You had me at ‘Holo’

Tickets to this year’s Microsoft Build Developer Conference were quite literally ‘gone in 60 seconds‘ which shows the incredible respect it commands from industry experts around the globe.

immedia has been lucky enough to secure tickets to Microsoft Build 2016, so African thinking will be proudly represented at the event by some of our developers, who will give us on-the-ground coverage and post-conference analysis later in April.

To give you real-time, local access to this year’s Build Keynote that’ll feature key insights from Microsoft leaders and product specialists at the start of the conference, we’ll also be livestreaming the address at our home, The Quarterdeck, on the 30 March 2016.

Microsoft Build 2016 Keynote at immedia

Why attend?

The beauty of Build is that even though it is a developer event, it also features a huge amount of company news. This year, Microsoft will undoubtedly talk about Windows 10 as it is currently preparing updates to the operating system; at least one of which should be ready to preview by the time of the conference.

There’s also a chance we’ll see the company announce more Windows 10 Phone devices, as follow ups from the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL.

Perhaps most enticingly, we may get a progress report on the HoloLens AR headset, which played a big part in generating excitement around last year’s expo. Will we see close to a finished product from Microsoft? Might we learn when it will go on sale? Could we be treated to a host of new experiences?

With Microsoft the possibilities are endless so ‘let the games begin’!
