Microsoft announced the official dates of its annual Build developer conference. Where it discusses what all will the company bring across to its various products and platforms this year. The conference will be held between 6th May and 8th May in Seattle, USA. Microsoft’s conference is in the same week and it overlaps with Google’s I/O event which is from 7th May to 9th May.
The registration for this event will open on 27th February for anyone planning to attend the conference. In this meet many of the key personnel from Microsoft including the CEO Satya Nadella and the lead of Windows experience team, Joe Belfiore will be present. And the people attending this event might hear from them. Many of Microsoft’s services and products will be discussed which include Azure, HoloLens, Cortana and much more.
Ahead of the conference some rumors have been flying on the web that Microsoft might introduce the Windows Core OS at the Build conference 2019. And this OS will be a major revamp of Windows 10. It is being said that this new OS will bring life to the operating system with a more modular and streamlined user interface set for various factors including the folding PC. There is another possibility that Windows will speak more about their Windows Lite version, which is a new version of Windows which only runs Progressive Web apps to target better Chrome OS. It is not a new program as it was already being developed by Microsoft internally.
In last year’s Build developer conference, we saw the announcement of many new in initiatives of Microsoft. Some of the Build 2018 initiatives included how Cortana could work with Amazon’s Alexa to be more useful. New Windows Mixed Reality headsets, Ubuntu and iTunes coming on Microsoft Store also were some of the big updates.
As of right now not much is known about what the company will unveil or launch at the Build 2019, but their tagline teases us what it will be about.
“Join us in Seattle for Microsoft’s premier event for developers. Come and experience the latest developer tools and technologies. Imagine new ways to create software by getting industry insights into the future of software development. Connect with your community to understand new development trends and innovative ways to code,” stated on a webpage for Build 2019.
