September 14-15: Windows 8 Camp + Hackathon Los Angeles Agenda

Get excited for the Windows 8 Camp + Hackathon in Los Angeles next week!  We’ve been seeing some really great apps, and we’re looking forward to seeing more and handing out more prizes (Could anyone use a Samsung 7 Series slate + $500?).

Already have an app idea or an app you’re working on?  Be sure to sign up for Generation App and register your app profile here (Please feel free to contact me with any questions that weren’t answered in my blog).
