These are two upcoming events that I'll be attending as a panelist (details below). IMHO, if you're on the fence (or even just getting started) with Windows then you should make an effort to attend one of these events. If you're one of the few (many?) who is a little pessimistic about Windows 8, feel free to wait until after BUILD and the release of the Surface tablets. The event in Portland will be held two weeks after BUILD, which is plenty of time to see if this whole thing is gaining any traction, yet still early enough to jump on the band-wagon without missing it. There's food, swag, and incentives for early publishers of apps. Be sure to register, and feel free to let me know if you'll be there.
Are you excited to try your hand at building a Windows 8 App?
Join us on October 27th in Redmond or November 10th in Portland for Code with the Experts and make your dream a reality! Visit with Windows 8 experts and enjoy great food, awesome conversation, and wonderful prizes!
We want to invite you, your friends, co-workers, and any other developers to this special event. It is the perfect time to get started on your Windows 8 App. Don't worry if you don't yet have an idea for an App - we can brainstorm with you or match you with an idea for a Windows 8 App. Additionally, if you would like to work with someone on a project we will be ready to pair you with other developers. Bring your storyboard, your ideas and your thinking cap!
We'll be providing the food, door and raffle prizes, and most exciting is a special surprise for all developers who are working towards publishing a Windows 8 App. All this AND we'll have the experts to help guide you through some of your challenges and roadblocks.
Bring your laptop loaded with Windows 8 and Visual Studio Express ready to code or use one of our preloaded "Windows 8 To Go" USB sticks. (Limited number available)
All attendees will receive a raffle ticket to win some cool prizes.
For every guest you bring to this Code with the Expert event, you will receive an extra entry to the raffle!
Looking forward to seeing you!
