I will be hosting a hackathon, open to the public, on Saturday, April 12, from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Microsoft office. Come and enjoy technical conversations and some friendly coding competition. The topic of this hackathon is to learn about developing and publishing apps for Windows 8.
Please sign-up here
To participate, you will need:
- Laptop/Computer running Windows 8
- Visual Studio 2013 Professional
- Credit Card
The credit card is required ONLY if you plan to publish your app (and you are, aren't you?). Publishing to the app store will cost $19.00 (unless you are a DreamSpark, BizSpark, or MSDN subscriber). You will also need the credit card to validate your account with the store. This is required of everyone, even Microsoft Employees.
