You must bring a laptop. Don’t forget that power supply. We recommend more than 1 Gb of RAM and at least 10 Gb of free disk space. External USB or Firewire drives really help. We will help you get organized and install the right software for continued virtual fun! We have wireless Internet access. If not, make sure that all required software is on your machine when you arrive.

Windows 8 makes it easy for you to build exciting apps that let your customers focus on their important tasks. You write Windows UI style apps using familiar technologies like HTML5, JavaScript, and Cascading Style Sheets, Level 3 (CSS3), or XAML, with C++, C#, or Microsoft Visual Basic code-behind. This way you can rapidly prototype, refine, and sell your apps.

At some point as you develop your Windows 8 app you will want to save some data or settings to the local machine. In this hands on lab we will show how to save both data and settings to the users machine.
