Microsoft officially announces Build 2019 for May 6-8 in Seattle

It’s official, Microsoft’s Build developer conference will come back to the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle on May 6-8. This a day earlier than the May 7-9 dates that leaked a month ago, and Microsoft may well have changed the date to get the jump on Google I/O, which will kick off on May 7.

As usual, Build 2019 will be the opportunity for Microsoft to talk about its latest developer tools and technologies, and that will include lots of cloud, AI and software news. We should learn more about new features coming to Windows 10, but we hope Microsoft will also finally talk about Windows Core OS, the modular version of Windows that it’s developing for new form factors. We’ve already seen Windows Core OS run on the new Surface Hub that will be released later this year, and it’s also expected to power the next-gen HoloLens as well as the foldable dual-screen devices that Microsoft has been working on for quite some time.

Registrations for Build 2019 will be open on February 27, and we’ll let you when the full planning is up. In the meantime, you can subscribe on this page to get email updates about Build 2019.
