BUILD Session List Finally Revealed

Microsoft has finally posted the Build Session list over at Channel 9. Go check it out!

Interestingly there is only 1 session listed for Xbox (on Smart Glass), I’m guessing we will not see too much new stuff regarding Xbox at BUILD.

There are 7 sessions listed for IE11.  Should be lots of great IE stuff shown at BUILD.  Will IE11 come to Windows 7?

2-066New IE Developer Tools.F12 developer tools have been completely re-imagined for IE11.
2-067New Platform Capabilities for Advancing Web DevelopmentLearn how to take advantage of the latest Web technologies, interoperably.

4-073Inspecting & Debugging Using IE’s New F12 Developer ToolsDeep dive on inspection of markup and debugging of JavaScript with the new F12 tools.


Windows 8 and WP8 sessions are still in different buildings.  Complete unification is still some time away. Nokia is giving two presentations though.

Bill Buxton will be talking about Designing For Ubiquitous Computing, this is likely the same talk we covered earlier: Another big name Anders Hejlsberg will be there to talk about TypeScript.

MS will live stream the #bldwin Day 1 (june 26) and Day 2 (27th) keynotes. Both are 9-11 am PT and will be here:

I’m still looking to see if there is anything else interesting in the session list, send me a tip (@surilamin on twitter) if you find anything interesting!

    In 2013, Microsoft will only REVEAL things, and never anymore “show” or “tell” or “describe” anything? Like Ballmer will REVEAL every morning, what he has dumped on the toilet? Stupid, stupid journalism.. From now on, I will try to REVEAL whats in my post box when I come home, and I will also REVEAL whats in my fridge. When my wife prepares the food, she wont tell me whats cooking, she will just place the plate in front of me covered, and suddenly REVEAL, whats the lunch today.

    Lets preserve this word for something, that really counts in our miserable life, shall we? For example lets REVEAL whats the true story behind this prism sh*t.

        Not really.. “REVEAL” is my second most hated word, but only after the “SOOON” (in the context of missing functionality is never coming to MS systems in a foreseable future, only beyond the age of the known universe)
