Microsoft just confirmed that this year's Build developer conference is set to happen in May, and the event will return to its usual venue in Seattle, Washington.
The conference is happening in the same month as Google's I/O developer conference in Mountain View, California, also the same place where the said event is held annually.
What To Expect
Being Microsoft's main event that's focused on developers, the Build conference is the venue where updates on the company's software and other products such as Windows and Office are usually announced.
This year, it's expected that the company will talk about the latest in the AI world, including updates on its very own Cortana. Rumors even say that the company could be gearing up to unveil the Windows Lite OS — a Chrome OS competitor — during the event, and announcements about the Azure cloud and other developer tools are also expected.
The company is currently working on a Windows 10 update and plans to release it later this year. As such, it's also possible that Microsoft could underline some changes, new features, and UI improvements in this update during the Build developer's conference.
Microsoft's Build developer 2019 will take place on May 6 until May 8 at the Washington Convention Center in Seattle. Registration for the event opens on Feb. 27. The Build 2019 website is now live, so make sure to check that out as the event draws nearer.
As of the moment, no session list has been provided, but Build's FAQ page indicates that it'll be released in late February.
Microsoft's Build developer conference kicks off one day before Google's I/O, which is scheduled to start on May 7. I/O is also focused on developers, so looks like they're going to have a field day once these events start.
