Microsoft BizSpark and Windows 8 are partnering with Startup Weekend to bring hands-on education and training to at least 50 cities around the world through a series of Windows 8 Bootcamps.

These Bootcamps will take place before select Startup Weekend events where mentors will work closely with entrepreneurs to give them inside access to Windows 8, educate them on Windows Store apps and help them succeed during the weekend.

Entrepreneurs can put what they learned into practice by building Windows apps during Startup Weekend and can then take their apps to the next level by attending Windows 8 dev camps or Labs where they can get expert training on Windows 8 and feedback from top engineers and designers.
