Join me for a Windows 8.1 Jump Start

Next week, I’ll be up in Redmond participating in a live Microsoft Virtual Academy event:

What’s New in Windows 8.1 for IT Professionals Jump Start

November 14, 2013

10:00am-5:00pm PST

If you’re an IT pro responsible for deploying Windows in your organization, I encourage you to tune in. I’ll be asking some Microsoft experts about some hot-button topics—security, mobility, and manageability—as they apply to Windows 8.1.

Thanks to the miracle of live demos, you’ll have a rare opportunity to see a lot of these technologies in action without having to build your own test infrastructure.

If you want a preview of some of the topics we’ll be discussing, I encourage you to download my latest ebook, Introducing Windows 8.1 for IT Professionals. It’s free, and available in PDF, Mobi (for Kindle), and EPUB formats.


Got a burning question you want me to ask? Please send it along, either in the comments of this post or via the contact form at the top of the page, and I’ll do my best to make sure it’s covered.

Disclosure: I’m being compensated by Microsoft for my appearance in this event. As always, however, all opinions expressed are my own, and there are no restrictions on what I can say or ask.

  1. I work for a school district in Hillsborough county, Tampa,Fl, and we’re actually the 8th largest school district in the nation. We are moving forward and are deploying Win8 with new computers, mainly with new tablet type machines, but nonetheless Win8. However we need a way to get software or apps from the store without having to require each student or employee, we have about 150,000 employees and students, have a MSFT account. We use a full 2008 active directory domain and just really want to install some of the free apps in the Win8 store. I mean we can’t even direct a student to install the PDF reader in the store unless they provide a MSFT account. There’s a way to do a company store but you can’t distribute apps without having the appx file and its certificate. There needs to be another way for EDU .
