WOWZAPP – Be Part of the App Revolution

To all developers:

Join thousands of developers worldwide for WOWZAPP – the worldwide hackathon for Windows, taking place all around the globe from November 9-11, as we build apps for the next generation of Windows. Meet our experts and trainers, find resources, connect with colleague developers, code, learn, and have fun!

In addition, being part of this global event is the best opportunity for you to get started for our Windows 8 competitions:


On your keyboards, get set, go: App Sprint is our competition for professional developers. Be one of the first 100 to publish a Windows 8 app by December 31, and win one of the latest Samsung devices.


Touch IT: You Make IT Smart is our competition for students. Be one of the first 111 to publish two Windows 8 apps by February 28, 2013, and win a Samsung ATIV Tab.


Rise to the occasion, join us for Switzerland’s WOWZAPP satellite events, code your app, and ensure you are among the first publishers for the Swiss Windows Store – improve your chance of winning! We are hosting two WOWZAPP satellite events:
