Join us for Microsoft Build Coverage Live from Seattle

Tomorrow Microsoft begins their three day developer focused event Build 2017 at the Washington State Convention Center in downtown Seattle and I am here onsite to bring you all the news and announcements.

The event begins on 10 May with a Day One keynote that is expected to be led by Scott Guthrie, the companies Executive VP for Cloud and Enterprise, and that will be full of announcements relating to their cloud services which could include Artificial Intelligence, data, system management, and other developer related services.

On Day Two, May 11th, a second keynote will start the day and this one usually covers Windows related enhancements that will be of interest to developers such as UWP, web apps, bots, and a new design language for Windows.

The reason I can come up with these educated guesses is that last week Microsoft released the Build 2017 apps for Windows 10 PCs, Mobile, iOS, and Android devices and each of them are populated with the entire session catalog for all three days. That in turn gives us some pretty good insight to what they will be focused on this week.

The keynotes can be streamed live at and many of the side sessions will also be broadcast on Channel 9 throughout each day alongside of interviews with key presenters to talk about the various announcements.

Eventually most of the Build 2017 content will be available on-demand for your viewing.

The Day One keynote begins at 8:00 AM Pacific Time (check for your local time zone) and the Day Two keynote will begin at 8:30 AM Pacific (check your local time zone).

Of course, I will be in each keynote and several of the key side sessions to bring you information on a continual basis so be sure to follow me on Twitter and here on DevPro Connections, IT Pro: Windows, and SuperSite: Windows for all of the sights, sounds, and key information throughout the event.


But, wait...there's probably more so be sure to follow me on Twitter and Google+.
