Microsoft Reopening Build Registration on May 15
Microsoft announced today that it would offer a limited amount of extra tickets for its Build developer conference, which will take place in San Francisco at the Moscone Center from June 26-28. The additional tickets will go on sale Wednesday, May 15, at 9 a.m. PDT.
Build tickets first went on sale the morning of April 2, and a Microsoft tweet confirmed that the conference was officially sold out by the morning of April 13.
As Visual Studio Magazine Editor in Chief Keith Ward noted in an April blog post, Build 2012 sold out in about an hour, partly due to the small size of the event venue at Microsoft headquarters in Redmond, Wash. The 2013 venue, the Moscone Center, is much larger than the 2012 location. Ward interviewed Microsoft's Steven Guggenheimer about the 2013 event, at which time Guggenheimer said Microsoft was "excited to have a space where more people could join us."
