The Startup Weekend Windows 8 Developer Camp is a fun, no-fluff event for developers, by developers.  You’ll learn from experts in a low-key, interactive way how to leverage skills you probably already have (HTML5/JavaScript) to create rich, interactive apps ready for the Windows 8 store, and ready for Sunday’s final demo of what you’ve accomplished at Startup Weekend.  Come early for ThinkBig partner’s Waffle breakfast [http://startupwafflesgew-es2.eventbrite.com/#], then join us at 10:00 am – 2:00 pm for the developer BootCamp.

You don’t want to go to BootCamp without “being prepared”.  The Windows 8 Developer BootCamp is all about learning from experts and getting hands on. You’ll need to bring your own laptop and have it preloaded with all the tools and SDKs on the Downloads Page.  Startups should visit BizSpark which is the program Microsoft offers to qualifying Startups and Entrepreneurs with free software (Windows 8, Visual Studio, Expression, Azure Cloud, Dynamics CRM, Windows Phone etc.), tools, support, and other resources.  You can sign up here.  After the BootCamp, check out GenerationApp.com and turn your ideas into Win8 apps!

Later that afternoon I’ll have office hours at ThinkBig between 2-4pm.  If you have questions about Windows 8, Azure, or want to practice pitching your Startup Weekend idea, sign up at http://ohours.org/tcowan
