Event Details

Hosted by ThinkData Solutions, Inc,  Presented by Todd Miranda, MVP and Glen Gordon, Microsoft.

 

The hack-a-thon will start with an hour or two of instructive material on building Windows Store Applications for Windows 8. The rest of the day will be for you to dig in and start building the next big Windows 8 app. Take advantage of onsite resources, team up or go it alone. Do you have an idea for an application?  Do you have a startup that would like to target the Windows 8 platform? Then you need to be here.  This is an ideal opportunity. There will be people there that have built Windows 8 applications and submitted them to the store. They will be there to help mentor and answer questions. That is a free resource that you may not have access to otherwise.

 

After the training session, it’s time to jump in and build an app. Design, code and test your way to an awesome creation. Team up or go it alone. Draw upon the myriad of resources available online and in the room from the experts who are there to advise and guide you. At the end of the event, we’ll have a special meeting of the Birmingham .NET User Group, where we’ll cover the basics of Windows 8 app development. Then comes the AppOff, where the individuals or teams who built apps during the day will show off their creation and win prizes from gift cards to Windows 8 tablets!

To All Hackers:

From the Desk of Todd Miranda:

To develop for Windows 8 will need to be running Windows 8.  You can run VS2012 on Windows 7 but can’t develop Windows 8 apps unless you are on Windows 8.


****We can help with installs the day of for those who need it, but bring your license key and remember if you prepped before hand you have more time to hack.****

 

At ThinkData we love to feed people so be prepared for breakfast & afternoon deli delightfullness from the Culinard and lunch is a special treat from John's City Diner! See you at the Hack! Check in at the Front Desk!

Don't forget to post about it and tweet!
