The goal of CodeFest is to create functioning Web Slices, Accelerators or other add-ons that get users excited. We are looking forward to bringing developers together in one place to answer tough questions and build add-ons for the new IE8 browser. -- Robert Reich, founder of Add-on-Con and OneRiot.
Browser enhancements can be used to make web sites more easily accessible, provide a persistent connection and make services easier to use for everyone. This four-hour CodeFest will gather developers for a fast-paced, hands-on opportunity to create Web Slices, Accelerators and add-ons. Bring your laptops and great ideas, and we'll have Internet Explorer engineering team members on hand to help out and provide the support and all the information you need to create and publicize your new Web Slice, Accelerator or add-on. Add-on-Con, the yearly conference, supports the business of building and marketing add-ons.
