PURE IMAGINATION
Windows 8: Pure Imagination is a premier event in Canada for Windows 8 app builders & designers from students to startups to you! It starts out on Saturday morning with a keynote from Canada’s own Grant Skinner. You may know him from his amazing interactive Flash work in the past, but today he is building amazing HTML5-based apps along with fun Windows 8 games. The keynote will also have a special surprise at the end. If you can make it, you absolutely need to be there.

40 HOURS OF AWESOME
In less than 40 hours you’ll get everything you need to make your vision into the next great Canadian app, including on-site presentations, brainstorming sessions, hands-on labs and access to industry experts for guidance and treated to spontaneous moments of fun to keep your energy up.

ONE FOR THE STARTUPS
There is a special session exclusive to the startups in attendance. BizSpark Canada presents Ask a VC, your chance to have 10 minutes of one on one time with a top Canadian VC. Think of it like speed dating, but without the awkwardness and guilt after. It will be a FIFO queue so be sure to check the schedule, be early and be prepared!

HACK ALL THE THINGS!
Can’t wait to just code? We understand that hacking away on an idea is the best way to learn and explore. That’s why there will also be a 24 hour hackathon starting Saturday at 4:00pm with prizes for best student app, best UX, best app that uses Windows Azure and overall best app to be judged by our panel of experts. Not sure where to start? We’ve invited local rockstars like Shopify to pimp their API and help make the hackathon a blast.

WHY ARE YOU STILL READING THIS?
Go register now, it’s free, and all the cool kids will be there! Don’t forget to think about an epic idea for the hackathon and of course sign up for all those awesome benefits mentioned above!
