Microsoft announces BUILD 2013, confirms “Blue” update details
Microsoft has today announced that BUILD 2013, their annual developer conference that has been taking place since the introduction of Windows 8 back in 2011, will be taking place this year at the Moscone Center in San Francisco between the days of June 26th and June 28th. Registration will open on April 2nd at 9am PST and tickets are known to go fast, so be sure to set your alarms.
Perhaps more excitingly, Microsoft has confirmed for the very first time some of the finer details of their upcoming wave of “Blue” updates, which Windows Blue is (obviously) a significant part of. In a post made by Corporate Vice President of Corporate Communications at Microsoft Frank Shaw, Microsoft confirmed that “Blue” is an initiative led by product leaders of various groups at Microsoft to coordinate functionality between different products at Microsoft.
Most notably, Shaw confirmed that Blue is part of a “new normal” at Microsoft – namely, Microsoft has switched to a continuous development cycle to get new devices, apps, and services to their customers without the need to wait for major releases, something we’ve seen evidence of recently. Haverzine
