Hosting hackathons is a great way to find young talent and get core apps made for your burgeoning ecosystem, as well Microsoft knows. That’s why the company is hosting a new WOWZAPP hackathon that will take place from November 9th to 11th. Participants will be able to work up close and personal with Microsoft’s new platform in order to create new applications and services. The hackathons are being organized all over the world, so you can check to see if one is near your location if you’d like to participate.
The events will feature advice from Microsoft developers, as well as music and free food so if you’re planning on delving into the world of Windows 8 app development, it could be a great opportunity for you to get some experience and advice from senior developers.
