The Edge Web Summit offers an opportunity for developers to attend sessions with, and bend the ears of, the engineers behind Microsoft Edge. Microsoft explains:
On top of the technical sessions, Microsoft says that engineers will be on hand to help developers find and squash bugs, as well as improve the efficiency of their code.

Last year they did it in SF and had a good turn out (including developers from the competing browsers, who seemed very friendly with the Edge devs). Having this event in Seattle means all of those web developers in silicon valley won't even consider attending it and unlike Build this event needs to target web developers and not the enterprise developers who already support the Microsoft stack anyway. It's really a shame that when Microsoft finally has something to offer these developers (Azure, VSCode, TypeScript, a browser that supports standards better, etc.) they've pulled a disappearing act and are barely visible in the area where most websites are built.
LOL, no one cares !
MS no one cares with this event. Who would even bother? MS should have spent the effort in W10M instead.
u mean win10.arm instead?
What a pile of rubbish. Clearly, you don't understand the portability aspect of Progressive Web Apps. It's becoming the UWP of the web, and will create much more leverage than all of those UWP offerings. Think about it: apps that run on Android and Windows OOTB, but not on iOS.
The single thing Microsoft has to make clear is: IE8+9 will get scrapped, forget about browser detection, use feature detection.
