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 Microsoft 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 under way, or finish that app you've already started—with Windows 8 experts available to guide you through every step. Bring your laptop or tablet to join in the fun, and show off your skills while getting started on developing your company's first Metro application.
