Win8 App Dev Course - JavaScript or C#

Windows 8 App Dev Course is a free, no-fluff, hands-on events for developers, by developers. You learn from Microsoft expert Stepan Bechynsky in a low-key, interactive way how to build a realistic Windows Store app either using C# and XAML (Jan 14) or JavaScript and HTML (Jan 15).

Windows is the largest platform in the world with over a billion Window PCs in current use and nearly 690 million Windows 7 devices. Windows 8 is the next version of Windows with 40 million licenses sold in first month. Windows 8 provides a new platform for apps with unprecedented reach across devices from tablets, PCs to all-in-ones, all with the same app (more information on The Opportunity here).

If you have .NET and C# background, then participate in C# & XAML course. If you’ve developed web apps, you’re ready to build Windows Store apps in JavaScript & HTML. During the course you’ll learn to work with Windows 8 controls, view states, contracts, tiles and notifications, the Windows Store APIs, and other Windows 8 features.

REGISTRATION  

[UPDATE]
Both courses turned out to be very popular and are now sold out!

The training is free but seats are limited! Preference is given to those attendees, who aim to develop a concrete app after the course.

Please register by January 8 and let us know on which date you want to attend, include the attendee contacts and specify which app you’re planning to build.

PS! You’ll need to bring your own laptop and have it preloaded with Windows 8 and all the free tools and SDKs on (Downloads Page).
