Tech Valley User GroupI’ll be the guest of the Tech Valley User Group at their October meeting, tomorrow October 9th, at Tyler Technologies, and presenting on Windows 8 – specifically walking through building your first application on the new platform.  If you have Windows 8 and Visual Studio 2012 installed, feel free to bring your laptop and follow along, but it’s definitely not a requirement.

We won’t be building the next killer app, but hopefully you'll gain enough insight and get pointers to resource like Generation App, that will enable you to get your app into the Windows Store and start reaching hundreds of millions of users when Windows 8 officially launches on Oct. 26th.

I’ll be in town early as well, so if you’re working on a app know or just want to chat about potential ideas, how to get going, etc., feel free to stop by the Daily Grind in Troy – I’ll be hanging out there from about 3:45 to 5:15 or so.
