What is it?
Microsoft’s annual conference geared towards software and web developers. Away from its spiritual home of San Francisco, Build serves a valuable purpose for Microsoft in presenting Windows developers from around the world with its new and upcoming technologies. The following list, outlined by Microsoft, hints at what we can expect to see at Build:
- Mixed-reality experiences
- Cutting edge, intelligent cloud apps
- Simplified end-to-end dev ops experiences
- Mobile experiences for nearly any device
- Apps that make your customers more productive
- AI-powered apps we have yet to imagine
With the advent of Creator’s Update just around the corner, attendees will be eager to experience the VR design capabilities that have characterised Windows’ latest instalment. The third Redstone update, as promised last year, may also receive some exposure.
Recent findings in a Windows Insider Build have hinted to a project in the works, codenamed ‘Cloud’. Rather than referencing a cloud-based platform, thoughts are that Microsoft have a cross-device operating system in the works. Little else is known of Windows Cloud, though we may discover more at Build conference.
