Microsoft Build

At last year’s event, “Microsoft announced its latest Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 updates. Build 2014 also marked the launch of Cortana, Microsoft’s Siri and Google Now competitor, and Microsoft used the event to tease both the return of the Start Menu and its touch-friendly Office apps — both of which will now arrive with Windows 10. Microsoft also launched a number of new .NET initiatives at the event, as well as updates to its Azure cloud computing platform.” With the focus this year expected to be squarely on Windows 10, we’re excited to see what will be announced.
