Jeff Sandquist, Microsoft senior director of developer relations, compares the plan for the company's Channel 9 developer site to the way NBC treats the Olympics.
And where it should have been...
They don't call it "BUILD" for nothing!
Awesome , can't wait to see it .
So THAT'S what that thing being built outside my window is... I can see portions of the tent through the trees outside but couldn't see the whole thing from here and hadn't driven around the corner of the fields in a while.
BUILD 2012 will be on the Microsoft campus, and I know what you're thinking ... if it's not in some cavernous convention hall, then it must be a dialed-down version of last year's event, etc. ... but don't be confused: this will be unlike anything we've held on our corporate campus in a long time. More details to come .
Now you know what we meant by this. It will be a great event here and also on Channel 9.
Fun times... The team is working like crazy and can't wait to see you all.
@jeffsand: I've been to conferences that were deliberately close to the host company's campus despite logistics challenges. I can say that they've always been great. It encourages huge amounts of employee participation and networking. You end up with better sessions and much better answers.
Can't wait to get underway ....
