Registration is officially open for Microsoft’s Build 2017 developer conference in Seattle. The event will run at the Washington State Convention Center from May 10th to 12th, at $2,195 per head.

Though that sounds like a steep price tag, it remains the same as last year. For their money, developers will see interaction from Bill Gates and Satya Nadella.

“With more than 5,000 developers joining us in person and millions following via live stream, Build and Seattle will be the hub for what’s next,” said a company spokesperson.

“Build’s also the place to get deep technical dives into the great things we’re doing today to help developers build the next generation of intelligent apps and services. We’ve been “building” toward this for a while — for instance, Tuesday, we announced updates to our Cognitive Services that help developers build apps that understand people and the world around us.”

Build 2017 Details

Though Microsoft is yet to share everything happening at Build 2017, it has given some indications. Developers will gain valuable insight into what’s next, including:

  • “Mixed-reality experiences
  • Cutting edge, intelligent cloud apps
  • Simplified end-to-end dev ops experiences
  • Mobile experiences for nearly any device
  • Apps that make your customers more productive
  • AI-powered apps we have yet to imagine”

As usual, the event will feature keynotes, technical sessions, hackathons and more. The event will also cover Azure Managed Disks and VM scale sets, Microsoft Teams, and Visual Studio 2017.

Tickets went on sale at 9 am PST, so you’ll want to grab one from the build website as quickly as possible. Spaces are limited, and they usually sell out quick. You can find more details about Build 2017 on the Microsoft blog.
