Build 2012 announced, starts October 30th 2012 at the Microsoft Campus


Rumors recently suggested that Microsoft may hold an event similar to that of the Build developers conference which was held in California last September. That even focused on Windows 8 and its development. Now, Microsoft has taken the wraps off the new Build 2.0 or Build 2012 conference.

So there you go. Microsoft has announced the new Build conference and it takes place at Microsoft’s Campus in Redmond, Washington from October 30th, 2012 to November 2nd, 2012. This confirms rumors that suggested that Microsoft would hold an event similar to the Build Developers conference which took place last year. But unlike last year, this conference will be held right on Microsoft’s doorsteps. “BUILD 2012 will be on the Microsoft campus, and I know what you’re thinking … if it’s not in some cavernous convention hall, then it must be a dialed-down version of last year’s event, etc. … but don’t be confused: this will be unlike anything we’ve held on our corporate campus in a long time. More details to come . And, as we talked about in the January post, if you’ve gone to a Microsoft developer event, you know that most of the speakers and participants are from our engineering teams, so a campus event puts you in the thick of things along with the engineers directly responsible for our products and the platform opportunities they represent. This one’s not to be missed,” Microsoft added.

Microsoft plans to talk about Windows 8, Windows Azure, Windows Phone 8, Windows Server 2012, Visual Studio 2012, and more. Registration for the conference opens August 8th. You can check out the Build 2012 website at
