We’re excited about the reception Windows 8 is getting from the industry, analysts, partners and customers. At the same time, we get that you’re busy IT professionals with tons of pressure and responsibilities. You need to move beyond the hype and clearly understand how this new platform might enable you to improve your organization. Beyond the new UI, are there any real improvements for IT? How will Windows 8 make IT and the rest of the organization better? Why is the industry reacting differently to this version of Windows? If these are the types of questions you’re asking, this Microsoft Jump Start is for you.

Instructors | We’re especially excited to bring you a fantastic instructor team for this Jump Start. Microsoft Senior Product Marketing and Community Manager, Stephen Rose and Senior Technical Evangelist Joey Snow are two of the most popular and well-respected technologists around and share a passion for helping IT professionals increase value.
