Please join us at a FREE Windows 8 UX Design Camp
Windows 8 is a new digital canvas where you can showcase your creativity and flair with apps that reach hundreds of millions of people. The platform provides unique features like Live Tiles, Contracts and Cloud services, so you can engage your audience more deeply in new and creative ways. There's never been a more exciting time to be a designer and we're pleased to invite you to a Windows 8 UX Design Camp to learn how to design great apps.
What is a Windows 8 UX Design Camp?
Windows 8 UX Design Camps are free, fun, no-fluff workshops for designers, by designers. In this camp you'll learn from experts on Windows Store app UX design and apply what you've learned by designing your first Windows Store app. During the course of the workshop, we'll have experts on Windows Store app design on hand to review your design and answer your questions.

What can I expect?
Windows 8 UX Design camps are workshops where your time will be split between discussing key principles of Windows Store app design and applying what you've learned in design exercises. All design exercises are done sketching with paper and pencil to provide you a way to quickly apply what you've learned and get feedback from camp mentors.

What's the agenda?
In this design camp, we'll cover:

  • Windows Store App Design Principles
  • Designing a Great Windows Store App
  • Navigation
  • Layout
  • Commanding
  • Snap and Scale Beautifully
