(opens in a new window) Register (opens in a new window) now for this two-day workshop which is designed to give higher-education faculty from a broad spectrum of disciplines a jump-start in adopting Windows 8 app development and Windows Phone development into the curriculum. The content covered is applicable to a variety of teaching scenarious including: introductory programming, web development, HCI, senior project/capstone, and stand-alone elective courses.

The content covered will include and extend our official design curriculum available on Faculty Connection and will also cover additional content intended for those wanting to “go pro” and publish apps in market.

The content is arranged so that if you are schedule-constrained and can only attend one of the days, that each day stands alone and will be useful and complete no matter which day you are able to attend. The first day tends towards more introductory material, and the second day towards content that will get more technically rigorous as the day progresses.
