  You are invited to theWAVEFRONT & MICROSOFT WORKSHOP:
How HTML5, Windows 8 & WP8 Play Together

Wavefront and Microsoft are back with hands-on coding workshops! Calling 
all developers and designers – we are here to support your app building 
and get you prepared to submit it to the Windows Phone Store.

In just over two years, the Windows Phone Store has grown to well over 
135,000 apps and games with no sign of slowing down. With an application 
ecosystem that continues to  accelerate, now is the time to build new 
apps for the platform and port existing apps to Windows Phone Store.

Responding to the increased traction of HTML5, this workshop will give 
you an in-depth look at HTML5 and Windows Phone,and how the two can play 
together.  We will also see how HTML5 factors into the development for 
Windows 8 and how web developers can leverage their skills in this space.

Who should attend?
•    Developers with an iOS or Android app ready to port to Windows 
Phone and/or Windows 8
•    Web developers interested in learning about how HTML5 can be used 
on Windows Phone & Windows 8
•   Mobile app developers interested in learning how to get into the 
mobile web with hybrid apps for Windows Phone and native HTML apps for 
Windows 8
•    Experienced developers wanting to learn more about the Windows 
Phone opportunity
•   Previous Windows Code Camp attendees - we have taken your feedback 
into account and will provide deep dives and new content!

Why develop apps for Windows Phone?
