Hull Computer Science Blogs for Windows 8 now Available

Last week I got an email from Microsoft saying

Congratulations! Hull Computer Science Blogs, release 1 is now in the Windows Store. Use this link to your app’s listing in the Windows Store to let others know about your app.

Because we just added your app to the Windows Store, it might take some time before your customers will see it in their search results.

To track the performance of Hull Computer Science Blogs, open your Dashboard.

Keep up the good work!

Windows 8 | Elite Welcome Pack

I posted not too long ago about how, by submitting my Hull CS Blogs for Windows 8 App, I had joined the Windows 8 | Elite Program. On Saturday I had a parcel delivered and was pleasantly surprised to find it was a Windows 8 | Elite welcome pack!

Contained within were:

  • A Windows 8 Branded Pen
  • A Windows 8 Branded Pencil
  • A Windows 8 Branded 4GB Memory Stick
  • An Invitation to the Windows 8 Release party at Modern Jago in London on the 26th October
  • A Welcome Letter
  • And most interestingly a Windows 8 app design sketch pad, which I’ve used to plan UI enhancements to my app 🙂

Its a nice pack, especially considering the Windows 8 | Elite is totally free to join, as is the Windows Dev Centre if you’re a student, so my advice is to click here and get involved!
