Event Details

Here's your opportunity to try out the new Windows 8 Platform working with Facebook. You'll get a chance to build amazing social experiences with experts from both Facebook and Microsoft on hand to answer questions, plus awesome prizes for the best hacks.
 
Don't speak .NET? No problem. If you're a web programmer, you'll be able to build native apps using HTML5 and JavaScript. Don't have Windows on your laptop? Microsoft will provide tools to let you run Windows 8 on your machine. We'll have sample apps and ideas to get you started, and tech sessions on Friday evening to bring you up to speed on the SDK and on Facebook's APIs.
 
We're excited to see what you all can build!

 

Event proceeds will be donated to the American Red Cross to aid in relief efforts for Hurricane Sandy.
