Event Details

Here's your opportunity to try out the new Apps Frameworks to support cross-platform, Windows 8, Windows 8 Phone, iOS and Android. You'll get a chance to build amazing apps with experts from different app frameworks and Microsoft on hand to answer questions, plus awesome prizes for the best apps on Windows 8.
 
If you're a web programmer, you'll be able to build native apps using HTML5 and JavaScript.  If you just started on programming, don’t worry, we have app frameworks to get you started with no-coding experience required. Don't have Windows on your laptop? Microsoft will provide instruction/tools to let you run Windows 8 on your machine. We'll have sample apps, templates and ideas to get you started, and tech sessions on Friday evening to bring you up to speed on the app frameworks and SDKs.

Free meals and a chance for fame and great prizes for creating the next killer app... and there may even be prizes to every app demoer at the Hackathon.

We're excited to see what you all can build!

If you feel up to the challenge, please sign up now. Attendance is capped, so register soon -- all registrations are on a first-come-first-serve basis.
