New "Developing Windows Store Apps with HTML5 Jump Start" Course Now Released


The MVA team is pleased to announce the release of the new Developing Windows Store Apps with HTML5 Jump Start course.

About the Course

Of course, we know you’ve heard all the hype around Windows 8. While we’re thrilled at the reception Windows 8 is getting from the industry, analysts, partners and customers, we know you’re not going to just stop everything and become a believer in this “New Experience.” We get that you’re software developers and application architects who need to move beyond the hype and come face-to-face with what’s real. How different is it really? Are there any real reasons to accelerate or create plans to build apps for the Windows 8 platform? Why are developer communities reacting differently to this version of Windows? If these are the questions you’re asking, this Microsoft Jump Start is for you. The popular “Jump Start” virtual classroom experience leverages two experts and an engaging team-teaching approach.

We’re excited to introduce you to Jeremy Foster and Michael Palermo - two seasoned Microsoft Technical Evangelists with real world experience developing applications using a wide array of platforms and languages. Both Jeremy and Michael share a passion for creating powerful solutions leveraging HTML, CSS and JavaScript and are excited to dive into these topics together."

    Hi Carlos I. James Gutierrez

    I am an MSP and I've been trying to enter to the course but It says that this content is not available in my locale, I am from Colombia.

    Is there any workaround?

    Hi Edwin -

    We're working on creating links to English content when we haven't translated courses to your local language. If you'd like to take this course in English, you'll need to change the country you've got listed in your user profile to 'United States'.

    Give it a try.
