Excited about Windows Phone & Windows 8? How about the new Modern UI design language? Well, we are .. and there is plenty of company!
The Windows Developer User Group has been established to nurture knowledge base and collaboration among Windows Phone & Windows 8 application developers & enthusiasts. While we are primarily based in Columbus OH, developers from all around Ohio, neighboring states and just about anybody who has interest in the Microsoft ecosystem, is most welcome.
With all that’s happening in the Microsoft technology stack, the future looks awesome. Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 share essentials; Windows 8 is changing computing form factors as we know it & XBox is bringing the ecosystem to the living room. Guess what’s common in all of these – the new Modern UI design language & similar programming paradigms.
With the vibrant developer community around Columbus OH, we needed a dedicated forum to talk about upcoming technologies, architectures, design & development paradigms around building applications/games on Windows Phone & Windows 8 platforms. Our focus will be Modern UI Design, XAML/C#, HTML/CSS, WinRT & XNA development, so that we appeal to variety of developer interests. We are registered with INETA & collaborate with other similar User Groups to bring you some of the best speakers/experts in this technology space.
Please come join!
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
