6:00pm until 9:00pm
338 Johnston Hall
If you’re preparing for one of the upcoming Windows 8 events or if you just want Windows 8 on your computer, come hang out with the Microsoft folks and your friends at the Windows 8 Install Mixer.
We’ll help with upgrades and virtual machines as well as setting up Visual Studio and your Store account. There will be plenty of time to talk about app ideas, what it’s like to work at Microsoft or answer any questions you have about building on the platform.
By the time you leave the mixer you’ll be 100% prepped and ready to start building your own apps for Windows 8.
What do I need to bring?
A computer capable of running Windows 8 (in a Virtual Machine is OK too).
A copy of Windows 8. If your school participates in DreamSpark Premium you can get Windows 8 at no cost. This article walks you through getting Windows 8 from your school and installing it: http://bit.ly/win8students
