What we're about

This meetup has been created to gather the developers community in UAE. Open to all developers, the idea is to share technical feedback & learn all together about developing web or mobile applications with several programming languages such as HTML5 & JavaScript, C#/VB or C++.

Throughout each gathering, we will highlight a Microsoft developer tool (Windows 8 apps development & UX/UI guidelines, leveraging cloud based backend solutions with Azure, Nokia platform, etc...). Moreover we will put a Microsoft app community project in the spotlight.

So if you're are a developer interested in targeting the Microsoft platform we invite you to contact us through meetup and propose your own app to demo.
