October 22 and 23, 2012 – Windows 8 Camp in Austin

Windows 8 Dev Camp is coming to Austin!

Join us for these free events with informative sessions and hands-on opportunities designed to help you start building applications for Windows8 or learn how to launch them to the Cloud.

Choose that track below that best fits your needs. Keep in mind, separate registration is required for the Hackathon on Day 2. Attend just one day or join us for two full days of learning. It’s your choice.

Day 1 - Windows 8 DevCamp (10/22)

Our DevCamp covers Windows 8 RTM from top to bottom, featuring sessions that run from introductory to intermediate as the day unfolds. We’ll show you how to use Visual Studio to code fast, fluid, immersive, and beautiful Windows 8 applications in HTML5/JavaScript and XAML/C#. Your existing investments in these languages carry forward, making Windows a no-compromise platform for developers. These sessions will be followed by an InstallFest to prepare your system for hands-on app development.

Day 1 - Cloud DevCamp (10/22)

Spend a day with your head in the cloud as you learn how to build web applications that run in Windows Azure. We will show you how to sign up for FREE time in the cloud, and how to build a typical web application using the same ASP.NET tools and techniques you already use today. We will explore web roles, cloud storage, Windows Azure SQL Database, and common scenarios. At the end of this event, you will have the strong foundation of knowledge about the Windows Azure Cloud Platform you’ll need to launch your applications into the cloud!

Day 2 - Hackathon (10/23)

Our Hackathon is an open Windows 8 and Windows Azure code fest, where you’ll put what you know into practice and be eligible to win some great prizes! Code to your heart’s content, with Microsoft experts available to guide you through every step of the process. It’s the perfect opportunity to get your dream application underway, or to finish that app you’ve already started.

Since this will be a hands-on event you will need to bring with you a laptop pre-configured with the required tools and SDKs (for recommended system specs, click on the city nearest you). We will have help onsite to get the right bits installed as well if you run into trouble.

Lunch and prizes will also be provided. Bring your own laptop, your apps and your cool ideas and get ready to create!

Register today and join us for this fantastic (and free) developer opportunity.
