Event Details

Have you always dreamed of publishing an app in an app store?  Take some time before the craziness of the holidays and invest in yourself!  Whether an app development pro or a beginner without an idea for an application, we will help you make progress on an application and submit it to the Windows Store or Windows Phone Store. 

This day of Windows Store and Windows Phone app-building includes optional training on a game development tool which is great for all ages and allows you to quickly and easily create a fun, addictive game in a day!  You can also bring your own Windows Store app projects to work on, and proctors will be available to help you answer your questions.
