To celebrate, Microsoft New Zealand is bringing hands-on Windows 8 App Development training workshops to five cities across the country.
The Microsoft Team will be travelling the country to run developer workshops from mid-November. It doesn't matter if you are an experienced programmer, or completely new to building apps. We are crafting a series of hands-on tutorials specifically for these events, designed to be short and interactive sessions - introducing you to a range of Windows 8 app development features. Step-by-step, follow-along labs will include data access, integrating charms, and even preparing your app for the Windows Store. Although most demonstrations and hands-on labs will be around building Windows Store apps for Windows 8, we will show you how transferrable these skills are - and discuss building mobile apps for Windows Phone, as well! For the full hands-on experience, please bring your own laptop with Windows 8 and Visual Studio 2012 installed.
Hamilton, Christchurch, Dunedin, Wellington: A 3-hour morning workshop to let you hit the ground running!Give us 3 hours of your time, and we will give you the basics to get ramped up and building your own Windows 8 apps. This quick-fire session will show you everything you need to know to get started, and will introduce a range of Windows 8 app features.
Auckland: Choose one of two full-day workshops on the weekend, December 1st or December 2nd!We have a little more time to spare in Auckland, so we will go through the entire app building process from start to finish. Although we are asking for more time (10am to 5pm) we will provide full catering and all-day parking.
Events are free, but space is limited. Register your seat today:
