Got a great app idea? Be the first to get your Windows 8 Metro style app into the Windows Store!

Do you have a great app idea and want to see it live in the Windows Store ASAP?

If you’ve attended our Windows 8 Event at Club Nokia (Missed it?  No worries, recorded video to be posted here) or one of our Windows 8 Developer Camps and you want to dive deeper into your app development, register for a Windows 8 Accelerator Lab (links below).

At this point, you might be thinking, “Great!  So many excellent resources and events to build my rock star app, but how I you get my app into the Windows Store early?”

Like I said at the LA Live event, impress me.  Show me your cool app idea!  If you can’t show me in person, please email me through my blog and I will get you started on the next step to set you up with a trained Premier Field Engineer so you can be on your way to getting that token.  More details posted in Jaime Rodriguez's post here.

Windows reimagined. Extraordinary apps.

Please join us for a special Windows event that you simply don't want to miss – the Windows Accelerator Lab. This is your chance to dig deeper into the latest version of Windows (code name: Windows 8) and gain all the knowledge you need to immediately start building beautiful, fluid and immersive Metro-style Windows applications.

In this FREE, three-day developer event, we'll have experts available to help you build, test and deploy your Windows app. You'll get step-by-step advice from Microsoft and community experts and one-on-one technical assistance. Just bring that app you've been tinkering away on, or a new idea that you're eager to build. After three days of hands-on learning, you'll be ahead of the Windows curve and well on your way to releasing that killer app to the world.
