Windows 8 Changes Everything

Combining the broad reach of Windows, best-in-class developer tools, a reimagined user experience, support for new chipsets, and a built-in Store with industry-leading business terms — Windows 8 is the largest developer opportunity, ever.

Join us for this free, full-day event designed to share all the knowledge you need to start building Metro-style applications for Windows 8 – today. We'll begin by showing you how to use Visual Studio to code fast, fluid, immersive and beautiful Metro-style applications in HTML5/JavaScript, XAML/C# and C/C++. Your existing investments in these languages carry forward, making Windows a no-compromise platform for developers.

Whatever language you choose, your app gets deep integration with the Windows shell, including notifications, live tiles, deep links, and contracts with other apps. And now you can build once and support all Windows customers, no matter what type of PC they have – from tablets to laptops to convertibles to desktops.

We'll cap the day off with an open, hands-on lab session. It's the perfect opportunity to get your dream application underway, or finish that app you've already started – with Windows 8 experts available to guide you through every step. Bring your laptop to join in the fun and show off your killer app.

Get started now! Register today.

Please bring a notebook computer and your personal identification. Also, check out the Windows Dev Center, where you can download the Windows 8 Consumer Preview.

This free event is brought to you by Microsoft. However, you are responsible for booking and funding your own travel and accommodations. Please note that there is limited space available for this event, so be sure to register early.
