News-Generation-App-200x200Capital 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, Office of the Dean of the College, as soon as possible. Registration is limited to the first 100. See our Facebook event at
