GET STARTED DEVELOPING FOR WINDOWS 8 WINDOWS PHONE AZURE WITH APP BUILDER
Zack Williamson is kicking off St Pete College's year with a Learn / Build / Play event being held at the Microsoft office on Saturday, October 19, from 930A to 530P.
But this is not just for students. Got people looking to spend a day playing with Win8 Dev or GameMaker, you may want to consider dropping by.
The format will be an open app/game hackathon and HBO viewing party. Zack Williamson, the SPC Microsoft Student Partner, and Joe Healy will be there to answer any questions you may have and provide guidance for building your new Windows 8 or Windows Phone app/game.
Joe will show off "Windows 8 Games Using GameMaker" and Zack will offer up App Publishing tips and tricks. Lectures will be in the morning. Don't want to listen? Sit and code and have some fun.
And while you're hacking away at the next killer app, we'll also be showing off some of the awesome features of Xbox Live, most notably some of the great programming you can access via the HBO GO app. So come hang out for a day of learning, coding, and fun, sponsored by Microsoft and HBO!
