October 26th is getting closer and closer … is your Windows 8 app ready? You’re invited to the last app-a-thon before Windows 8 hits the market. Join us at our offices in Zaventem on September 28!
Past hackathons we organized were an incredibly fun and interactive experience. We have people joining and putting their hands on coding Windows 8 for the first time, while others join to fine-tune what is already underway. It’s a very informal event, bring your machine, have Windows 8 setup and join the community! Check out some of the pictures of last app-a-thon on our Facebook page.
This time we’ve listened to the feedback, and we’re doing more: we’ve got a designer ready to help you with colors, visuals, and logo material for your app. What about UX and Windows Store guidelines? Covered too, a UX consultant will also be on site part of the day. And don’t forget the MEET community and the Microsoft evangelists ready to help you.
Hands on. Code. Build. Shine. Totally Metro. Totally Windows 8.
When? 28 September 2012 Where? Microsoft Belgium Leonardo Da Vincilaan 3 1935 Zaventem
There will be 2 coding sessions, 1 for Day Birds from 10am – 4pm and one for Night Owls from 6pm – 12am. You can join us for one or both sessions. Build an app, have fun and go home with a fantastic prize!
