The Hackathons Are Back In Canada , Toronto

The Hackathons Are Back In Canada
In the past months we have announced Windows 8 Release Preview, Microsoft Surface, and even the new Office Customer Preview apps running on Windows 8 taking advantage of touch everywhere, inking, and included in Windows RT. With Windows 8 on track to Release to Manufacturing (RTM) the first week of August and reach general availability by the end of October, this is THE TIME to build Metro style apps. Even if you have been mostly doing web apps, it is easy enough to use HTML5 as your programming model in Windows 8.

We are announcing our Windows 8 Hackathons coming up in August! Come to our App Building with Windows 8 Hackathons with your laptop/device/desktop with Windows 8 and the developer tools already installed and you will:

  • Spend 8 hours with other developers and designers learning about creating apps based on mini-scenarios from Microsoft evangelists as well as learn about the Windows Store.
  • Have plenty of time to work on your own apps and have folks there to help answer questions you may have. We will keep presentations short so that you have more time to work on your app.
  • Find out how you can get free guidance by one of our Microsoft engineers for your app who can help make sure you have built the best quality app and enable a smoother transition into the Windows Store.
Space is limited but the event is FREE! Also, fans in Ottawa have been all over the internets asking when we will have a Hack-A-Camp there and we listened. Register now in your city immediately as the best seats are going fast:
Already building a Windows 8 app and want to get some guidance? Then let us know.
If you want to attend and have not had a chance to get familiar with Windows 8, we recommend you review the following before you come:
