Let’s hack Windows 8

By: Keith Loo, July 23, 2012

Now that Windows 8 is on the horizon, it’s about time we got together and did some hacking. With Windows 8 on track to Release to Manufacturing (RTM) the first week of August and reach general availability by the end of October, there is no time like the present to get in on the Metro action.

Join us in Vancouver, Ottawa, Toronto, and Montreal for some Windows 8 Hackathon action! 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!  Register now in your city immediately as the best seats are going fast:

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:

So, put on your hacking pants and join us in August!
