Event Details

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 pre-Startup Weekend technical bootcamp.

This event focuses on Windows 8. We will discuss how you can leverage your existing skills to build killer apps for the Windows 8 Store. Topics include an introduction to Windows 8 design, an introduction to Visual Studio for Windows 8 Store apps and how to build Windows 8 Store apps using skills you already have. We will also discuss the new Window Store and the opportunity it represents for startups.

6-6:15pm | Short Introduction to Windows 8
6:15-7:15pm | Windows 8 design
7:15-8:15 | Windows 8 development
8:15 – 8:45 | All about the Windows 8 Store

Microsoft will be providing food & prizes

Note: Bring your Laptops!

Startup Weekend

Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. It is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs with over a thousand past events in 110+ countries around the world.

The non-profit organization is located in Seattle, Washington but Startup Weekend organizers and facilitators can be found in cities around the world. From Mongolia to South Africa to London to Brazil, people around the globe are coming together for weekend long workshops to pitch ideas, form teams, and start companies.

All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.
