    When and where are these in-person Microsoft app development sessions in the DC metro area?

    Or do we not need to attend them to participate in the contest?

      Hey Andy,

      Thanks for your interest. I just joined Microsoft recently, and I’ll be setting up my first Meetup event in May. This contest will also run again in May and again in June.

      In the meantime, those who attended the recent hackathon event at Virginia Tech (VT Hacks) are eligible for the May contest. At the hackathon, I had delivered a presentation on Unity game development. Other eligible events include Microsoft-hosted events and 3rd-party events that included any sessions taught by Microsoft.

      Stay tuned for more info for upcoming events!
