Microsoft officially announced the date and venue of their annual developer conference Build. Build 2018 Developer Conference is scheduled for May 7-9, 2018 at Washington State Convention Center, Seattle, WA.
Build 2018 registration will open from February 15. Once registration opens, you can register yourself from here. The full conference pass is going for $2,495 which does not include hotel pricing.
At this moment, Microsoft didn’t published the entire schedule of seminars, keynotes and conferences. But here’s few thing that Microsoft likely to talk about. As you know Microsoft already rolling out Windows 10 Redstone 4 preview builds, but by the time of time of Build 2018 Windows 10 Redstone 4 will be available publicly. So, we might get the first glimpse of Windows 10 Redstone 5 and the road-map of Windows at the event.
Furthermore, the Progressive Web Apps for Windows 10 will be one of the most focused topic. And we are expecting that Microsoft will officially introduce Windows Core OS, Project Andromeda, Polaris, Composable Shell and more. The company might also officially reveal their plans for Windows 10 S Mode and how it is going to fit in to Windows 10 Home SKU.
Microsoft will undoubtedly talk about AI, cognitive services, Azure, Always Connected PCs and the Windows Defender. We are also expecting that company might introduce their own Always connected PC under Surface brand. And also there will be a few surprises too! Maybe the mysterious foldable Surface Phone? Who knows? Let us know what you expect in a comment below?
This year Build 2018 overlaps with Google’s I/O developer conference, which is scheduled for May 8-10 in Mountain View. However this is most likely accidental, as both companies book venues for their conferences in advance. We will be covering Build 2017 live for our readers.
