Windows 8 Code Weekend - 8-9th September – London

A dev4good event in collaboration with TheGivingLab.org and Givey.co.uk this year to bring together talented thinkers, designers and coders from around the UK to work on some real-world issues faced by UK charities.

The technology theme for the event is Windows 8, but no prior knowledge of Windows 8 app development is required. The goals for the weekend are simple. We want to learn how to create Windows 8 apps that could change the way people live their lives.

So if you are a software developer (on any platform), designer, academic, computing student, or are just interested in help out then we need you. It’s going to be a real challenge and sleep will be optional. Are you up for it? If you are, the event registration page is here.

Remember, this is a not-for-profit event being run by volunteers, so you won’t be paid for the work you do. You will, however, get to meet and work with some of the smartest developers and designers in the UK all while doing some real good for society.
