Liveblog starts in:
SEATTLE—In a welcome break from tradition, Microsoft is holding its annual developer conference, Build, in Seattle this year. We’re live on the scene to enjoy America’s best weather and learn all about Microsoft’s plans for its developer platform. The day 1 keynote was all about Azure and AI; for day 2, we’re expecting to hear a lot more from the Windows and Devices Group.
The day 2 keynote kicks off at 8:30am PDT on Thursday (click here for your local time), May 11, and we’ll be liveblogging it. With Windows 10’s next update, codenamed Redstone 3, less than six months away, we’re expecting to at last see the official unveiling of Neon, the revised and refreshed Windows look and feel.
We didn’t hear much about Xamarin on day 1, either, so we’d expect to hear more from that team and its continuing work to make Windows the best operating system for multiplatform mobile development.
