Microsoft Developer Camps

Microsoft Developer Camps

Interesting new website from Microsoft for their Developer Camps.

The URL is http://www.devcamps.ms/

It basically is a hub for Windows Phone, Windows Azure, Web technologies and Windows 8 training.

When you click on the Windows Camps link you are taken to a page where you can search for a location near you to sign up for Windows 8 Training.

What are Windows Camps?

From Microsoft:

Windows 8 Developer Camps are free, fun, no-fluff events for developers, by developers. You learn from experts in a low-key, interactive way and then get hands-on time to apply what you’ve learned.

The training is free and being offered at tons of locations worldwide.

Some of the documentation reads:

Windows 8 changes everything.

Combining the broad reach of Windows, best-in-class developer tools, a reimagined user experience, support for new chipsets, and a built-in Store with industry-leading business terms — Windows 8 is the largest developer opportunity, ever.

Join us for this free, full-day event designed to share all the knowledge you need to start building Metro-style applications for Windows 8 – today. We’ll begin by showing you how to use Visual Studio to code fast, fluid, immersive and beautiful Metro-style applications in HTML5/JavaScript, XAML/C# and C/C++. Your existing investments in these languages carry forward, making Windows a no-compromise platform for developers.

Whatever language you choose, your app gets deep integration with the Windows shell, including notifications, live tiles, deep links, and contracts with other apps. And now you can build once and support all Windows customers, no matter what type of PC they have – from tablets to laptops to convertibles to desktops.

We’ll cap the day off with an open, hands-on lab session. It’s the perfect opportunity to get your dream application underway, or finish that app you’ve already started – with Windows 8 experts available to guide you through every step. Bring your laptop to join in the fun and show off your killer app.

Get started now!

This is exactly the strategy that Microsoft needs to be executing and I for one have to applaud the move.

Head over to the site and sign up for a free training session.
