Windows 8: Opportunity Knocks

With the general availability of Windows 8 on Oct. 26th comes the opportunity for entrepreneurs and developers to reach ultimately hundreds of millions of users via applications submitted to the Windows Store.

Did you know that your only cost to develop, test, monetize, and distribute your application is a $49 store registration fee? Or that you keep 70% - and in some cases 80% - of the revenue your application generates?

Did you know Microsoft offers free training and consultations with Windows 8 architects and designers to help make you successful? 

Did you know you can use your HTML, JavaScript, and CSS skills to write native applications for Windows 8. Or that other tools exist allowing you to build HTML5 games and deploy them to Windows 8 as well as Facebook, iOS, and Android?

Well, you will! Join us for an evening that focuses on how you can tap into the tremendous opportunities and possibilities ushered in with Windows 8!
