Event Details

We are very sorry but this event is now completely full and there will be NO waitlist


Thomas Lewis is a Technical Evangelist at Microsoft who at 8 years old thought that there was a frog apocalypse happening in his yard. It just turned out that the rain made all the frogs come out and hop around. He has been at Microsoft for over 12 years and has evangelized everything from Visual Basic 6 to HTML5 to Design for web developers and designers world-wide. He even once ate a "century egg" while in China. When not talking about the brutality of HTML5, Design and Windows 8, he enjoys his family, wine, death metal and all things 80's. He is also bent on eradicating IE6 from the planet and will never stop, never

Some things to know/remember:

  • Bring your own laptop
  • It would be an advantage to have your laptop pre-loaded with Win 8 Consumer Preview and Visual Studio 11. If not you can install them at the event but it will save time to do it beforehand.
  • It would also be helpful if you became familiar with http://dev.windows.com before the event
  • Internet access is required and will be provided
  • Either 32 or 64 bit OS is fine
