Well all the speculation and anticipation of Microsoft’s next major developer conference has been answered today. The next Microsoft BUILD developer conference will be held on Microsoft’s Redmond Campus on October 30th-November 2nd.
Why so late in the year? Well the dates correspond to the week after general retail availability for Windows 8 and presumably after the Windows Phone 8 launch announcement.
What will be covered besides Windows 8? Here’s a quote from Channel 9 “And in addition to Windows 8, we will have lots of other stuff to talk about, too: Windows Azure, Windows Phone 8, Windows Server 2012, Visual Studio 2012, and much more.”
Microsoft is also promising that this event will be like any other they’ve had on the Redmond Campus in a very long time. Good stuff. Are you going? If you are registering opens at 8AM (Pacific Time) on August 8th. For those of you into symbolic gestures its 8am on 8.8.
