    We are inviting the Silicon Valley startup community to a full-day, knockout, deep dive event taking place on our Silicon Valley Campus. Developers and designers alike will take the stage to show you how to take advantage of this new platform opportunity. Several startups will demo their brand new apps and talk about their early experiences developing for Windows 8, while the Microsoft team will provide attendees the opportunity to play with the platform and the tools needed to get started. Sessions will cover designing for the new Metro UI, building for the platform, and monetizing your apps.

    ATTEND A CAMP, BUILD AN APP
    Developer Camps (DevCamps for short) are free, fun, no-fluff events for developers, by developers. You learn from experts in a low-key, interactive way and then get hands-on time to apply what you've learned. Check out the four different DevCamps currently being offered and register today!

    CLOUD CAMP
    Join us to learn about the exciting new Windows Azure developer platform! Windows Azure will open up a host of new application and multi-screen development opportunities, and this briefing will give you a jumpstart in understanding how to take advantage of them.

    HTML5 Web Camp
    As developers, you keep hearing a lot about HTML5, but many don't know what it actually means or is truly capable of. If you want to learn about it, your choices are limited. The HTML5 Web Camp is an opportunity to connect with designers and developers and show you what's possible, and how you can start using it today. Space is limited.

    PHONE CAMP
    Take your apps to the next level at the Windows Phone Dev Camp. We'll be covering how to bring the cloud to your app by consuming external APIs, add UX polish with Expression Blend, reach new markets through globalization and localization, and keep your app running at peak performance through advanced debugging and testing. In the afternoon, we'll break into labs to reinforce what we covered, and offer a chance to present your application for a chance to win in our application competition.

    STUDENT PREP NIGHT
    If you're a student, interested in attending DevCamp (Phone Camp, particularly), we'd love to have you join us for a night of preparation and pizza! We want to be sure you have all the tools you need to be successful with the professional developer community.
