Did you know that Microsoft sold more than 40 million Windows 8 licenses in just one month? Now that’s a big market in need of well-designed apps, and we pride ourselves on being at the intersection of useful and Nerdy know how.

If you’re interested in learning more about how to adapt your iOS developer skills to this new (and big deal) platform, check out this two-day seminar (Dec. 13 and 14) taught by Big Nerd Ranch in partnership with Microsoft. You’ll learn directly from our iOS experts (including our Chief Learning Nerd Aaron Hillegass) who are now building Windows apps.

There are three options: attend in person, watch the live webcast or view on demand videos. More information and registration details can be found here.

Sessions will follow a low-key, interactive format where iOS terms and concepts will be mapped to Windows alternates. You will also get hands-on time to apply what you’ve learned.

Check out the Top 10 Things iOS Developers should know about Windows 8 in Aaron’s recent talk at Microsoft Build and Eric Jeffers’ coverage of the same topic.

Most of that potential is in the hardware. The first and easiest piece to chew off is the Digital Crown.
