I have left Microsoft and this blog is no longer under my control. All of the content should remain for some time however and any new updates can be found at http://davedev.net.

In addition to the great Windows 8 Camps and MSDN Metro Style Dev Webcasts there are some additional free events coming your way! The Metro Accelerator Labs are free, three day events designed to ramp you up on what it means to write a Metro Style App for Windows 8 and Windows Phone.
If you are a developer that has been tinkering with an app this is your opportunity to create something amazing. These will be three full days of lab time so be prepared to code and bring your laptop! If you don’t have the Windows 8 Consumer Preview or Developer Tools installed be sure to get them.
This is what the day will look like:
There are going to be four events happening on the East Coast US:
May 30 – June 1 Tampa, FL Register
June 5-7 Alpharetta, GA Register
June 6-8 Waltham, MA Register
June 11-13 Orlando, FL (at TechEd) Open to all TechEd Attendees – just drop in!
