Update for Microsoft Live Build Event 2014
Just like last year, Microsoft has decided to live stream its Build 2014 developer conference that will take place, as usual, in The Moscone Center, San Francisco, from from April 2 to April 4. The links to watch the event live are the same for this year, as well, so just scroll at the end of the article to see which they are. We’ve already seen Satya Nadella announce Microsoft Office for iPad at his first press briefing, so it will be interesting to see what are the announcements at the 2014 Build event.
What most of us are awaiting is Windows Phone 8.1, as it has been already heavily leaked. But, besides this, we also hope that Microsoft will also release the Spring Update to Windows 8.1, download links to which have leaked multiple times in the past. So, stay tuned and let’s see what Redmond has in store for us!
For those that don’t know Build, this is the major event that Microsoft is celebrating for and with Developers Worldwide, an event where you can find out what’s new in Windows, Windows Phone, Azure, and other technologies. An event plenty of 100, 200, 300 and 400 level sessions where you can develop your skills and improve as a developer. Developers can create new experiences to reach hundreds of millions of devices on people’s desks, in their pockets and in their living rooms. Customers are only a click away. Join us at Build for an unprecedented learning opportunity for developers building on the Microsoft platform.
We are just hours away from the start of Microsoft’s annual Build event, where the company is expected to officially unveil Windows 8.1, which was previously known as Windows Blue. Many folks that are not at the Moscone Center in San Francisco where the event is held will most likely want to watch the Build 2014 event live. We have scouted the web and will provide below links to the official video feed, as well as websites that will be live-blogging from there with their own impressions.
As always, this year’s Build event will be focused on bringing more tools to Windows developers, but it will also be closely watched by users all over the world, because it will bring the Windows 8.1 update, which comes to make some important changes to Windows 8.
Microsoft will also talk about Windows Phone, Azure, Internet Explorer, Office 365, Xbox and Visual Studio. By the way, if you still want to attend the Build event on your own, most likely, if you’re living in San Francisco, you should know that there still are some tickets left – the full price is $2,095.00 and the academic price is $995.00, but it has limited availability.
