Windows reimagined. Extraordinary apps.

Join us for the Win 8 hackathon and be among the first to see the new look (pretty!) and feel (touch screens!) of Windows before the public launch in Q3.

Not only do you guys get to play with new technology, did I mention that there are only 300 apps in the Win 8 store right now? And that the MSFT store is set to be the biggest one of its kind ever?! That sounds like opportunity knocking to me. If y'all make something great and put it in the app store, you may end up with a little cash flow.

Equally important, you can make new friends, eat like a little piggy, have fun and win prizes*.


Before Hackathon: Attendees will receive an email regarding Win 8 prior to the event, so that setup can be completed before arrival.

Friday, June 22, 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM: Dinner; Intro to Win 8; Meet the Experts, Time to brainstorm and form teams; Fun!

Saturday, June 23, 9:00 AM - 9:00 PM (new time): Invent; Play; Ask the experts; Eat!

Sunday, June 24, 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM: Judging begins at 3:00 PM. Prizes awarded at 5:00 PM. Outta there by 6:00pm
