2 weeks from now (on 30 May 2012) we’ll be hosting the next Windows 8 Camp at the Business Faculty in Brussels.
You’ll need to bring your own laptop loaded with the software. This event will kick-start your app development!
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.
