Capital University will host partners from Microsoft Corporation for a day of exploring and app-creating, as more than 100 attendees will create apps for free submission to the Microsoft Windows 8 Store.
The Generation App program, known for its collaboration with technology incubators, will mark its kickoff for a series of college campus visits with the beta event on Capital University’s Bexley campus from 9 am to 5 pm Saturday, February 16, in the Bridge of Learning.
Microsoft evangelists visiting Capital will include alumnus Brian Prince (’95), principal evangelist for Microsoft Azure; Martin Schray, academic evangelist for Microsoft; Bill Sempf, author of the book .NET for Dummies; Kristopher Schultz (’95), lab director at Resource and more.
Students will work in one-on-one sessions and in groups with developers to create, develop and submit apps for a chance to win a coding session, a tour of Microsoft Studios and a sneak peek of an upcoming Microsoft game.
Capital students should register now — spaces are limited. If you’re interested, please register by contacting Liz Cook at firstname.lastname@example.org, Office of the Dean of the College, as soon as possible. Registration is limited to the first 100.
