HANDS ON & PAIRING: MSDN Roadshow-App Building Edition

(Note the originally scheduled June meeting has been moved to July.)

BRING YOUR LAPTOPS. See below for configurations - even Macs!

We'll do pair programming like we did in May. Woo hoo!

Or fabulous Microsoft D.E., Chris Bowen, (who loves any excuse to get to Bove's, but loves us even more than that!), is re-framing his roadshow workshop to fit into our user group meeting. He'll drive up from New Hampshire to visit. Too bad spaghetti is too messy to substitute for pizza! :)

Speaking of pizza...


Below is the marketing spiel for the workshop. Our meeting will be a mini-version. And thanks again to MyWebGrocer for hosting!

Get ready to learn and code, because the Northeast MSDN Roadshow team is loading up content, code, and demos that might even work, to return to the roads for a special limited engagement in June!

These are free workshops, great for students, hobbyists, and professional developers who want to learn the basics of Windows 8 app development and publish their first app to the Windows Store.  (Fans of earlier Roadshows will notice that we have sneakily adapted these as evening, hands-on events.)

There’s a world of amazing things out there, just an API call away.  These workshops will show you how to tap into some of the tens of thousands of them, mercilessly mashing APIs to create your own Windows Store app.  Your app could inform, entertain, or even change the world!

Your friendly northeast Microsoft evangelists will be visiting to help you learn how to develop Windows 8 apps using well-known web service APIs such as Twitter, Meetup, Yelp, ESPN, EchoNest, World Health Organization, and others.  We’ll take a bit of time to teach the essentials of APIs, data, and UIs, then unleash your creativity with hands-on time using API starter kits we’ve developed to get you mashing quickly.

As these workshops are hands-on, to get the most out of the event, bring a laptop configured with the following:

1. Mac users only: Boot Camp, Parallels Desktop, VirtualBox, or VMWare Fusion

2. Windows 8 (90-day evaluation version available here)

3. Visual Studio 2012 Express for Windows 8 (free), or higher version of Visual Studio 2012

Apps you develop could qualify you for $100 via the “Keep the Cash” program (running through June 30th).  Also, for continued learning and access to other developer programs, we highly recommend signing up for the free App Builder program.

See you on the road!
