BarCode is an event to help developers, with successful iOS and Android apps in the iTunes- and Google Play store, extend their market share the Windows platform. BarCode is on February 7th and 8th 2014 where you can code behind bars in the former prison in Rotterdam, Noordsingel 115, 3035 EM in Rotterdam.
Port existing iOS – or Android apps to the Windows platform
All information can be found on the BarCode website, starting with a “funny” description of the event.
“BarCode is a unique 24 hour long marathon for (mobile) application developers. “Heavy hitters” from Microsoft will support and help you to port your existing iOS app or Android app to the Windows platform. All the coding is done in a special place where you can take out the outside world, namely in an old Rotterdam prison. You can relax in the Xbox cell, in addition to inspiring sessions through-out the event. Access to this unique event is free. Please be aware there are a limited number of cells available”
Personally I would be really curious to find out what the Xbox cell looks like. 🙂
Subscribe for the BarCode event
BarCode is completely free of charge and only a limited number of seats are available. So please head over to the BarCode website and claim your cell in the former Rotterdam prison, or browse directly to the BarCode event-registration page via this link.
Please have a look at the BarCode checklist above. In order to get the most out of the BarCode event, its advisable to have some registrations and installations done before the event. For example a Microsoft ID, a Microsoft Developer Account and Microsoft Visual Studio (trail) are required.
It will be a lot of coding fun with the “heavy hitters” from the Microsoft Developer Platform Evangelism (DPE) group. Personally I really like the marketing thoughts around the event, and to be honest you don’t get a chance to code in a former prison every day.
Check out the cool BarCode Trailer and hopefully we see some heavy apps in the Windows Store as an outcome of BarCode !
