Windows 8 App Development Workshop

Please register for this event at this link.

In this workshop you will learn how to develop Windows 8 apps based on well-known web service API's such as Twitter, Meetup, ESPN, Instagram, Bing, and EchoNest.

Your app could entertain or even change the world. This workshop is great for students, hobbyists and professional developers who want to learn the basics of app development and publish their first app to the store.

This workshop is hands-on, so to get the most out of the event we strongly encourage you to bring your laptop configured with the following:

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

2.  Windows 8 Professional or Enterprise (64-bit) (a 90-day evaluation version available here)

3.  Visual Studio 2012 Professional (free for DreamSpark or MSDN subscribers) or Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows 8 (free for anyone)

To publish to the Windows Store you will also need a Windows Store Developer Account:

1.  If you are a student, use the DreamSpark benefits for a free account

2.  If you are an MSDN Subscriber, use the one-time free account benefit associated with MSDN

3.  Otherwise, the account is $49, but via the free App Builder Rewards program, you can accrue points to cover the fee as well have access to technical and marketing resources as you launch your application in the marketplace.

    Mr. O'Neil swung for the fences in his presentation of how to use APIs in Win8 apps. A useful resource shown was http://json2csharp.com

    Note that the focus of the event has changed from Windows Phone development to Windows 8 development. We will still be focused on Windows 8 and Visual Studio 2012, even though Windows 8.1 will have been recently released.

      Awe bummer! I've been mocking up a phone app with PowerPoint. That's ok, I'll make it a Windows app first and port it. :-)

      stay tuned... we're working on a more significant Windows Phone event for mid-November, so your efforts will not be for naught :)

    I will give everyone who attends a Nokia Premium Developer Program token (contains $1500 worth of licenses), this will let you publish the app to the store. When you publish the app, I'll then mail you a phone :)
