Developers: Dive into the Creators Update with Microsoft on February 8

It looks like developers will get a chance to dive into what's new in the Creators Update directly with Microsoft pretty soon. Microsoft will host a dedicated Windows Developer Day (opens in new tab) livestream on February 8 (via Neowin) centered on helping developers understand all of the new tools and features coming in the Creators Update.

Should you tune in to the livestream, you'll get to see Windows Developer Platform lead Kevin Gallo and the Windows engineering team walk you through a number of aspects of the update. From Microsoft:

  • See what's new with Windows developer tooling: UWP tooling, BASH, Developer mode, and more.
  • Learn about the latest XAML advancements and how UWP helps you build Windows apps that are more personal and productive.
  • Hear the developer story behind the recent announcements of Cortana skills and the new Windows mixed-reality headsets.
  • We'll close out the event with a live Q&A panel to answer your burning questions.

Interested? If so, you can RSVP for the event on Microsoft's developer site now. You'll probably want to set aside a decent chunk of time on February 8 for the event, but there's no detailed agenda available yet, so it's not clear exactly what time things will kick off.

  • Just accommodate a date right after the event so you can watch the stream while she chose her outfit, and have her makeup and hair done did.
