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
