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.

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...

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...
