New Windows 8 Store Apps Development with C# 6 days Course

January 14, 2013


Recently, I’ve been working hard, developing a new Windows 8 Store Apps 6 days Course for C# developers.

Today I was very proud to deliver it to one of John Bryce customers, at Hi-Tech College, Herzliya, and it was a great beginning.

The course is very detailed and practical, just like I did with a previous 6 days WPF course I’ve developed. Different content, different college, but same mini-Me J.

So if you’ve enjoyed previous sessions with me, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this course either, now with CodeValue.
