So what does that mean? I don’t really know yet. The program just started, I just signed up.
What DO I know?
I have been using SkyDrive for a while. I’ve recommended it as a great solution to our high school several times over the last several years. I think “cloud” is the way to go, though we’ve all been cloud for a longtime, but since no one told us it was a cloud, we never realized it (hello Atari GameLine in 1983).
I have recently moved my primary dev machine to Windows8, built-in SkyDrive. SkyDrive on my Surface. SkyDrive on my Windows 8 phone. Still getting around to putting it on my other two computers, a Windows 7 laptop and desktop. I will get there.
I know I have much to learn and that is part of my motivation of signing up for the Insider program. It looks to be a group of techies and not--so-techies, we’re volunteers, not employees. Watch for blog posts here about it as I learn more for myself and from others.
Goal 1: Get SkyDrive on all of my machines and set-up local sync of stuff that I would need offline access to.
