My Impressions from Build 2015

Thursday, May 7, 2015

Last week I attended Microsoft's Build conference at San-Francisco along with my colleagues. Build is Microsoft's prime developer conference, and as such it is packed with technical content relating to software development on top of Microsoft's various platforms - from Band, to Xbox, to PC to Azure. In this post I'll try to summarize my key observations and feelings following my attendance. The New Microsoft This started already at the previous Build last year. Following Steven Sinofsky's departure and the appointment of Satya Nadella as CEO, Microsoft has started being a more open company oriented towards its consumers and developers. One of...

BUILD 2012 – Day 4

Tuesday, November 6, 2012

The BUILD party has passed, and the final day of BUILD has unfortunately arrived. This day had some interesting sessions which I’ll summarize in this post. Remember – all BUILD sessions are available for free on MSDN Channel 9. BUILD Session – Deep Dive Into the Kernel of .NET on Windows Phone 8 Unfortunately, the session with this promising name ended up not providing the deep-dive that some of us expected, but I did pick up an interesting pointer. As it turns out, when you deploy a .NET application to Windows Phone 8, the application does...

The BUILD conference’s third day was devoted fully to breakout conferences, with the BUILD party at the end of the day (and Microsoft has shown before that they know to throw a party).

Thursday, November 1, 2012

Day number two of BUILD has passed on by with some great content. In this post I’ll highlight some issues I encountered today at some of the professional sessions, which were all related to Windows Azure. You should note that all BUILD sessions are available for free on Channel 9. BUILD Keynote – Windows 8 & Cloud-Connected Apps Today’s keynotes focused on Windows Azure and the various application types it can support, including device centric applications, web centric applications and cloud-scale applications. Many of the demonstrations rehashed some of the last months’ announcements but nonetheless it...

BUILD 2012 – Day 1 (Part II)

In a previous post, I highlighted BUILD’s first day keynote main topics, and on this post I would like to focus on my highlights from the professional sessions of the day. By the way – all BUILD sessions are available for free on Channel 9. BUILD Session - Bringing Existing C++ Code to Windows Store Apps Ever since the previous BUILD last year, along with the completion of C++ 11, C++ is having a kind of renaissance and is making a comeback to the center of the development stage. While Windows Store application developers have a...

BUILD 2012 – Day 1 (Part I)

BUILD has finally begun on Tuesday, after a long wait. CodeValue is here at BUILD in full strength with 10 experts at the conference itself, and one more disappointed expert who unfortunately got stuck at home due to hurricane Sandy (Pavel, we’re with you at heart). By the way, if you missed it I am also publishing short updates on my twitter account @eranstiller. BUILD Keynote – Steve Ballmer & Friends The day began with Steve Ballmer’s. Steve has a lot of energies on stage (“Developers, Developers, Developers” anyone?), and it was very exhilarating...
