WOWZAPP 2012 – Worldwide Hackathon for Windows

Good morning

Today I have a really cool thing to announce!

Microsoft is organizing a worldwide Hackathon for Windows called WOWZAPP 2012. At three days several thousand developers all over the world will code to make this event a big success. Microsoft Switzerland takes part of it and organizes two events on November 9, 2012.

You want to be part of the Hackathon too? Then join us at one of the following events:

• Hackathon in Bern
         Location:  Bern (Location not yet defined)
Date: November 9, 2012
Time: 08:45-15:00
• Hackathon in Wallisellen (Zürich)
Location: Richtistrasse 3, 8304 Wallisellen
Date: November 9, 2012
Time: 16:00-22:00

These events are open to all developers interested in programming for Windows 8, independent if you’re a pro or a beginner. You have the chance to meet with peers to discuss your ideas and questions. I think that will be a great opportunity for everybody! And it's for free!

Students can also use the event to program their first app for the You Make IT Smart competition, you half way to your own Samsung ATIV tablet.

You think only coding is boring? We agree! That’s why we have some specials around it:

  • Expert Lounge to have good chats with our experts (Wallisellen only)
  • Pizza, Red Bull and more to give you the energy you need
  • Xbox Lounge to have a lot of fun (Wallisellen only)
  • Draw of a Samsung ATIV tablet to make the win for you even bigger 🙂

Interested? So go directly to our registration sites and register for one or both events:


Kind regards,
