Build Tour Toronto – June 12, 2015

Build Tour Toronto

JUNE 06, 2015 UPDATE: A Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page has been added to the toronto.build15.com site. The page states that “Breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack and beverages are provided to all attendees throughout the event.” Conference presentations will be also be available after the event through Channel 9 at channel9.msdn.com/Events/Build As well, a FREE Azure Pass is also being offered to all attendees so they can get up and running with Azure in minutes. The Azure Pass gives you a new account with a $100 credit. More information can be found at toronto.build15.com/azurepass.

Microsoft recently held two highly successful conferences for developers and IT professionals called Build 2015 and Microsoft Ignite. Both events were attended by thousands of people and during each Microsoft announced exciting new advances for many of its products including Windows 10, Microsoft Azure, and Office 365.

One of the best things that Microsoft does at these events is that they film and then share all of the presentations through their video learning site Channel 9. Many of the videos are available 24-48 hours after each session concludes and viewers can stream or download them in different file qualities. As well, most include the PowerPoint files as well. Click these links to find all the session videos for Build and Ignite.

Microsoft has taken a further step this year by announcing a 26-stop world Build Tour to bring the Build 2015 experience to those who could not attend in person. Each event will showcase highlights from //build/ and include a deep dive for developers into the Windows 10 platform. There will also be coding sessions and demos across multiple devices. Each location will have Partner showcases and Q & A sessions with Microsoft engineers. The best part is that it is FREE!

The only Canadian stop on the tour will be //build/Toronto on June 12, 2015 at the Design Exchange in downtown Toronto. Joe Stegman, Group Program Manager for Microsoft’s XAML User Interface (UI) team, will be delivering the day’s keynote address. There will also be sessions by other Microsoft staffers including:

  • Jeff Burtoft, Senior Program Manager for Developer Experience at Microsoft.
  • Nikola Metuleva, a Program Manager in the Engineering Engagement and Evangelism (EEE) group.
  • Vlad Kolesnikov, a Senior Program Manager in Microsoft Developer Experience group.

To find more information on the event or to register, visit //build/Toronto.
