With just over a week to go before the general availability of Windows 8, it’s one of your last chances to ‘get in the know’ prior to fielding those questions from <insert technologically-challenged relative here>!
I’ll be the guest of the Tech-in-Motion Boston Meetup this coming Monday, October 22nd, at the Microsoft New England Research and Development Center (NERD) in Cambridge. The focus will be on the opportunities Windows 8 presents for developers and entrepreneurs given the unparalleled size of the Windows ecosystem.
I’ll chat a bit about Windows 8 application design and user experience, strategies and support for developing applications, and the monetization options. We’ll have some associates from the Microsoft Store on hand with some great Windows 8 devices (sorry, no Surfaces yet), a representative of SpeadSong will chat about their experiences building for Windows 8, and we’ll even have some valuable prizes to give away!
