Microsoft brings annual BUILD developer conference to Seattle this coming May

Microsoft is bringing its annual BUILD developer conference to Seattle this coming May, a new location for the conference, which in the past has been typically held in San Francisco in April.

The new location and date for the event is interesting, especially given the fact that BUILD 2017 will be held at least a couple months after the Windows 10 Creator Update is released. Because of this, we're assuming a lot of the focus will be on Redstone 3 changes and features that developers are going to want to take advantage of, perhaps our first official look at Project NEON will happen in May too.

Microsoft hasn't given any more specific info outside of May 10th-12-th in Seattle. Regardless, Windows Central will be there covering the event as usual. It's an exciting time to be a Microsoft fan, and we can't wait to see what Microsoft has planned for BUILD 2017.
