I have blogged before about the process to get a Windows 8 developer token early so you can reserve your name and submit your app.
Now, a few colleagues in US DPE Central region are raising the bounty with a contest that gives free slates to the best apps that complete a lab by June 30th. Get all the details at Jennifer Marsman's blog.
By Microsoft’s definition, the states that comprise the Central Region of the United States are Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, and Kentucky)
Good luck & Happy Windows 8 Coding!
PS – Don’t forget, if you are not eligible to participate on the contest, you can still get the token by going to a lab around the world.
PPS – If you go to her blog post, leave a comment asking if JaimeR will be a judge at the contest. Let’s start the rumor and see if it sticks. I want to see the apps.
