Edinburgh – Aug/Sept – Windows Azure, Windows 8 UX and Windows 8 Dev Camps


As mentioned at the recent Scott Hanselman tour of Scotland, Microsoft are running a bunch of dev camps in Edinburgh.

These dev camps are great opportunities for you to spend a day with like-minded individuals and the talented evangelists from Microsoft. If you are looking to build apps for the soon-to-be-released Windows 8 operating system (and indeed, Windows Phone), attending a dev camps is the perfect way to kick-start your development!

They are free to attend and you will get fed and watered!

Do you want a sneak peek at some ideas Microsoft are working on?

Microsoft’s Steven Clarke is looking for five JavaScript developers to help him with a user experience study!

The study starts on 31st of July and runs until the 2nd of August – please get in touch with Steven to arrange a convenient time.

You’ll need to make your own way to Microsoft’s Edinburgh office (it’s pretty much at Waverley railway station)

You’ll have to sign an NDA to participate as the prototypes are confidential. It’s a great opportunity not only for an early look at some ideas Microsoft has, but more importantly for an opportunity to significantly influence the direction Microsoft take.

Please contact Steven if you are interested.
