Build your one-of-a-kind Windows app at the free Gen Appathon event on November 9th.
Join thousands of developers just like you on November 9, 2012 for the world's largest code fest – Gen Appathon. Here's your chance to get down to business and start building your dream app, or polish up the last lines of code on that app you've already started. This event is an open hackathon, where you'll put all your coding skills into practice. Code to your heart's content, with experts available for one-on-one consultation to guide you through every step of the process. And did we mention that it's free?

There's never been a better time to build apps.

Windows 8 is set to launch, hardware manufacturers are readying new devices, and millions of consumers are expected to upgrade. We can't guarantee your success, but releasing a first-of-its-kind app in the Windows Store can't hurt your reputation – or your bottom line.

This full-day event will be filled with coding, sharing, plenty of food, and the occasional Lightning Talk on topics determined by your apps and questions. Bring your own laptop (for recommended system specs, click on the city nearest you), your apps and your best ideas, and get ready to create!

Prizes will be awarded for best Win 8 app, best Windows Phone app, and best use of Azure. Register today and join us for this fantastic (and free) developer opportunity.
