Open to students who wish to code apps for Windows 8, MS- new operating system, these students will be provided with free software such as Visual Studio Express for Windows 8, and with free Windows Store registration codes through Microsoft DreamSpark on the day. This will enable them to attempt creation of broad-based consumer applications with many uses. The apps can then be submitted for evaluation before being displayed at the store.
The focus will be on broad-based consumer applications, incorporating education, games, apps for social good etc.
In addition to submitting the apps for evaluation for a chance to get on the Microsoft Store, the training and experience received via this program will boost the students’ employability and create a more capable developer ecosystem in the country. The developers will code under supervision of MS mentors and then submit their apps online.
