We recently ran Windows 8 training, hackathons and hands on coding labs in Johannesburg and Cape Town (we will be heading to Durban and elsewhere soon). Everyone who attended loved seeing the new technology heading our way and hearing about the amazing opportunities for developers when Windows 8 hits the stores.
If you missed these events and want to get up to speed sooner rather than later and you should! The store wants your apps! Then just download the Windows 8 Camp in a Box, Consumer Preview Edition.
