Build 2016 dates announced

Microsoft's Steven Guggenheimer, the companies Chief Evangelist for Developer Experience, confirmed on Twitter today that Build will return to San Francisco in 2016.

Build covers all of Microsoft's platforms from a developer perspective so you can fully expect to hear plenty about Windows 10 and the expected Redstone update that is due next year plus their cloud offerings like Azure and Office 365.

The event is usually kicked off with keynote presentations from Satya Nadella, Microsoft's CEO, along with executive leadership from around the company.

Last year one very popular extension of the actual Build conference in San Francisco was the Build Tour. This was a series of shorter events that were hosted by Microsoft around the world to bring Microsoft employees in touch with developers whom use their technologies. This allowed developers, who might not have been able to attend Build in person, to get training, hands on experiences and demos of various Microsoft software and programs.

It was wildly popular and considered a huge success but there is no word today if that will happen as well in 2016.

Currently you can head over to the Build 2016 website and sign up for their mailing list that should bring further details about registration and pricing in the near future.
