Ready? Set? Go! Windows 8 Store now Open to All – Microsoft UK Students

Come one come all – submissions to the Windows Store are now open to all developers! And guess what? For students, that access comes at no cost. Just like the Windows Phone Marketplace, you can free and paid for apps as a student without having to buy a developer registration, and get all the other benefits around in app purchasing and advertising right out of the box. Ok, so it doesn’t come in a box. But you know what we mean.

On top of this ‘big announcement’ we???re also announcing a number of additional subscription program offerings that recognize and thank developers for their interest and commitment to Windows. All eligible MSDN subscribers receive a free, one-year Windows Store developer account as part of their MSDN benefits. (Eligible subscriptions include Visual Studio Professional, Test Professional, Premium, Ultimate, and BizSpark.). So even if you’re getting ready to leave education and start your own business, or go work in the technology industry, you’re covered.
