Microsoft Universal Windows App Challenge
We are excited to announce the Microsoft Universal Windows App Challenge during the AT&T Hackathon. Please see below for the Details.
What Are Universal Windows Apps?
With Universal Windows Apps, Microsoft has made it easier than ever before for developers to deliver a uniform, outstanding application experience across phones, tablets, and PCs running Microsoft Windows. Visual Studio 2013 radically accelerates your ability to build solutions that target multiple device types, enabling you to centralize all your business logic, and even leverage common UI across both as well. You can find more about building a Universal App here.
Any Windows app submitted during the AT&T Hackathon is eligible for a chance to win* the Windows Universal App Challenge irrespective of which accelerator you choose. The challenge requires you to register your entry before the end of the AT&T Hackathon, for judging.
First Prize: Surface Pro 3
Second Prize: Nokia Lumia 1520
Third Prize: Dell Venue 8
