TRAINING: Windows 8 Hackathon – Los Angeles, Sept 15th

Windows 8 changes everything.
Combining the broad reach of Windows, best-in-class developer tools, a re-imagined user experience, support for new chipsets, and a built-in store with industry-leading business terms, Windows 8 is the largest developer opportunity – ever.

Our Hackathon is an open Windows 8 code fest, where you’ll put what you know into practice and be eligible to win some great prizes! Code to your heart’s content, with Windows 8 experts available to guide you through every step of the process. It’s the perfect opportunity to get your dream application underway, or to finish that app you’ve already started.

This full-day event will be filled with coding, sharing, plenty of food, and perhaps the occasional Lightning Talk on topics determined by your apps and questions. Bring your PCs installed with Windows 8 Release Preview, your apps and your cool ideas and get ready to create!
