Event Details

Microsoft Windows 8 and Startup Weekend 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 technical bootcamp.

This event focuses on Windows 8. We will discuss how you can leverage your existing skills to build killer apps for the Windows 8 Store. Topics include an introduction to Windows 8 design, an introduction to Visual Studio for Windows 8 Store apps and how to build Windows 8 Store apps using skills you already have. We will also discuss the new Window Store and the opportunity it represents for startups.

6-6:15pm | Short Introduction to Windows 8
6:15-7:15pm | Windows 8 design
7:15-8:15 | Windows 8 development
8:15 – 8:45 | All about the Windows 8 Store

Microsoft will be providing food & prizes

Note: Bring your Laptops!
