The original BUILD event in LA had lots of stuff about both drivers and apps for the new OS (Windows 8).
The next two have been much more focused on app development only (on a variety of topics like Azure, Windows Phone, Windows Store apps). This is great for app developers, less so for folks who work on devices and systems.
For the 2014 BUILD event, what will the focus be? Would it be possible to reveal at least some information about the agenda ahead of time? As someone who works on devices, drivers, etc., It is very difficult to justify attending BUILD without knowing if there will be some content other than just app related topics.
Registration starting at 9:00AM, is it a subtle sign ?
They announce the agenda just before the conference starts.
Yeah... Everything is pretty great about Build, except for the agenda planning. It comes last second, so you can't proactively plan anything. - At all -
The first build was in Anaheim, not LA. The agenda wasn't released prior to attending. Same thing for the Seattle and last years S.F BUILD.
BUILD is 25% press release info - showing off new products or showing off updates for current products and 75% developer focused. Microsoft doesn't want to give any early information because it would take away from the press release aspect.
I can't see how they wouldn't talk about Windows 9, the Windows 8.1 Spring Update, Windows Phone 8.1, and XBOX One... Yeah... You won't know for sure until you pick your stuff up.
Anyone know when they expect to publish the agenda/sessions? Getting pretty close now.
If it's like the last 3 /BUILD's it will be published (or rather handed out) on April 1st when you pick up your attendee package.
Makes it quite hard to plan your days then... and for some, may not actually be worth attending.... But hey, company freebie and always good dev event.... :)
