Beginners and experts, come learn, build, and publish an app for Windows 8. Win cash prizes!
If you've never programmed for Windows 8, you are in for a treat. The tools and libraries are the best available of any platform.
If you have programmed for Windows 8, this is your opportunity to take your skills to the next level. Maybe you need to learn more about MVVM. Perhaps you need to call HTTP services.
Come join us Saturday for a workshop, hackathon, and app competition. The morning labs will help the beginners get up to speed with the tools and design principles. The afternoon labs will help experienced Windows 8 developers brush up on advanced topics. Participate in the labs that you need, and use the rest of the time to code.
Spend the day coding a new Windows 8 app, or completing an app idea that you've already started. Form teams, or work independently. Our experts are there to assist you. Present your app at the end of the day for a chance to win one of these prizes:
|First place||$500 gift card|
|Second place||$200 gift card|
|Third place||$100 gift card|
Only apps that have not yet been published are eligible. So come spend the day and build an app with us.
