We will be hosting a 24 hour Windows 8 hackathon the Monday of TechEd, from 11:30am on Monday 10 September to 12:00pm on Tuesday 11 September 2012. Myself, many of the Developer Platform Evangelism (DPE) team and a great group of mentors will be camping out to help you build the best apps you can in the 24 hours.

You can get skilled up in Windows 8 apps, brainstorm ideas and code like there’s no tomorrow. Our expert mentors will work with you as you build your own Windows 8 app intended for the Store, rather than playing with sample applications.

How do you convince your boss?

  • "I can work on our unfinished app with assistance and advice from industry experts"; or
  • “Developing an app at this event will give me hands-on experience we can apply when I get back”

Your app could be the next big thing for the Windows Marketplace – it could earn you fame, riches or workplace glory.

Put your skills in the spotlight. Register now.
