Join The Movement: The HTML5mtl + MWNW Hackathon!


Join the Hackathon!

Do you have an awesome WordPress site? Do you love building great apps? Are you an HTML5, JavaScript, or CSS3 genius? Do you love good food and better drinks? Do you want a FREE Xbox and Surface? If you answered yes to any of the above – then you should join us at Gallery Gora in Montreal on December 1 for the MWNW Hackathon!


Join us for a one-day, intense hackathon with two options:

  1. Turn your WordPress site into a Windows 8 application with the help of an open source template that is both quick and easy to deploy.
  2. Build your own Windows 8 app from scratch.

Whether you’re coming solo or bring a team, you’ll have access to experts who will be able to help you throughout the day. A snack and a dinner are offered for free. And of course, a bar service will be available as well, with two free drinks on us! Isn’t it wonderful? And by the way, we have some really, really awesome prizes for top apps developed during the day (including Xboxes and a Surface!).

So, join us to learn, create, and take advantage of deploying an application to the new version of Windows. Coding and fun guaranteed!

Q: Is the event free?

A: Yes, and it includes a snack, a dinner, and two tickets for a free beer or a glass of wine (more drinks or other type of drinks are available via the cash bar).

Q: Do I absolutely need to present my application at the end of the day?

A: Of course not, but keep in mind that you don’t have to present a finished application in front of others. Present only what you were able to do in that time.

Q: Where is the event?

A: Gallery Gora @ 279 Sherbrooke Ouest, #205, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, H2X 1Y2

Q: What do I need to bring with me to participate?

A: A computer with Windows 8, and the SDK in addition of your coding skills. We also highly suggest you to create a Windows Store account so you’ll be able to reserve the application name you had in mind, and be able to deploy as soon as you’ll need to.

Q: I don’t have any application ideas, can I come either?

A: Of course as you could find inspiration from others developers, and we can help you brainstorm and find the perfect idea for you.

Q: I don’t have any experience with Windows 8 with HTML/CSS/JavaScript, is this an event for me?

A: Yes! Even if hackathons are made to code, we welcome everyone who wants to learn. We will have tutorials that you will be able to follow step-by-step to help you understand, and create applications for Windows 8. You can already start to do them at home.

Q: I prefer to create Windows 8 application with C++/XAML or C#/XAMP, can I join you?

A: No problem, join us for the hackathon. The only thing is that we cannot guarantee that we will have experts for these technologies on site to help you.
