BUILD 2012: The dark and wet wait before the keynote

Microsoft decided to hold its BUILD 2012 developers conference inside its own world headquarters in Redmond, Washington this year. We have already reported that the company decided to build a massive outdoor tent for the event's keynote address.

We can also report that Redmond is getting hit with a lot of rain today as BUILD 2012 attendees come in to register and also have a quick meal and coffee in the breakfast tent, set up next to the keynote tent. Thankfully, Microsoft is also passing out free umbrellas to any BUILD attendee that wants one.

We will be inside the massive tent, hopefully staying dry, and will report on the keynote address for BUILD 2012 later today. At the moment, Microsoft has not revealed anything about what might be in store for us in terms of what will be discussed for the keynote. Hopefully we will get some sales updates for Surface and Windows 8.

Your loss.
VS2012 is a joy to code in. The design, the C++ IntelliSense and even the icons!

Would I be putting my hopes up too high if I said I would want to see some new API and feature improvements already? Judging from the session list and weak buzz, I think it will be a fairly boring afair, but I really hope I'm wrong here.

Actually, I'm expecting an announce of some new features for Windows 8. Some news about Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 and maybe a Platform Preview of Internet Explorer 11 would be nice.

And some sale numbers about Windows 8... Ofcourse
