Build starts tomorrow


We are only one day away from Build and I’m looking forward to continuing our conversation with developers coming together from across industries and from around the world. Over the next three days we will be immersing developers, tech professionals and press in technical content and demos at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. The action begins Wednesday at 8:30 AM PDT with a keynote featuring Satya Nadella and Terry Myerson.

At Build 2016, developers will get an up-close look at new technologies and innovations from the senior executives and technical leaders.  We will showcase how partners are bringing these technologies to life and we’ll have numerous technical sessions where we dive deep into the areas you’ve told us matter most.

While thousands will be joining us in San Francisco, many more will be watching online – in real-time or on-demand. Our Channel 9 team will broadcast keynotes, top sessions and interviews live throughout the event and online viewers can select from a broad range of technology sessions that will cover existing technology investments in Azure, Windows, Office or Visual Studio; and showcase some of the new ways developers are making the most of these platforms. All remaining sessions will be made available on-demand within about 24 hours of presentation time.

Tomorrow morning we will kick off Build with our Day One keynote. You can see the keynote schedule below.

Over the past year we have continued to build (pun intended) on our vision of empowering every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. We rely on engagement and input from the developer community.  Please join the conversation on social media with the hashtag #Build2016.
