    Creating the Windows 8 To Go USB Device:

    1. Windows To Go requires a specific partition setup in order to function. We will use diskpart to create the new partition setup. Launch an administrative level command prompt from the Start Screen.
    2. Make sure that your USB Drive is plugged in and then type in diskpart and hit Enter.
    3. Then list the available disks by running "list disk" and you should see your usb device.
    4. Select your USB drive by typing "select disk #" and hit Enter.
    5. Clean the partitions on the disk by typing "clean" and hit Enter.
    6. Now create the partition by running the following command:
      create partition primary
    7. Select and format the new boot partition by running the following command:
      format fs=ntfs quick
    8. Set the partition active by typing "active" and hit Enter.
    9. Exit Diskpart by typing Exit.
      10.Now double click the Windows 8 ISO you downloaded to mount it in Windows 8. Browse to the ISO files in Windows Explorer and copy \sources\install.wim to the same folder as you copied Imagex.exe.
      1. Identify the drive letter assigned to your USB drive by Windows Explorer and run the following command from the folder that contains Imagex.exe and install.wim:
        imagex.exe /apply install.wim 1 d:\
        Replace d with the drive letter of your USB drive.)
      2. Once the image has applied you need to setup the boot record on the USB Drive. At the administrative level command prompt run:
        bcdboot.exe d:\windows /s d: /f ALL
        (Replace d with the drive letter of your USB drive.)
      After the command has completed running you are ready to use your new Windows To Go USB device

    I wanted to do some development in Windows 8 by creating apps in it, Is that possible to do?
    Yes, it is possible to develop apps for windows too , similar to like people develop apps in Android & iOS.

    How to do it? From where to start the study and start to design the application for Windows 8?
    The coding for apps is done Visual Studio. Programming can be either c# or C++.

    You should first be perfect with these above mentioned programming languages.
    After that start with some easy tutorials.

    Here i am giving the link of some good tutorials :

    Along with the consumer version Microsoft also released Windows Developer Preview(build 8102) of Windows 8 for developers to download and start working. This developer preview includes tools for building Metro Style apps, such as Microsoft Windows SDK for Metro style applications, Microsoft Visual Studio 11 Express for Windows 8 Developer Preview and Microsoft Expression Blend 5 developer preview.

    Since you will be developing Windows applications you must be familiar with some of the basic programming languages such as C,C++,Java,VB.NEt,C# etc. The tools you would download contain a rich library of functions (APIs ) to make your job easy.
    For specific details you can refer Microsoft's website for developers:

    msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/apps/br229512

    This site contains sample codes,tutorials,videos,documentation,etc. and all the things you may need in developing Windows Applications.

    Happy Coding!!!

    Actually Windows 8 is latest Operating system develop by Microsoft
    so all the platform for application development does not support it.

    you did not mention that in which language you want to develop your
    application. If you develop application in visual studio then it is ok, you
    can do it but many other platform like Netbin does not support it.

    You can develop window application but face some problem to develop
    android application.
    You will also face problem to running Turbo C or C++ on windows 8.
    For running it you will need Dos box. Without Dos box you can not nut
    this in properly.

    yes my friend....you can create your own applications in windows 8.

    The popular developer applications in windows 8 are windows live and visual studio.

    You can download these two from internet or from microsoft windows store.

    So first you should watch some you tube video's regarding developing apps in windows and then you should start on your own.
