Windows 8 Hands-on Labs Online Training Events

We are offering Windows 8 Hands-on Labs Online (HOLOs) training sessions to help developers with various aspects of learning how to use existing skills to build Windows 8 applications. Sign up today!

Windows 8 Dev Camps

Windows 8 Dev Camps are free, fun, no-fluff events for developers, by developers. You will learn from experts in a casual, interactive way and then get hands-on time to apply what you’ve learned. Camps are all day events with lunch included. Just bring your laptop loaded with Windows 8, Visual Studio Express for Windows, and other tools available on the Downloads page. Registration is open, so sign up today!

Generation App

If you’re unable to attend one of our in person events (or even if you can!), participate in the Generation App program. From start to finish, Generation App provides what you need to make coding Windows 8 apps or games a snap. Find the tools, help, and support you need to make sure your app is available now that Windows 8 is here. Receive personal on-the-phone access to a Windows 8 architect, an exclusive one-on-one Windows UI consultation, and daily tips to help you structure your app development.* Get started today at Generation App.

 

* Offer good only to legal residents of the 50 United States and District of Columbia, age 18 or older, who are hobbyists, professionals, or developers in the field of software tech and sign up for building a Windows 8 application on www.generationapp.com. Offer limited to 250 design consultations per month and 500 technical review consultations per month, on a first-come, first-served basis. Limit of one session of each offer type per person. This offer is non-transferable and cannot be combined with any other offer. This offer ends when supplies are exhausted, and is not redeemable for cash.

Contacts in the United States
