Windows 8 Developer Camp

Hey, are you a Metro developer? What’s that? Windows 8 is still in beta? Great point, but already developers like you are starting to self-identify themselves as Metro Developers – they are becoming mobile-aware developers on the Microsoft platform: desktop, phone, tablet.

Remember Visual Basic developers in the 90’s? Remember .Net developers in the 00’s? The Metro Developer is tomorrow’s category for developers embracing current and future industry momentum. And, Metro starts with Windows 8. It’s both technology and principles.

Let’s be honest, Windows 8 is a freight train. It’s coming no matter what. Design is complete. Development is nearly complete. Marketing is rolling up their sleeves. And, soon, Windows 8 will be ubiquitous with the Microsoft mobile platform, desktop platform, and everything else. This is the freight train you want to be on board. It’s not the one you want to watch roll by.

Enter the Windows 8 Developer Camp in Denver (June 1). This is your opportunity to get a taste of Windows 8. To get a feel for Metro. And to begin to understand the paradigm changes inherent in the new, touch-first, mobile-ready, Metro development model. Come learn Metro basics, understand lifecycle and your technology choices, and see some practical application code.

This event is a traveling event. It’s stop in Denver is June 1. It’s hosted by the Microsoft office in the Tech Center. The price is free. But, space is limited. Don’t miss out.
