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 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
 *Windows 8 development on Javascript & HTML5
 *Making money for your business: The Windows 8 store

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!

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.
