Windows 8 Unleashed
A Full Day of Hands-On Programming, B.Y.O. Laptop!
Windows 8 is the single biggest opportunity for developers EVER!
Come to a “Windows 8 Unleashed” event to kick-start your Windows 8 development. “Windows 8 Unleashed” is a series of FREE events run by your local community friends and leaders, and are great whether you are an experienced .NET developer, or even if you are just getting started.
This event will be unlike other Windows 8 Unleashed events as we will be covering BOTH Windows 8 Store Apps and Windows Phone 8 Apps.
We’ll spend the morning in lecture and hands on labs. Half way through, you’ll get a chance to take what you learned in the morning and compete in a hackathon with a chance to win some great prizes!
Required Software and Downloads
Please make sure to get the required software and downloads BEFORE coming to the event. You can find everything you need on the “Windows 8 Unleashed Installs” page. Make sure you review the Hands On Labs before the event so you can get up to speed faster.
