The platform provides unique features like Live Tiles, Contracts and Cloud services, so you can engage your audience more deeply in new and creative ways. There’s never been a more exciting time to be a designer and we’re pleased to invite you to a 2 day hands-on Windows 8 UX Design training to learn how to design great apps.

During the course of the workshop, we’ll have experts on Windows 8 app design on hand to review your UX and design and answer your questions.
