Microsoft has announced the dates for its fourth annual Connect(); developer conference, revealing that it will take place from November 15-17. The event will be held in New York and will feature more than 75 sessions intended to help developers learn to build apps that "will have a profound impact on the world," Microsoft says.
Executive Vice President Scott Guthrie, alongside leading industry innovators, will share what's next for developers across a broad range of Microsoft and open source technologies.
While the event itself will run for three days in New York, those at home will be able to tune in to a livestream of the keynote. We likely won't see the types of major announcements that Microsoft typically saves for Build, its other developer-focused event. Still, the event is likely to provide some valuable insight for developers. In the meantime, you can learn more about the event and save the date at the Connect(); website.
