Microsoft Sets Dates for Build Developer Conference

Software giant Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT  ) has now announced official dates for its Build developer conference, which will take place June 26-28 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Tech giants frequently use developer conferences for major product announcements, such as Apple's WWDC or Google I/O, so investors should mark these dates on their calendars. 

The company will provide updates and discuss the future of some of its most important products, including Windows. Registration begins on April 2. 

In 2011, Microsoft publicly unveiled Windows 8, which has been one of the biggest overhauls of Windows in years, at the Build conference.

Microsoft has been focusing heavily on developers recently to bolster its ecosystem, as third-party content has become increasingly important to competition in recent years. In a separate post, Microsoft for the first time officially acknowledged Windows "Blue," which has been rumored as a new upgrade for Windows that may include more regular software updates.
