The Ocho

The Ocho is a new group that will focus on Windows 8 development in the greater Seattle area.The development opportunities around this new operating system are huge and the entry gate is wide. Come in with .NET experience, HTML/CSS/JS experience, C++ experience, or even no experience at all. Build an app and get it in front of millions of eyes.We'll split our time between training and actually writing code.
