Fort Lauderdale Windows 8 Developer Camp

Fort Lauderdale Windows 8 Developer Camp
19 April, 2012

Fort Lauderdale Marriott North
6650 N Andrews Ave
Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33309

A very worthwhile and well presented Camp on writing Win 8 apps and what Microsoft expected as criteria in those apps. I attempted a head count and gave up with an estimate of about 200 laptops in operation. If you didn't sign up early, you didn't get in - and yes, you did miss something. Thanks to Microsoft presenters, Jim Blizzard & Rachel Appel. Check out the action a a few of the screen shots HERE.
