Upcoming Windows 8 Events in Reston, Chevy Chase, and NYC

Unless you've been living under a rock, you're probably aware that Microsoft recently released the Consumer Preview of Windows 8, and if you're a developer, you may even have already downloaded the Visual Studio 11 Beta to try your hand at the new Metro style apps in XAML or JavaScript.

What you might still be looking for are some great opportunities to learn more about developing for Windows 8, and I think I can help you out there.

Next week, in Reston, VA on March 27th, and in Chevy Chase, MD on March 29th, we are holding Windows 8 Developer Camp events, featuring myself and Frank La Vigne, where we'll spend the first half of the day filling your brain with all things Metro for Windows 8, and the second half of the day we all start hacking on some apps.

Please note that these are HANDS-ON events, so please bring a laptop, preferably with the Windows 8 Consumer Preview and Visual Studio 11 Beta installed, so we can maximize the hands-on coding time for everyone.

And if you are in the NYC area, or will be around NYC on April 19th, you should register for our free, full-day Windows 8 Developer event there. It'll be a great opportunity to get immersed in the latest info on Metro style apps, and whether you're a XAML guru, a JavaScript jockey, or a complete newb, you will walk away with some great knowledge to get you ready for one of the biggest developer opportunities, ever!

Here are the registration links for all these events, if you haven't signed up yet:
