The last time I tried to write a program was when I was at university using a program called Delphi.  I knew back then that I wasn’t going to set the world on fire with my jqueries and there was nothing rapid about my application development.   My peers in our software development team tell me that technology has moved on since then and the whole process is much faster.  They are working with people wanting to develop applications for Windows 8 and you could be one of them.

The team has set up a series of camps to help individuals develop their first Windows 8: 

The Windows 8 Camps have been designed to show you how to build a Windows 8 app. You can tailor the day to make it as personally productive and rewarding as possible. You can work on your own projects with assistance from Windows 8 experts, network with others and also have the option of attending short tutorial sessions on Windows 8 related topics.
