Microsoft opens registration for its Build 2016 developer conference [Update: Sold Out]

Update:: Build 2016, as expected, quickly sold out within a few minutes, but you can still get on the wait list just in case some spaces open up. Microsoft also points out the keynotes and some Build 2016 sessions will be streamed live for folks that cannot attend.

Original Story: As it promised last week, Microsoft has begun accepting registrations for its Build 2016 developer conference. The event will be held this year from March 30 to April 1, about a month earlier than 2015's Build conference. As in the past few years, the event will be held at Moscone Center in San Francisco, California.

The cost for developers to get their ticket is $2,195 this year, which is a $100 increase over last year's cost of entry, but we still expect it to sell out fast. Microsoft usually offers a lower price for a limited number of qualified students, and is doing so again this year for the price of $995.

Microsoft usually makes a number of major announcements during Build 2016, and we plan to be there to offer first-hand reports on what the company will be revealing during the conference.
