Microsoft has been facing issues regarding its platforms as it has been providing three distinct platforms for its desktops, smartphones and tablets. Microsoft is planning to provide an operating system that could be used and installed on all its desktops, smartphones as well as tablets. This calls for a tremendous effort from developers, which is the main reason behind holding this conference from 2nd to 4th April this year, in San Francisco at Moscone Center.
Last year when the Build Conference was held in June, the company had mainly emphasized on Windows 8.1. They had given insight into their architecture of Windows 8. Users have been expecting Windows 8 to be more refined and seamless. Last year, Steve Ballmer clearly stated that they were then providing superb experience with desktop, bringing back the start button on the desktop and also the ability to boot the desktop directly. Ballmer was also reported to say that Windows 8.1 will enhance the desktop experience giving greater GUI, making life real and more connected. After addressing about Windows 8.1, the company did not prioritize much on developer bugs. There were distinct APIs for Windows desktop and Windows smartphones. The core issue had been synchronizing the two. But no news had been disclosed in that aspect.
Build 2014 might bring up new dimensions to Microsoft’s updates. “Threshold” which is expected to be the Windows 9 will also be discussed in the event. Microsoft will also be updating the Windows 8.1 in 2014, for which they will be launching a service pack known as Update 1 ( or GDR1 internally ). Build 2014, according to news, will also have strict focus on certain releases for Office, Visual Studio, SQL Server, Dynamics, Windows Phone and Xbox. All this being there, the main highlight of the conference will still be “Threshold” or Windows 8.2 or Windows 9. It will not be launched until the dawn of next year, but the update are to be discussed with developers. Build 2014 has the primary motive of adjoining all platforms used in Windows desktops, smartphones and tablets and bind them all with one OS. Windows Phone 8.1 has been in news and this conference holds great time to publicize the much anticipated device.
