Microsoft Launches


Microsoft has launched a new website for a developers conference called BUILD. This conference looks to be a re-branding of the traditional Professional Developers Conference (PDC) which is held every year in September.

BUILD is a new event that shows modern hardware and software developers how to take advantage of the future of Windows. Learn how to work with the all new touch-centric user experience to create fast, fluid, and dynamic applications that leverage the power and flexibility of the core of Windows, used by more than a billion people around the world.

Hear how the UI was designed to work seamlessly with a diversity of devices and form factors. Go behind the scenes and learn all about the new app model that allows you to create powerful new apps. All while retaining the ability to use your existing apps. Web-connected and web-powered apps built using HTML5 and JavaScript have access to the power of the PC. Touch-optimized browsing, with the full power of hardware-accelerated Internet Explorer 10 transforms your experiences with the web. BUILD is the first place to dive deep into the future of Windows.

Microsoft has re-branded its annual developers conference to match the company’s new focus towards a “new generation of modern hardware and software development.”

BUILD takes place Tuesday September 13 to 16 in Anaheim, California. Visit the website:
