Event Details

Join us for this special event to learn how to publish Windows 8 Apps to the App Store. Each App published will get you cash!

For this Publish-a-thon we will be publishing Apps built using Gamemaker.

Game Maker is an exciting new application that helps you create game applications without coding experience.

It’s cross platform but you MUST have Windows 8 and Visual Studio 2012 installed to build apps for Windows 8 and submit them to the Windows Store.

This Game Maker AppLab is a hand-on lab session. It is the perfect opportunity to get into app development. If you have been interested in building apps and looking for a way in, this is it.
