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.
