What to Expect at the Build Conference

What to Expect at the Build Conference

Beginning September 13, Microsoft will hold its Build Conference for developers, and the company has a lot of explaining to do for programmers who are wondering which development tools will be supported by the next version of Windows. Specifically, because Microsoft has hinted that HTML5 and JavaScript will be a big part of Windows 8, developers want to know about any related development tools that Microsoft may have planned. They also want to know what this new shift to HTML5 means for Silverlight and how they will go about building apps that work with both the traditional Windows interface and the new “modern” touchscreen interface.

Other topics Microsoft is likely to address at the conference include changes to Visual Studio, the next version of C++, an updated version of LightSwitch, the .NET framework and cloud development tools.
