Introduction to Windows 8 development

*The presentation will start at 7, we'll have pizza at 6:30. If for some reason the doors are locked, text me at[masked]*

Windows 8 is going to be hot for developers. In fact Microsoft's latest developer conference, BUILD, just sold out in under an hour. Developing for Windows 8 has much more in common with web and mobile development though, and is easy to pick up. And with a potential marketplace of over half a billion users, there will be a first mover advantage like there has never been before.

In this session I'll give an overview of developing for Windows 8, how to design your apps, and how to make money from them in the store.

As a Microsoft Developer Evangelist based here in ATL, I have several perks to offer local developers that you wouldn't get just signing up to be a publisher on your own.

After the session we'll head over to a nearby watering hole to chat casually about apps and Windows 8.

    Would you folks prefer to have pizza and mingle for the first part of the meeting, then have the session? Or start right at 6:30, be done by 8 and then go to a nearby place to eat and drink and chat about Windows 8 opportunities? I can provide pizza for the meeting or appetizers for afterwards. Thoughts?

    I have been developing Windows CE based devices since early 2000. It's very easy to learn it. Learning curve is much faster than Android and IPhone development. Development environment is simpler.....

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
