It’s official:  BUILD 2012 is confirmed. 

When?  Tuesday October 30 – Friday November 2.  This is the week following the Windows 8 ship date (General Availability) on Friday October 26.

Where?  BUILD will be held on Microsoft’s campus in Redmond, Washington.  It is pretty cool to attend an event right on the campus…they have done this with big conferences a few times in the past, and it’s a great atmosphere.  You are at the center of it all, where the magic happens, and you have direct access to hear from the engineers directly responsible for our products.

In addition to Windows 8, we’ll be sharing exciting info across our platform – Windows Azure, Windows Phone 8, Windows Server 2012, and Visual Studio 2012. 

Registration for BUILD 2012 will go live at 8am Pacific Time on 8/8 at http://www.buildwindows.com.  It will likely sell out quickly, so mark your calendars and register quickly so you don’t miss this opportunity!
