Microsoft Build was the coming out party for Windows 8 development. While there I took a few pictures with my phone. Here are just a few of them I thought worth sharing. Yes, they are primarly slide presentations, but I figured that information was more interesting than seeing people!
While some might question it, in general, developers are good at heart. In fact, the developer community can be extremely caring. The growth of Give Camps over the last few years is just one indication of the way developers are giving back to their communities.
Yes, it is true. The death of Silverlight and Flash have been predicted. The culprit? HTML5.
There is likely to be a ton of articles written in the last 24 hours on Windows 8 and the announcements at the Build conference. There is a lot being presented. In fact, I've started working on a couple of articles and blog posts that will be posted in the near future. I thought I'd simply bullet list a number of comments, words, and tidbits that came up in presentations and conversations at Microsoft's Build conference. These are not intended to be comprehensive coverage, but rather simply talking points for what is coming from Microsoft. There is no order to these, I'm simply presenting information. This blog is posted to a couple of forums (VBForums and Codeguru/forums), so I'm sure some of the following will drive a few conversations.
It is too early to state whether the Microsoft Build Conference was worth the wait. The conference keynote starts in about an hour and a half. Expectations are high that there will be industry changing announcements. Just the release of information on Windows 8 should be enough to have an impact, but there is a curiosity to see what else Microsoft has to say.
