Microsoft building HUGE tent on their campus for BUILD 2012

I’m looking forward to covering the BUILD conference this year.

I’ll be in Redmond next week to bring you all the details live (from the press room LOL).

Anyho, this is an interesting story. is reporing that Microsoft is in the middle of putting up a massive tent on its campus that’s designed to hold 2,000 people.

Apparently, the thing is so huge that when it’s done, it will be one of the largest in North America.

It will be three stories high and cover an area equal to about 12 NBA basketball courts.

Speaking about the gigantic tent, Tim O’Brien, the general manager of Microsoft’s Developer & Platform Evangelism says that for BUILD 2012, “We’re a Seattle company, and we’re proud of the work we do here, and the campus experience is something that we want to show off to Build attendees.”
