The hackathon has ended

Microsoft and CoderCharts are proud to announce our Windows 8 Online App-a-thon to promote the release of, you guessed it, Microsoft’s new operating system: Windows 8.

Windows 8 apps can be created using JavaScript/HTML5, C#, VB.NET, or C++. Each language can access the full power of the Windows 8 runtime to create awesome apps that run on tablets, laptops, or desktops, including the new Microsoft Surface and Surface Pro

Coders, Designers, Thinkers, Problem-Solvers - anyone who has an idea for the Next Big App ... Come and join the fun. Be the next viral app right when the operating system is released.

On top of that, Microsoft is sponsoring prizes. The winning app from each category (Utility / LifeStyle / Edutainment) will receive $1000 value in gift cards. To be eligible for prizes, entries must be submitted by legal US residents / teams with at least one member who is legal US resident (for details, see the Official Rules).

Registration is now open.

Submission will open on August 17, 2012. In the meantime, get yourself geared up for Windows 8 on the Resources page.
