October: Windows 8 Install-fest and Hack Night

Following the "Practice, Don't Preach" motto this month, we're running a Windows 8 Install-fest and Hack night.  The idea is simple:

1. No Windows? No Problem! Want to install Windows 8 into a VM, bootable VHD or some other device and you just haven't had the time to download or install it yet?  Bring your gear along and we'll sort that out for you.  Just sign that insurance waiver first! :-D

2. Got Windows? Great! It's time to understand how Metro apps work in more detail. What better way than to set aside some specific time and do some exploring and learning with others! Come along and poke Windows hard in the gut! You can try and build something awesome in one night if you want (and we hope you do), but far more importantly we want you to learn something and share what you learned with others.

For the record, we don't care if you want to use HTML/JS/CSS, C# or C++, heck we'll even let you use VB.NET if you really, really want to.  Whatever the case, come for the fun, the learning and the pizza!

See you there!

And as always, RSVP via the poll on the site.
