In case you’ve been hiding under a rock over the past 2 years, Windows 8 is on the way. There’s been no end of speculation as we get closer to the feature announcements and revelations at the Build Windows Conference in Anaheim (LA), USA, next week. The hype has truly started, and the giddiness by geeks (like me) has been fuelled by the blog posts giving us little snippets of information.
Next week is when we Windows nerds go into overdrive. Build Windows will be the venue when all sorts of Windows 8 information will be officially revealed to the public. It’s primarily aimed at developers (replacing PDC) and hardware vendors, but it will also be the site of a bunch of reveals for us IT Pros. The agenda is secret, and only a few of the speakers are publicly known.
I am lucky – I am going. My job is to work with Irish Microsoft partners on System Center, Forefront, and virtualisation (Hyper-V). And I am also involved in a lot of more general Windows work, e.g. working with partners selling Windows 7. And the powers that be decided it would be good for business for me to go to Build.
You will be able to find all of my blog posts from Build here.
