Two days ago we saw the unveiling of the Surface Tablet, a really awesome product I’d like to get my hands on as soon as possible. Of course it will be running Windows 8 with Metro Style Apps. Since this is a whole new perspective on building rich apps (none the less giving developers  the freedom to choose between HTML and JavaScript or XAML and C#,VB or C++) we want to get you ready for it by offering preparation events.

From now until October 2012, Microsoft will be organizing weekly events in Wallisellen, focusing on the topic of developing Windows 8 Metro style applications. Depending on your schedule and needs you have more options for these events. You can check them out on the Get Ready for Windows 8 – Event Series .

For all you that are fans of our You Make IT Smart campaign, these events are the best preparation for the September beginning new campaign. This is a great way to get a head start by playing around with the new technology already during the summer, guided by Microsoft specialists! And guess what, all is for free!

And remember, the best way to keep on track on the latest news from Microsoft is by subscribing to our MSDN Flash newsletter here.

Enjoy the sessions!
