Microsoft's BUILD 2012 registration is now open - Sold out

Microsoft has opened the registration desk for its BUILD 2012 conference and if you want to attend the event, you should head on over to buildwindows.com as the conference will likely fill up quickly.

If you are a developer for any of Microsoft's various product lines, this is the conference you want to attend. This conference will help you get the most out of Microsoft's Windows platform and accelerate your development cycles by being able to assist you with all of your technical challenges and questions. 

With registration now open, hopefully you have gotten your expense pushed through the corporate red tape by now so that you can attend Microsoft's BUILD conference that will take palce October 30 - November 2nd at Microsoft's corporate offices in Redmond, Washington. The cost is $1595 for early registration (limited to 500), full price of $2095, and there are 100 academic spots open as well.

[Update] Well that didn't take very long, the conference is now booked full.

Bummed... because I'm a developer trying to get into the MS Build conference. Wonder how many people signed up JUST to get the new hardware. Google I/O sold out in a minute (or it appeared to sell out before the registration page even went live).

Paid the early bird price! Looks like I've been lucky...

Last time it took more than a month before the Build sold out!
I guess Microsoft has managed to create as much hype as Google/apple for their conference.

This ones going to be way more busy than BUILD 2011, that's for sure. The new VS, Win8 and winrt stuff, plus WP8 etc. It's looking like it's going to be huge.

I'm guessing people this year will get a free surface vs a free samsung tablet?

Nothing is free; look at the price tag to get in.

It may seem like a lot but that price gets you direct hands on with MS coders, it's not just the keynotes and the demos and the free tablet. The large number of workshops they do throughout the event is worth it for developers.

The early bird and academic stuff is sold out =/... Not paying that much for a surface pro when I can just buy iconia w710 or surface rt

If you are balking at the price of the conference, maybe it isn't for you. The people that would really benefit from it likely have work paying for it anyway.

Those academic registration prices are way too high.

Unless you get a free Surface out of it, that'd be sweet
