Microsoft Sets World Record In Software Development Marathon

Microsoft India organized an event called AppFest in Bangalore India. In AppFest,  thousands of developers from all over India and beyond attended to build apps for Windows 8. This event made history by setting a Guinness World Record for the Most Participants in a Software Development Marathon in One Location. Other than the record turnout, We can expect at least 2000 more apps from these developers in Windows Store soon. If you are from India, then I think these developers would have covered every local apps in this AppFest. Why not Microsoft organize similar AppFests around the world?

    India’s population is 1.2 billion..and most of the software engineers are in Bangalore which is known as the Silicon Valley of India..thats why they chose that location..if anyone can break this record it would be Bangalore/India again!
