Wonderful Interknowlogy (http://interknowlogy.com/) Sr. Engineers presenters Danny Warren (our August speaker) and Kevin Stumpf (our October speaker...you know, Jason Bourne! ;-) ) are writing curriculum for us! It's a bring your own laptop and be ready to learn! You needn't obligate to all classes.
There will be about 15 Sessions twice a month where we begin loading a Windows 8 OS VM and all the tools you need, assuming you know nothing about Windows 8. Then, they'll progress through the mandatory topics to master the new OS paradigm to get you to the point where you then just use your web or windows skills to make Windows 8 apps!
I think this is a chance of a lifetime, and these 2 men are great technological community examples of excellence!
These 2 giving men are doing this FOR FREE, and will be available throughout the class duration & 2 weeks after in a forum to answer all of your questions! This is a hand-holding chance of a lifetime to get your skills up to date!
(Thank you Doug Seven for the updated poster!)
We're looking for a venue, and will start as soon as we have one. Everyone check who you know who might be willing to give us 2 nights a month for about 7 weeks. Thank you!
