Depending on where you are, today may be the 14th of January. It’s the day that Microsoft is going to be opening up registration for Build 2014 that takes place April 2-4 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Set your alarm and get your bank account ready if you’re hoping to go.
Build is Microsoft’s developer conference. It started in 2011 as a place for developers to get hands-on with Windows 8, but has grown to include most of Microsoft’s products and services.
Build 2014 is going to very, very big for Windows Phone. We’re expecting this venue to be where Microsoft finally takes the wraps off of Windows Phone 8.1. We’ll see things like a notification center, voice assistant, and much more in the next version of Windows Phone. Overlap with Windows 8 will also occur with APIs. There will also be an update for both the Xbox One and Windows 8.1 out or coming out around there, so if you’re a developer you’ll want to be on hand for all the new info. Windows 9, also known as Threshold, should be outlined by Microsoft at Build 2014.
Registration opens at 9am PST on Jan 14. You’ll need $2095 to sign up. You'll need to be quick, the last few events sold out within the hour. Here's the time localized for your region.
Register soon: Build Windows
Thanks for the reminders everyone!
