Microsoft Build 2017 - Links & Resources

Microsoft Build (often stylized as //build/) is an annual conference held by Microsoft, aimed at software engineers and web developers using Windows, Windows Phone, Microsoft Azure and other Microsoft technologies. This year, Microsoft has completed this conference on May 10-12, 2017. The company had so many exciting announcements this year right from Windows 10 Fall Creators update – Redstone3, VS2017 for Mac, Azure mobile apps to hardware and technologies on virtual-mix reality.

  1. Microsoft Build 2017 - Day 1 Highlights
