BUILD 2014 is just hours away. A whole bunch of hours away, you may say, but the most anticipated Microsoft event of the year is ready to get underway April 2, which just makes it a day and then some.
And Microsoft has posted up the sessions for the 2014 edition of its BUILD conference earlier today.
You can take a look at the full schedule here, with all the sessions. Some early pointers are also up for grabs if you dig through the details. Pointers like the fact that the Windows Phone 8.1 announcement is incoming, and more fun stuff like this.
As the company puts it:
“The new release of Windows Phone dramatically expands the ways in which developers can build applications and games, by adding several new programming models.”
New release is as good a giveaway as any, in this day and age!
Need some more nuggets? Well one session talks about changes to sideloading and sideloaded apps in Windows 8.1 — this could be really interesting. Are we finally getting the ability to sideload Metro applications in the operating system beside the Windows Store? Sign me up!
The company also talks about Windows and Windows Phone getting a converged Live Tiles platform and development model. And another one hints at Cortana, something about integrating apps into the Windows Phone Speech Experience. This one is not to be missed if you are an app developer.
Take a look at the complete list of sessions here, and stay tuned for oodles and oodles of information as we head into the flagship Microsoft event later this week.
