Microsoft's technology event TechDays, which promotes application development particularly for its recently launched Windows 8 platform, reached its last destination of the National Capital today after covering 50 cities across the country in the last four months.

The one-day event here saw participation of over 700 IT enthusiasts and professionals, the software giant said in a release.

The event that was kicked off in October 2012 and covered 50 cities saw over 15,000 participants, it added.

"The all-India developer and IT pro extravaganza touched ... 50 cities in the last four months, providing them a unique learning experience and helping them convert their ideas into real apps," the software giant said.

TechDays gives opportunities to bring Indian developers to shape the apps ecosystem across multiple devices and hardware forms, providing developers the prospect to maximise their revenues, it added.

The event was kicked off at Mysore in October 2012 and covered cities like Trivandrum, Hyderabad, Coimbatore, Chennai, Kolkata, Mumbai, Bhubaneswar, Indore, Ahmedabad and Chandigarh, it said.

"TechDays provides expert guidance on site and deep product exploration to fast track ideas to the app journey on Windows 8, Windows Phone 8, Office 2013, Office 365 and Windows Azure platforms," Microsoft India General Manager (DPE) Joseph Landes said.

TechDays covered more than three cities every week helping professionals and students with the latest, cutting edge Microsoft technologies and equip them with valuable insights and best practices, he added.

"The Windows platform has unlimited potential for us for developing any category of apps with a great revenue-sharing model," Technology Architect Sumit Dutta, who is the creator of the Toddler Count app, said.
