Post build 2013…

From 26 till 28 June took place the conference Build during which Microsoft reveals its novelties to developers.


This year, it goes without saying that the main subject was Windows 8.1 and its corrections (with regard to the criticisms made on Windows 8 for its release). More complete tools, improved Windows Store, access to Bing for developers, Bing search improved on Windows, Start button, starting up in desktop mode, IE, DirectX 11.2, more applications, etc. Many of positive.

Without counting the cloud, with Windows Azure which will be accessible to the mobile applications (including Android and iOS), Visual Studio, Windows Server…

In brief, a lot of news to be digested 😉


But unfortunately not much of nine to eat for Windows Phone 8 and nothing on Xbox One… It’s a pity, it was the opportunity for which many people had to wait (I in the first one) where Microsoft would have been able to present a unified platform Windows 8 / Xbox One / Windows Phone 8… A missed appointment in a way. It’s going to need still to wait…


The sessions are visible on Channel 9 of MSDN:

See you soon for a more development directed treatment 😉
