Yesterday, Microsoft opened up the registration process for Build 2014 developer conference. Build 2014 will take place at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, April 2 – 4. The conference got sold out today. I think the steep registration amount of over $2000 is the reason Build 2014 took about 24 hours for selling out all its tickets. Microsoft is expected to talk about Windows 9 and the developer story behind the future of Windows.
Build is our premier developer event, targeted at people who want to create experiences that span PC, tablet, phone, console, server, and cloud, and at this year’s event we will share what is coming for Windows, Windows Phone, Windows Azure, Windows Server, Xbox, Visual Studio and more. Perhaps even more importantly, we’ll be talking about what Microsoft is doing to protect your technology investments, regardless of their form: tools, skills, language preferences, code, and apps, to name a few. One of the key ways we’ll do this is through client platform convergence around a common core – spanning the application platform, browser platform, apps, and APIs – in a way that makes it easy to reuse your skills and existing code. This means it will be much easier to build one app for all Windows devices while at the same time having the ability to take advantage of device-specific capabilities across form factors, screen sizes, and local hardware functionality.
If you missed registering, keep an eye on the site as Microsoft will open up for few more seats in the future.
