Windows Phone to Windows 8 (WP2W8) // By UK Tech.Days
Saturday, June 16, 2012 at 10:00 AM - Sunday, June 17, 2012 at 4:00 PM (BST)
London, United Kingdom
You are invited to an exclusive 2 day special event designed to get your Windows Phone app on to Windows 8 and into the Windows Store ready for when Windows releases. Kicking off on Saturday, the 16th of June at 10am, we’ve got power, wifi, whiteboards, coke, beer, pizza, games, prizes and some quiet space that you can work in while you look at getting your app onto Windows 8. We’ve also got Microsoft folks with Windows Phone and Windows 8 experience to help you along the way.
Plus, there’ll be an attendee-voted schedule of talks on topics that are relevant or different across Windows Phone and Windows 8 but we’ll keep these out of your way if you just want to code and we’ll provide condensed materials to help out. Also, we will provide all you need to know around submitting your app to the Windows Store and even schedule a slot for the Windows 8 UK App Excellence Labs.
So, if you have a Windows Phone app in Marketplace, now’s the time to look at getting it on Windows 8. Sign up. Bring your laptop with Windows 8 & Visual Studio. Bring your app. And we do our best to help you port/migrate your app to Windows 8!
Day 1 Saturday 16th June, 10am - 9pm
Day 2 Sunday 17th June, 10am - 4pm
- To make the most out of the camp, you must already have an app published on the Windows Phone marketplace. When you register, we will request for this information (name of your app, publisher and marketplace link).
- Furthermore, you should be familiar with the fundamentals of Windows 8 app development (i.e. attended a Windows 8 for developer event or camp, or self-studied resources on the dev.windows website).
- Lastly, you need to bring your own laptop and/or any other technical gear necessary to kick start the porting/migration process from Windows Phone to Windows 8.
