When Microsoft commits to surfacing a new platform for new experiences, new business ventures, and new technologies, they usually go big. To me, this is a strategic opportunity for anyone that is a software developer as it opens up so many doors from a career perspective and at different levels of professional networking and talent acquisition.
From November 9th to November 12th, there will be a WOWZAPP Microsoft-hosted Windows 8 hackathon where there will be onsite Microsoft software engineers and technical evangelists to help you get up and running. This is a great opportunity for a developer wanting to make a name for themselves as Windows 8 is a compelling new operating system that will set the bar for business applications, games, and social media touch points for the next few years!
Come to the hackathon with your ideas on solving issues in a specific problem-space!
