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.
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.
