Build 2017

Microsoft will be in Seattle this year for its Build 2017 developer conference, scheduled from May 10 – 12, where it will share news on the latest new technologies and exciting plans on the horizon.

Microsoft shares that there will be more than 5,000 developers joining in person as well the unaccounted millions following via live stream. Build and Seattle would be the hub for what’s next for developers.

Build is also the place to get deep technical dives into the great things we’re doing today to help developers build the next generation of intelligent apps and services. We’ve been “building” toward this for a while — for instance, Tuesday, we announced updates to our Cognitive Services that help developers build apps that understand people and the world around us.  Wednesday, we announced the current preview SDK for the Windows Creators Update is feature complete. We also announced Azure Managed Disks and VM scale sets, which bring ease of use and scale benefits of PaaS to our IaaS developers.

Here are the main technologies that Microsoft will throw more light on at Build 2017, May 10-12 in Seattle.

  • 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

Tickets will go on sale on Feb. 14 at 9:00 a.m. PST at to join in person — or online — for keynotes, deep technical sessions, hackathons and opportunities to collaborate and code with your fellow technologists and Microsoft engineers.
