Microsoft returning in April to San Francisco for second Edge Web Summit

Following last year's 'Project Spartan Web Summit' event in Google's backyard of San Francisco, Microsoft is returning to the city on April 4, 2016 to host a one-day event, at which web developers can meet directly with the team that builds Edge and its rendering engine.

The event is free to register, with details for that to follow "later this month" on the Microsoft Edge Dev Blog. Last year, developers from around the world, representing over 100 organizations, showed up for a first look at Microsoft Edge and to chat directly to the team building it.

This year, developers can learn more about Microsoft's partially open-sourced JavaScript engine, as well as powerful techniques for building accessible sites, and what the company has planned for the year ahead, noting that developers can also expect "a few surprises!"

Microsoft Edge is still very much in development, with more features to come in the future; so if you are a web developer and can be in San Francisco on April 4th, it might be worth checking out.

The event will begin just a few days after Microsoft's Build 2016 developer conference, which will also be held in San Francisco. Registrations for that event opened today - but according to Microsoft, they sold out in just one minute.
