A Great Windows 8 Event - Be Sure to Join Our Next One

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2012-07-24

Right before the Founder Showcase on Wednesday we hosted a special luncheon with Windows 8. Over 50 guests attended this informative workshop, where Windows 8 experts reviewed how to design apps with Metro principles and the Windows personality, and the business opportunity Windows 8 represents for app developers. 

Microsoft also gave away four Windows 8 Nokia Lumia phones to four lucky people! Winners included;

  • Fabrice Gould (Diggen, Los Angeles Founder Institute) 
  • Steve Iverson (Injekt, Founder Institute Mentor)
  • Aswath Sridhar
  • Srinivas Chamarthy

Special thanks go out to Microsoft for hosting this great event, and to our two great speakers;
