Earlier this week the notorious Microsoft leaker WalkingCat revealed the company’s annual Build developer conference could be scheduled for early May in Seattle, just before Google I/O. Turns out that things are now more formal as Microsoft has confirmed the leaked dates and will soon open registration for the conference.

Registration will kick off on February 15, 2018, and potential attendees are being urged to visit this website and save the date. Microsoft is also tagging this year’s conference as “exploring the future of technology” with opportunities to “create tomorrow,” “imagine tomorrow,” and “code tomorrow.”

Registration hours will be Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Pacific Time. Full conference passes will cost $2,495, providing access to all sessions, content, and the Expo hall plus all conference meals. Coincidently, Build 2018 runs the same week as Google’s I/O conference, so it will be interesting to see if attendance is impacted.
