Event Details

Join us for the Windows 8 Weekend, a hackathon for building Windows 8 apps on May 18th!

Come join Microsoft development experts as we guide you through building an app and submitting it to the Windows 8 Store – all by day’s end! We will walk you through the steps of what it takes to build an app, opportunities for monetization and the steps for submitting it to the Windows 8 store. In addition, we will introduce you to a simple game development tool called Construct 2 in which Microsoft has partnered with to give budding game developers an easy and quick way to build games for Windows 8. Come May 18th and learn it all! And… by the end of the day, you’ll have something to show for it!

Not only that, but with the current Keep the Cash promotion from Microsoft, you can earn $100 for each of your apps that land in the store! (Details here.) Join us for the Windows 8 Weekend and we’ll help you put some $$$ in your pocket!
