Back on March 13th, I announced a series of Windows 8 Developer Camps coming to cities up and down the US east coast starting this week and running through April & May 2012. There was one location that eerily seemed to be missing from the list of tour dates: New York City! (or as my teammate Rachel Appel likes to say, “The Capital of the World!”) So what gives?!
New York City is a special place… being the capital of the world and all. Microsoft wanted to be able to do something special there for the first big Windows 8 Developer event there. As such, the details were not all in place when I announced the Windows 8 Developer Camps earlier this month. Now they are, and I’m happy to announce that April 19, 2012 will be the Windows 8 Developer Event in New York City!!! The event will be at Center 548 on the West Side near Chelsea Piers. Read on for registration & details…
