Microsoft launches buildwindows.com

For many years Microsoft has held its annual PDC conference to help developers expand their knowledge on Microsoft platforms. Microsoft is launching an entirely new event that takes a broader view of the developer community, extended far beyond the realm of the “pro developer.” On that front, Microsoft has launched a new website, http://www.buildwindows.com/ that showcases the revamped conference. 

Microsoft sates about the conference:

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.

It should be an exciting time for Winodws 8 enthusiasts as Microsoft will be showcasing the new platform detail. As we have learned through many leaks, there is a lot to like about the new platform. Microsoft is betting big with Windows 8, with increased competition in the mobile and desktop space, Microsoft is looking to hit a homerun with Windows 8.
