About 3 weeks ago we closed the Windows 8 Super Hackathon at 4 locations in Belgium (Brussels, Genk, Kortrijk and Mons). We welcomed over 200 developers across all locations to build apps on the Windows platform.
The participants could also enter their app in a contest to win these amazing prizes:
1st place: free & full entrance to TechEd Madrid 25-28 June
2nd place: Marvellous Asus Vivo Tab
3rd place: Hot Windows Phone 8: Nokia Lumia 820
Based on a number of criteria – among them: app potential in the Windows Store, usage of Windows 8 features, connected services, design guidelines – 3 winners were selected by a jury of Microsoft employees and MEET members.
Our congratulations go to …
