Build 2014 Dates Announced

Next year's developer show is slated for April 2-4.

Microsoft is going back to San Francisco for its 2014 Build Conference. It will be held in the same venue as the 2013 show, San Francisco's Moscone Center, from April 2-4.

Registration for the show, Microsoft's main developer-focused conference, will open at 9 a.m. PT on Jan. 14, according to a blog post from Steve Guggenheimer, Microsoft's Corporate Vice President and Chief Evangelist, Developer & Platform Evangelism.

More than 6,000 developers attended the 2013 show, according to Microsoft. "At this year's event, we'll talk about what's next for Windows, Windows Phone, Windows Azure, Windows Server, Visual Studio and much more," Guggenheimer blogged. What new product announcements could be made is an open question, but it appears unlikely that many huge unveilings will take place, given the deluge of new products released this year. They include Visual Studio 2013, Windows 8.1, Xbox One and SQL Server 2014, which is at the Community Technology Preview 2 (CTP2) stage right now.

The Build conference resulted from the merging of Microsoft's Professional Developer Conference (PDC) and MIX, its Web development conference, in 2011. The news about dates and the location of the 2013 Build show was first announced at 1105 Media's Visual Studio Live! developer conference in March.
