Last year’s Microsoft Build is returning to California for its 2016 Build conference, according to a tweet from Steven Guggenheimer, Microsoft’s chief evangelist of Developer Experience.
Build is set to go down between March 30th and April 1st in San Francisco and while we don’t have specific details yet, as always, the company is expected to make announcements regarding “the future of Microsoft and technology.”

Microsoft’s Build conferences typically focus on showing off the future of Windows. It’s expected that attendees will get a glimpse at Windows 10’s upcoming update, currently codenamed Redstone. The update is reportedly set to be released as a preview build at some point in March. However, in the past Microsoft has also discussed HoloLens at Build, so it’s possible we’ll receive more information about the company’s innovative but often criticized – because of its small view field – augmented reality headset.
It’s still unclear what other topics Microsoft plans to discuss at build but it’s likely that we’ll get additional information about the company’s plans to allow developers to easily port iOS apps to Windows 10 Mobile. We could also learn additional information about Microsoft’s often discussed universal app strategy that has Windows 10 apps running across the Xbox One, Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 10.
