Why pre-Startup Weekend Bootcamps will improve Startup Weekend events

During Startup Weekend events there isn’t much time for attendees to learn and implement new technologies. By partnering with Microsoft, we can take advantage of expert engineers and evangelists all over the world to teach Startup Weekend attendees. The goal is to enable developers, designers and entrepreneurs to build high quality Windows Store apps by helping them understand and use the latest and greatest platform technologies and services that Windows 8 has to offer.

Who is the target audience for the event?

The primary audiences for these events are app and web developers, designers and entrepreneurs who are attending a Startup Weekend.
