Code Camp 7 – Announcing Windows 8 Hackathon!

by Stephen Bohlen on August 28, 2012

Just in case you haven’t had enough by the end of the Code Camp event, the fun will continue on into the evening after the Code Camp is complete!

We’re happy to announce that immediately following the Code Camp on Saturday September 15, 2012 Microsoft will be hosting a Window 8 Hackathon at the same location!  The Hackathon will run from 6:30pm to 10:00pm that same day.  Food and drink will be provided!  Following is the text of the event announcement from Microsoft…

Windows 8 changes everything.

Combining the broad reach of Windows, best-in-class developer tools, a re-imagined user experience, support for new chipsets, and a built-in store with industry-leading business terms, Windows 8 is the largest developer opportunity – ever.

Our Hackathon is an open Windows 8 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 Windows 8 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.

This evening event will be filled with coding, sharing, and the opportunity to show off your app to win prizes like a Windows 8 Tablet!  Bring your PCs installed with Windows 8, your apps and your cool ideas and get ready to create!

No separate registration is required so grab your computer and prepare to start hacking!

Hope to see you there!
