Windows 8 Hackathons start this week!

If you or your company has been looking at cost-effective (as in FREE) training on building Metro-Style apps for Windows 8, you may want to register for the Windows 8 Hackathons that start this week across the country.  Spaces are limited, so you should register by going to one of the links below very soon.

Training is expensive and training budgets are always a bit of a challenge.  Yet, it’s very important to keep up-to-date on the newest technologies in order to best stay ahead of the curve.  Luckily, we have a FREE opportunity for you in one of 4 cities (Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal) to start actually building these new types of apps by attending a Microsoft-hosted Windows 8 Metro-Style app hackathon.

Space is becoming limited, so I would encourage you to register ASAP

The details are below:

At this event you will see Microsoft evangelists as well as prominent Windows 8 app developers that are eager to help you get started building your app.  There will be future opportunities as well to have your app reviewed by our engineers to see if your app is ready for early access to the Windows Store (i.e.:  ahead of virtually everyone else in the world), which is also an amazing opportunity.

We’ll see you there!
