It’s been an exciting month for Microsoft devs, with the Windows 8/Visual Studio 2012 launch happening, but if you’re feeling overwhelmed by it all you wouldn’t be the only one. In aid of this ‘where the *&(% do I start’ conundrum, the Ann Arbor .NET Developer’s Group are hosting a Windows 8 and Visual Studio 2012 Install Fest in November 2012, and Mindscape are on board as a sponsor. So, if you’re a Microsoft dev in the Michigan area and you want to install Windows 8 and/or Visual Studio 2012 with some other devs (and perhaps get or share advice on developing your Windows 8 apps), then the Install Fest is for you.
The event allows developers to bring their laptops along and get experienced help with installing Windows 8, Visual Studio 2012, and other development tools (e.g Metro Elements – WinRT controls for Windows 8 Development). If it’s help you need with developing your apps, there’ll also be experts bursting with the need to share their knowledge, so you can be on the road to making killer Win8 apps.
As well as all this help with getting up to speed on developing for Windows 8 with Visual Studio, attendees go in the draw to win a Microsoft Surface – but you’ve got to register to be in to win! The event is scheduled for Wednesday, November 14th, 2012 in Ann Arbor – Michigan.
