft’s collaboration with the academic community. That was a 101 presentation which was focused mainly on the new features of Windows 8, and on how app authors should use them to write better apps. I wrapped things up with a quick, hands-on, demonstration.

One of the participants asked me how to remove unwanted app shortcuts from the All Apps screen. Here is a great blog post describing how to do it step by step.

Last, but not least, if you’re a student and would like to start developing for the windows store, you should check out DreamSpark, which allows you to use Microsoft’s tools for free.

I would like to thank everyone who attended. I enjoyed it very much and hope you feel the same.
