Windows 8 is going to be a big change for a lot of people. Microsoft is of course doing a lot to help people prepare for this. As part of this effort Microsoft is running a set of anchor events to help developers get started learning how to create new Metro-style apps. These all day events are free! If you are near one of these locations you may want to think about a professional development day. (Or a field trip?) Registration is free but required. BTW I’m headed to the one in New York. Hope to see you there.

Windows reimagined.

Learn everything you need to start building Metro-style apps for Windows today at our free, full-day Windows Developer Event.

We'll show you how to use Visual Studio to code fast, fluid, immersive and beautiful Metro-style applications in HTML5/JavaScript, XAML/C# and C/C++. Your investments in these languages carry forward, making Windows a no-compromise platform for developers.

Whatever language you choose, your app gets deep integration with the Windows shell, including notifications, live tiles, deep links, and contracts with other apps. And now you can build once and support all Windows customers, no matter what type of PC they have—from tablets to laptops to convertibles to desktops.

Seating is limited and registration is not guaranteed. Secure your spot today!
