WOWZapp is a worldwide windows hackathon, with locations from Algiers to Vietnam, from Fredericton, NB to Vancouver, BC! Thousands of developers around the world will be coding Windows 8 and Windows Phone apps.
The weekend promises to be a great opportunity to do some learning, some coding, and be part of something big.
We’re upping the ante by giving away two Windows 8 devices here in Canada. One will be given away to a participant at the main WOWZAPP hub in Vancouver. The other will be given to a participant in one of the Microsoft Student Partner (MSP) organized events. Find the WOWZAPP event nearest you and join in the fun! Of course every app created at a WOWZAPP Canada event could earn you rewards through Developer Movement.
This is the hub of Canada’s WOWZAPP weekend. Registration is open to students and non-students, we’ll have food, internet connectivity, prizes, learning sessions, coding time, and some fun. If you are in the Vancouver area, this is one event you do not want to miss.
MSP WOWZAPP EVENTS
We can’t be everywhere, so our amazing Microsoft Student Partners (MSP) have organized WOWZapp events across the country. We’re giving them food and prizes, so you won’t miss out just because you aren’t in Vancouver. One quick note, the students often rely on campus internet to provide internet access, so if you are interested in attending one of the student organized events below, don’t assume you will have internet if you are not a student at that school. You can contact the organizer using the email on the WOWZapp registration site if you need to know for sure.
