    Is it necessary to develop app in C#. Can not we develop in HTML5?

  9. Muhamad Umer says:

    The training will be on C# but you can develop of Html5 as well.

  10. Saima Irum says:

    What if we wouldn't be able to complete the app after training?

    And do we have to be app developer for this boot camp as i have basic knowledge of OOP but i haven't developed any app yet?

  11. Muhamad Umer says:

    @Saima Irum.

    1) Those who fail to develop & publish an app after the training will not get certificates of this training.

    2) You can join, if you have knowledge of OOP and programming in c#.

  13. Atif says:

    can we propose an idea as a group?

  14. Muhamad Umer says:

    @Muzammil

    If you are a student, then store registration is already free for you using DreamSpark 🙂

  15. Muhamad Umer says:

    @Atif

    No – each participant has to submit a separate idea and he/she has to submit app separately

  16. Shaharyar says:
