From Microsoft's Steve Guggenheimer (opens in new tab):

This year's Build will highlight the latest tools and technologies and how they can help today's developers be their most creative and productive. Build is filled with strong technical sessions as well as opportunities to meet and learn from others in the industry. Based on your feedback year over year, we make sure the schedule is filled with solid content and as usual we strive to deliver some fun surprises along the way.

Build 2016 will take place from March 30 to April 1 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California. It's a chance for Microsoft to brief developers on the state of the company and the Windows platform. Build will feature many technical sessions focused on different Windows technologies and helping developers create the best Windows apps possible.

  • There is an error in the third line. Regirsration.
  • Wonder I can buy with $2000.

  • Already got a demo unit
  • At the very least, the Surface 4! ;)

  • It would be very cool to get a chance to mess with Holo Lens. At last year's event, they had a few hundred demo units at the conference, but getting play time required some luck in getting an invite to the sessions they had. I'm looking forward to seeing what plans they have in store for the Windows Mobile 10 platform too. Yes, the platform's marketshare is very slim (and dwindling sadly) but WM10 is still good in my books. As for giveaways, here's my picks (in order of liklihood): An OEM's premium laptop (i.e. HP Spectre, Dell XPS) Last year they dished out HP's awesome looking HP Spectre 360. They would likely work with OEM's again to keep the peace. Windows Mobile 10 Device (Lumia 950) Holo Lens Development Unit I'm dreaming on this one :p.
  • Wow, so early this year!
