IMPORTANT: Please register at http://aka.ms/fallw8app2 so we can have an accurate headcount for attendance. In this app workshop, attendees will be introduced to the concepts of using a publicly-available API as the basis for a Windows Store or Windows Phone app. We'll walk through one of the APIMASH starter kits (kit TBA). We'll also discuss the concepts of rapidly building a minimum viable product, getting it published, taking feedback, iterating on the idea, and updating the app. And we'll also discuss the basics of marketing your app, and available resources for that purpose. This event will include both lecture and hands-on time. This is the second of three events in the series. You may attend any or all of the events, as each will cover a different starter kit. IMPORTANT

To participate in the hands-on portion of these events you MUST bring a PC with the following installed:

  • Windows 8 (any x86 or x64 version will work fine)

  • Visual Studio 2012

    (for Windows Store apps, you'll need Visual Studio 2012 Express for Windows 8, or higher. For Windows Phone apps, you'll need Visual Studio 2012 Express for Windows Phone, or higher) We will NOT have PCs available for attendee use, so please come prepared if you want to work hands-on. If you need a copy of either Windows 8 or Visual Studio 2012, head over to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/apps/br229516/.

    For Mac users, there are a variety of boot and virtualization options you can use to run Windows 8 and Visual Studio, which are documented here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/jj945492.aspx Please visit http://bit.ly/18E7IRz for more details on this event and the other workshops in the series.
