Microsoft BUILD/Windows Conference Announced

Back in April, Microsoft announced that it would hold in September a developer-focused conference in Anaheim, California. Widely assumed to be another in the series of Professional Developers Conferences (PDC), Microsoft has now released details about the event, which it has branded as a new conference called BUILD/Windows.

The announcement came at the AllThingsD conference, where Steven Sinofsky, Microsoft president of Windows and Windows Live, demoed the Windows 8 operating system. According to a report from eWeek, BUILD/Windows will cast a broad net, focusing on both hardware and software, as well as on cloud, Web and mobile development.

The conference will take place at the Anaheim Convention Center and is scheduled for September 13-16, with pre-conference sessions on Monday, September 12. Registration for the BUILD/Windows conference opened on June 1.
