Microsoft's Build 2018 conference is coming to Seattle on May 7

Microsoft has announced that its Build developer conference for 2018 will run from May 7-9. What's more, the event will return to Seattle for the second year in a row. Prior to 2017's conference, Build was typically held in San Francisco.

Last year's conference came not long after the Windows 10 Creators Update was released, and the event focused on features we'd eventually see in the Fall Creators Update. I'd expect this year's conference to place focus on offering an early look at what Microsoft is cooking up for Redstone 5 this fall.

Outside of the given dates, Microsoft hasn't given any other specifics. It'll be interesting to see what's coming down the pike, and as usual, Windows Central will be covering the event from the ground from May 7-9. If you're interested in attending, registration will open on February 15 at Microsoft's Build 2018 website.
