Windows 8

Windows 8 Night

Tonight we will have a discussion of Windows 8 from several different points of view.

First Sean Kearney will talk about the new "Windows to Go" feature of Windows 8 Enterprise.

"Failures happen, site disasters occur, the unexpected happens when you least expect it. Sit back and relax as Windows 8 opens up options to enhance your Business Continuity Process with Windows to Go. Run your entire Desktop securely from a Windows 8 USB key. Laugh when disaster occurs. You'll be Ready"

Next, Bob Scarborough will discuss the nature and capabilities of the new "Windows 8 Style" apps (formerly called "Metro Style").  We'll contrast them with traditional desktop apps and talk about some of the new ways these apps access and share data, such as with the "Share Charm".

Bob Scarborough is a DotNet Developer and has been working on Windows 8 Apps for several months










 Finally, Max Yermakhanov will present:

“Simple ways to be productive on Windows 8 fast”.

Windows 8 is very different from its predecessors. No more Start menu, in comes the new touch-oriented Metro Start screen, new apps, new interface conventions - even experienced PC users may be left feeling a little lost. In this brief session we will cover a few tricks and tweaks administrators can use to improve their experience with Windows 8 and streamline processes in the workplace…”

Max Yermakhanov is a senior IT Consultant & Trainer at Objectsharp.
