Microsoft’s Windows 8 App Festival in India helped the Redmond-based software giant make its way into the Guinness Book of World Records, as no less than 2,567 developers from all over the world worked at the same time on Windows 8 apps.
The event took place in Bangalore, India and was specifically organized by Microsoft to show everybody that creating apps for the newly-designed Windows 8 is fairly easy.
Of course, this also helps Microsoft promote the upcoming Windows 8 operating system that will go on sale worldwide in late October. The public unveiling of the software will take place on October 25.
Developers were requested to create applications for the Windows 8 platform from any of the available categories in Windows Store, as part of an 18-hour coding marathon that ended a few hours ago.
