About 3 weeks ago we welcomed over 50 developers at our offices in Zaventem for the second Windows 8 Summer App-a-thon (the first edition was in July in Blankenberge). A full day of Windows 8 coding, spread out over 2 sessions (Day & Night), with some fun activities in between (cocktail bar at 4PM, playing Kubbs in the park , … ) as well as tips & tricks to kickstart your apps.
You can find more pictures of the event here.
The attendees could also take part in a contest in which their app would be presented to a Microsoft jury looking at the following criteria:
-Creativity of the app & service -Technical architecture -Implementation of the Metro design principles -Windows Store potential
Today we’re happy to announce the winners! Congratulations go to …
