Microsoft Windows 8 and Startup Weekend are joining forces to help developers and entrepreneurs become more successful!
We know that during a Startup Weekend event there isn't a lot of time to learn new things. You come in with the tools you have in your belt, and you do the best you can with those. But sometimes those tools aren't enough, which is why we're running this Startup Weekend technical workshop.
Windows 8 has already sold 40M licenses in its first month and it's a great opportunity for startups like you to build your business on it! Join us for the FREE workshop that provides you tools and resources to get you started on the path to success!
*Short introduction to Windows 8
*Making money for your business: The Windows 8 store
We're excited to see what you all can build!
