i saw lot of crowd in KTPO during the app fest..Its easy in India to gather crowd.But how many working apps were developed..it seems many were there only for freebies/certificate..

Hope to see developed apps in win app store soon.


Right off the assembly line
incredibly excited to see what kinds of apps developers build for Windows. I make it a habit to regularly check the Windows Store for new and interesting apps. I remember over a year ago this week, we previewed Windows 8 to developers for the first time (wow, has it really been a year?!) and I got to witness their excitement first-hand. Since then, there have been more than 750 Windows developer events held in over 50 countries worldwide – and more than 200,000 developers have attended those events. And developer momentum continues as we move toward the general availability of Windows 8 on October 26th. We announced BUILD 2012 a few weeks ago. And today I get to tell you about a developer event happening this week which looks to be pretty incredible…

Starting at September 21st, an 18-hour coding marathon called Windows AppFest begins in what is known as the “Silicon Valley of India” - Bangalore. Thousands of developers from all over India and beyond will descend upon the event to build apps for Windows. This event represents an opportunity for developers to come together to learn how to build great apps and network with Microsoft programmers and design specialists. Developers will get help and guidance on preparing their apps for certification and ultimately submission into the Windows Store.
