Microsoft sets the date for Build 2016
The end of 2015 is within sight, and while we’ve still got four weeks to go until 2016, we’re already gearing up to be ready for all the mobile tech advancements coming our way in the new year. Right now that means an eye on what’s brewing for CES 2016 in early January, but we’ve got a heck of a lot to look forward to past that. Beyond CES, and beyond MWC, we’ve got some platform-centric events to anticipate: stuff like Google I/O and Apple’s WWDC. First on the agenda, though, is Microsoft’s Build conference, and today the company shares the dates for its 2016 iteration.
This year, Build fell in mid-spring, right as April gave way to May. During the course of the event, we learned a lot about Microsoft’s plans for easy Windows 10 cross-platform app porting (even if that effort hasn’t exactly gone as planned), saw the Spartan browser pick up its official Edge name, got a fresh look at HoloLens, and got our first taste for how Continuum could turn our smartphones into full-on portable computers.
Next year’s Build will come a little bit earlier, running from March 30 through April 1.
There’s no guarantee that Build 2016 will be equally as fruitful as this last time around, but we’re hugely optimistic. Beyond hearing about the future of Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile, we might even hear a little about upcoming hardware – and who wouldn’t appreciate another look at what developers are able to come up with for HoloLens?
