As announced previously, Build 2018 will be coming on May 7, but participants still don’t have all the details. Though registration is open, we’ve yet to hear all the information about timing and content.
Thankfully, you won’t have to wait for much longer. The MyBuild website now contains a note telling users to check back on the week of April 23. We should see more exact timings, as well as more sessions.
What We Know So Far
That said, we have a rough idea of major events thanks to the agenda released already. There will be discussions, demos, and sessions from Microsoft experts, and likely a look at Windows 10’s upcoming features.
The first day will contain a keynote by CEO Satya Nadella, as well as presentations and training labs. The following two days won’t feature Nadella but will have similar sessions and events.
Microsoft also takes the time to announce developer-focused tools. Last year saw the Mac debut of Visual Studio, Azure Cloud Shell, and more. Nadella’s speech focused o the important milestone of 500 million users, and it’s possible we’ll get an update on the OS’ progress this year too.
There will also be sessions about datacenter design, DevOps, Azure Cosmos DB migration, containers, web apps, SQL Database, Fluent Design, and more. Microsoft experts will on-hand for workshops about VS debugging, ASP.NET Core 2.1, UWP apps, AI-license plate recognition, and more.
In total, there will be over 350+ sessions, as well as social events for vital networking. As usual, it will be hosted in Microsoft’s home of Seattle, in the Washington State Convention Center.
