The most significant developer opportunity. Ever.

Apps are the heart of Windows 8, but what does that mean for developers? Find out by joining us for an exciting night of development at the Microsoft Store. See how Windows 8 and updated versions of Visual Studio and Expression Blend make it easy to build your next app. Experience the capabilities of WinRT, charms, live tiles, and more! Web developers can leverage their HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript skills, and .NET developers can leverage their XAML, C#, and Visual Basic skills to build great Metro apps. After an introduction to Windows 8 and new developer tools, we will build an exciting app and implement many of the elements important to a content-centric Windows 8 Metro style app.
