Windows 8 Training Camp–Register Your Seat


Microsoft is delighted to bring Windows Camps to New Zealand. Catered for developers, Windows Camps will provide first hand training to start developing on the Windows 8 platform. Join us in Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland from the 20 to 23 March 2012.

What’s a Windows Camp?
Windows Camps are free, fun, no-fluff events for developers, by developers. You learn from experts in a low-key, interactive way and then you’ll get to apply what you’ve learned.

What am I going to learn?
At this Windows Camp, you’ll learn about:

  • The Windows 8 Platform
  • Metro Style apps
  • Tools
  • UI and Controls
  • Integrating with the OS
  • Managing states
  • Notification and PLM
  • Hardware: Media, Camera, Sensors
  • Windows Store APIs

(Agenda subject to change)

What happens at these camps?
The first part of the camp will be lecture style presentations by expert trainers to give you an overview of the Windows 8 platform. The second part is a Hands-on-Labs workshop where you will have access to a Windows 8 Computer to complete hands on training. Attend one, or both. For the lab part of the event, space is very limited and we will be prioritising slots to those developers who commit to building a Metro Style App for Windows 8 to put into practice what they learn in the lab. Don’t worry we won’t be getting you to sign a contract or anything like that but we will follow up with you after the lab to see how things are progressing and what you have chosen to build.

What does it cost and how do I register?
Windows Camps are free. We appreciate your time, so we take care of the rest. Registration is free, but it’s also limited to keep things interactive and fun. We recommend you register right away to make sure you get a seat. To keep things simple, just you, some ID and maybe something to take notes on.

Any Questions?
If you have any questions, please email If you can no longer attend this event, please cancel your registration so we can reassign the place to another person.
