About 4 weeks ago we welcomed over 40 developers at our offices in Zaventem for the fourth edition of the Windows 8 App-a-thon in Belgium (previous editions in March, July and August). 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 games on handmade Windows 8 branded diceboxes , … ). Next to tips & tricks to kickstart your apps, we also introduced an Idea Fling in which we presented 3 ready-to-start app ideas (some of which were already showcased during the demofest!). This did not go unnoticed to the press either: we welcomed a number of Belgian tech journalists and Kanaal Z shot this nice video report (featuring Katrien De Graeve and Luc Van de Velde). Note: the video is in Dutch.
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 Windows design principles -Windows Store potential
Today we’re happy to announce the winners! Congratulations go to …
