Come to VanSLUG's HackFest at BCIT on Saturday April 16, 2011 and join Windows Phone experts (including Atley Hunter from the recent Windows Phone 7 Boot Camp) and fellow developers for a full day of coding and learning. Bring your application ideas and find out how easy it is to develop and deploy to the world market! Enjoy the company of experts and developers of all levels as we work together to build, test and deploy the next generation of killer apps. Each Developer that attends this event and puts their first application into The Great Canadian Apportunity Competition will receive a token to grant them one year free membership to Marketplace! Competition details can be found here: http://http://www.greatcanadianapportunity.ca/
