Microsoft Details Event Line Up For 2017, Build Heads To Seattle

Microsoft Backs Down From Skylake Support Limits

As 2016 comes to an end, Microsoft is already looking forward to 2017 and the company will be making a few changes to its events. Everything from Build to Ignite has been refined and the company is sharing the dates for all of these events.

Build, the company’s annual developer conference that it organizes each Spring, is headed to Seattle; the past couple of years it has been located in San Francisco. The event will run from May 10-12 but the company is not ready to announce yet when registration will open.

During the summer, the company will be hosting its Inspire conference in Washington D.C from July 9-13. This conference, known to most as Worldwide Partner Conference, has been rebranded and registration for this event is open today.

What is “Inside Microsoft Teams”?

“Inside Microsoft Teams” is a webcast series, now in Season 4 for IT pros hosted by Microsoft Product Manager, Stephen Rose. Stephen & his guests comprised of customers, partners, and real-world experts share best practices of planning, deploying, adopting, managing, and securing Teams. You can watch any episode at your convenience, find resources, blogs, reviews of accessories certified for Teams, bonus clips, and information regarding upcoming live broadcasts. Our next episode, “Polaris Inc., and Microsoft Teams- Reinventing how we work and play” will be airing on Oct. 28th from 10-11am PST.

Finally, the company’s Envision conference for business leaders is being combined with Ignite. This event will take place Sept. 25-29 and will be hosted in Orlando.

The most notable change here is the location for Build. Each year at the event, the conference sold out quickly and last year Microsoft promised to make the 2017 event open to more attendees. This is not the first time the company has hosted the developer conference on its campus and seeing as they know have more control over the venue, expect there be more room for additional attendees.
