Microsoft has announced that its next iteration of the BUILD conference will be held June 26-28 in San Francisco and registration opens at 09:00am PDT, April 2, 2013. Microsoft has also finally comes forward and recognized the name ‘Blue’ as a set of internal plans.
Frank Shaw penned a post that talks about the future plans for Microsoft where he says that leaders from across Microsoft have been working on plans to advance their devices and services; these plans have the codename of Blue.
With a remarkable foundation of products in market and a clear view of how we will evolve the company, product leaders across Microsoft are working together on plans to advance our devices and services, a set of plans referred to internally as “Blue.”
This is the first time Microsoft has talked about Blue publically and with the BUILD conference being held in late June, the summer launch of the platform is looking promising.
While certainly not the first BUILD conference, the event has for the past two years been held in the fall so this marks a disruption to their traditional schedule for the conference.
Microsoft has stated that at BUILD they will share updates about Windows, Windows Server, Windows Azure, Visual Studio. Notably, Windows Phone is left off that list, but at this time, we wouldn’t read much into it as Windows Phone typically has its own conference.
The conference is not that far away and we look forward to seeing what Microsoft has been working on for these past few months since the launch of Windows 8 in October.
