Startup Weekend Auckland: Windows 8 Bootcamp
Friday, May 10, 2013 from 1:30 PM to 5:00 PM (NZST)
Auckland, New Zealand
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Microsoft New Zealand and Startup Weekend Auckland are joining forces to help developers and entrepreneurs become more successful!
We know that during a Startup Weekend event there isn't a lot of time to learn new things. You come in with the tools you have in your belt, and you do the best you can with those. But sometimes those tools aren't enough, which is why we're running this pre-Startup Weekend boot camp.
Come and get both a crash course and overview of Microsoft’s latest Operating System, Windows 8 along with Windows Phone 8 and Windows Azure (Microsoft's Cloud platform which may prove very useful during the weekend).
The boot camp is designed for both technical and non-technical audiences.
For the technically inclined, we’ll talk about some of the features that light up Windows 8, such as Live Tiles and Semantic Zoom.
For the non-technical folks, we’ll cover the business opportunities, global impact, and possibilities with a Windows 8 app in the Windows Store.
