Do you want to really understand the new features of Windows 8 and how you can leverage them in your very own application? Join Kevin Stumpf and Danny Warren from Interknowlogy, to learn how to develop Windows Store applications for Windows 8. The course is designed for developers of all skills and backgrounds, and is a comprehensive look at all of the major features and capabilities of Windows 8 using Visual Studio 2012, XAML and C#.

All sessions will be held at Saddleback College in room BGS-235 (to view larger, use your OS's Zoom): who are attending all need to RSVP ON VNEXT'S SITE, no matter where you come from (other user groups, etc). This will be the central location for all communication on what is happening for each & every class. YOU WILL NEED TO GET A PARKING PERMIT from Kim, so when you RSVP on vNext_OC's ( site, I'll reach out to everyone so they have the parking passes.

These sessions will be held at Saddleback College on two Tuesdays each month (if possible; however expect some Tuesdays-in-a-row, & some skipped because of the holidays & our other exciting presentations). They will all start at 7pm and approximately end at 8:30pm. We are still in the process of locking in each of the dates for all the upcoming sessions with Saddleback and we'll update this site as soon as we are done. Stay tuned!

My apologies for any confusion for the start date. This one is real but remember to RSVP on vNext_OC's site. Thanks. Kim
