Microsoft to join TechEd Madrid InnoJam with Windows 8 tablets!

Only three weeks to go till the start of the InnoJam at TechEd 2012 in Madrid, and I am very excited to announce that Microsoft is joining in the fun as a partner for the Innojam! Microsoft technical experts will be with us throughout the entire event to help all the participants who want to develop their first apps for the brand new Windows 8 platform.


And they will not come empty-handed, since they will bring with them a couple of the latest Windows 8 tablet computers and development tools to support you in developing a mobile app on this exciting new platform.

Microsoft and SAP will soon start to provide you with more technical information and our experts are eager to collaborate with you upfront in this forum and then physically at the Innojam in Madrid. Here’s what you will hear about in the following weeks:

  • The  New Windows 8 UI Experience
  • Introduction to the Development tools for developing Windows 8 Apps
  • My first Windows 8 app
  • How can I integrate Bing Map in my App
  • Accessing SAP through OData services published by SAP NetWeaver Gateway

Let us know what you think and share with us your specific interests and questions related to developing your Windows 8 Apps.

See you all in Madrid! And if you have not registered for the InnoJam yet,  do it now!

      Hay Julien, will they be Windows RT surface machines or just standard Windows 8 pro surface machines ?

      I wonder whether a SUP connection to Hana/SAP would also work as the MBO is C# based ?

      Hi David,

      we will be on the InnoJam with x86 based tablets, only.

      The Surface Pro is not available yet, but we will have a couple of devices there from various OEMs, depending on their availability.

      As you might know, Windows 8 will be launched on Oct, 26, there are many new devices that will be launched at the same time. So I'm actually hunting at various OEMs to get there devices to SAPPHIRE, where Microsoft is having a nice booth (booth 1003) in hall 10. Here we also plan to present the Surface RT device.

      Btw: I will also post in a few days a blog entry on how you could create a Windows-to-Go stick, that you can use on many of the actual Notebooks out their  to just play around with Windows 8 and it's tools without affecting your installed OS.

      Please stay!
