Microsoft is set to hold its Build 2014 Developer Conference at the Moscone Center in San Francisco from April 2nd to April 4th, and registration for the event opens tomorrow, January 14th. It has also been rumored that we will see the official release of the first update to Windows 8.1, dubbed the Spring 2014 update or Update 1, during the event.
"The momentum just keeps building and that is why I’m so excited to announce our next developer conference, Build 2014, which will take place April 2 to April 4 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Save the date and mark your calendar for registration, which opens at 9 a.m. PT on Jan. 14 at www.buildwindows.com," Microsoft stated in an official blog post back in December.
The event runs for $2095 and registration opens at 9AM PST at buildwindows.com. While the price may be a bit steep for some, keep in mind that the event sold out in just one day last year. This resulted in Microsoft re-opening registration and adding more seats.
Microsoft annual BUILD conference is set to happen in April of this year, which is a lot earlier than usual. It's highly likely that Windows 8.1 Update 1 will be shown and maybe even released around this time, introducing new API's and features for both developers and consumers.
