Microsoft's Build Conference Sold Out

I mentioned Microsoft's Build Windows conference in previous blog posts. In that post I mentioned what we knew at that time about the Windows Build conference. Beyond a date and high-level comments on covering Windows 8 development, not a lot has been said. Regardless, the conference is now listed as sold out!

If you want to attend the conference, you'll have to watch online and see what gets streamed if you haven't already registered. The tickets for the show in Los Angeles have been sold out and now Microsoft makes final preparations for what will be presented. Of course, we still know very little about the details of what will be presented; however, I believe it is safe to say that expectations are high for what will be covered about Windows 8 and the future of development in the Microsoft space.

It does sound impressive that the show is sold out. Last year's Microsoft Professional Developers Conference (PDC) also sold out. Its attendance was limited. I had heard it was around 1,000 due to being on the Microsoft campus. The Build conference is in LA, so there should be less of a need to limit attendance. Regardless, it is full.

How many people will attend a sold out Build conference?

That is simply not being publicly stated right now. While I've asked the public relation folks associated to the show, the response has been pretty much, "no comment". Bottom line, it could be 10 people or it could be 10,000. My guess would put it somewhere between those two numbers, but right now, no one is talking. Regardless, it seems that the show will be one of the hottest tickets come mid-September!

Are you going?
