  • Wed, 17:51: RT @IanET: Love that BUILD keynotes still include a lot of coding. Not just a marketing event, sorry marketing :)
  • Wed, 17:51: RT @owenthomas: Unlike Apple, Microsoft doesn't struggle to find technical women to highlight on stage. @SQLGal is talking elastic database…
  • Wed, 17:52: RT @edbott: Hilarious to read complaints about too much code in the keynote for a DEVELOPERS CONFERENCE. #Build2015
  • Wed, 17:52: RT @jerrynixon: Announcing Azure SQL DW (the 1st cloud DW that can grow & shrink to any size in seconds). #PowerBI #Build2015
  • Wed, 17:54: RT @sedouard: @nicolaiarocci I've been using it for a few weeks now on OS X. WAY more lightweight than BigVS with debugging and intellisense
  • Wed, 18:00: RT @edbott: Protip: Boring things run the world and allow a lot of people to make money.
  • Wed, 18:03: Just put a keyword like files or events on the end. Now @sbisson is trying to persuade me that micro-services really don't reinvent SOAP
  • Wed, 18:05: Finally - an SDK for embedding Skype including presence information in apps. That's been a big gap
  • Wed, 18:07: Looks like all the presenters are using their own, live computers to present. Complete with their usual notifications ;) BYOD at the keynote
  • Wed, 18:08: Nadella not looking at anyone in particular when he says they've been patiently waiting to hear about Windows... ;)
  • Wed, 18:11: Uh oh. The backdrop for @tmyerson is a bridge. What bridge is Windows building?
  • Wed, 18:12: RT @gchiemingo: Terry hit the stage at 10:10...
  • Wed, 18:13: The carrier billing deals will be one of the things coming out of the Nokia acquisition
  • Wed, 18:14: RT @rajen_k: Carrier billing announced not just for phones, but ALL Windows devices #build2015 #bldwin #wpdev #wpnl
  • Wed, 18:16: RT @maryjofoley: Windows Store for Business: Will offer consumer apps and private LOB apps. Biz payment method options #Build2015
  • Wed, 18:16: Ballsy goal; a billion devices running Windows 10 in 2 years (includes phone)
  • Wed, 18:19: USA Today being able to put their universal app on Xbox with just one more hour of coding is impressive
  • Wed, 18:25: If Ms is going to do the silly rumoured Android thing I wish they'd just say so and break my Windows Phone heart now...
  • Wed, 18:29: ;(
  • Wed, 18:29: RT @edbott: Win32 apps will be available from the Windows Store, running in App-V containers. Huge development. #Build2015
  • Wed, 18:30: So many fantastic ways to develop for Windows 10. But why bother if you can just slap out an Android thing?
  • Wed, 18:34: Sounds like there are lot of devs in the room who are very familiar with "the weirdnesses of objective C"
  • Wed, 18:35: The right number of Apples is zero?
  • Wed, 18:36: If converting the code is good enough for iOS apps, why not do the same thing for Android? Why do Android devs need their own subsystem?
  • Wed, 18:38: RT @sbisson: (Guessing much of the Objective C integration will be from LVVM support in Visual Studio)
  • Wed, 18:40: Microsoft wants to take up space on my Start menu for apps I haven't asked for? How about NO! Needs to be recently installed all the time
  • Wed, 18:45: RT @edbott: Joe Belfiore showing off some new features. "You'll be getting this in a flight coming soon." #Windows10 #Build2015
  • Wed, 18:46: RT @film_girl: The one good thing for Windows developers about the iOS/Android stuff is that unlike BBRY, you can’t just repackage an app a…
  • Wed, 18:48: I'm happy to have suggestions on the lock screen where I can look or ignore. But the start menu and type-to-launch-apps are off limits
  • Wed, 18:50: Called it. New browser name is Microsoft Edge
  • Wed, 18:58: Why does Microsoft always show windows scattered across the desktop like the start menu threw up, not arranged for actual work?
  • Wed, 19:00: RT @fxshaw: Save some energy people. Seriously. :)
  • Wed, 19:05: Slap an android app on Windows 10 and it will miss out hugely. Wouldn't work for Continuum on a phone using a Bluetooth kb HDMI screen
  • Wed, 19:06: RT @BitShifter64: Between @DrPizza and @marypcbuk, I feel like I'm at #Build2015. The only two who got it right. I'm excited for MS, and I'…
  • Wed, 19:07: I'm sorry but @akipman shirt is *really* freaking me out!
  • Wed, 19:08: Good reminder that HoloLens is mixed reality; you can walk around wearing it and not walk into walls/fall seen steps
  • Wed, 19:15: RT @bdsams: But hey, Apple built a Watch.
  • Wed, 19:15: RT @benthompson: Microsoft, the company staking its future on the cloud, letting you run it all off a phone. Apple, the device company, dep…

  • Wed, 19:27: Cure robot waving gets a lot of applause ;)
  • Wed, 19:29: If you're at Build, you can try on a HoloLens to see it in action - and write some code and see that running. Limited amount of slots to try
  • Wed, 22:50: RT @natfriedman: Xamarin passes 1 million developer downloads! Plus, Xamarin.Forms for Windows, Apple Watch apps from VS, and more! http:/…
  • Wed, 23:50: The orange of iterating & changing & looking at design is a much bigger part of building Windows 10 - Albert Shum
  • Thu, 00:05: Photos on phone will have pivot not hamburger. Spartan "we're listening" but no commitment to move url bar to bottom
  • Thu, 00:09: So Albert Shum saying they hear feedback of "some people" wanting URL bar at the bottom, still listening. Who is asking for it at the top?
  • Thu, 00:10: Also if you want Project Spartan/Edge URL bar at bottom of screen on phone, you have to keep asking for it. Apparently not clear feedback?!
  • Thu, 00:14: RT @SirKneeland: Wouldn't it be great if Secret was just the first of a huge wave of idiotic SV bubble apps to collapse in the next few mon…
  • Thu, 00:14: RT @nicolaiarocci: How nice, a project.json file for ASPNET5 projects. And no need to stop and rebuild at every change. #Build2015

  • Thu, 00:19: RT @inafried: Analyst very nicely asking whether Microsoft really needs Windows Phone. Nadella very nicely says, yes we do need to be in ha…
  • Thu, 00:20: RT @LBugnion: Albert Shum compares the state of Windows 10 design to the Seattle waterfront. "one day it will be beautiful" 😁
  • Thu, 00:24: Message from this design session is really save hamburger for deep navigation people don't do very often; pivot, app bar still there to use
  • Thu, 00:26: Albert Shum saying Cortana, Spartan, HoloLens is "where our design is evolving to". But where are the examples for familiar tasks?
  • Thu, 00:26: RT @gcaughey: What's new in Windows Store? Distributing Windows Apps to the World by @toddbrix #Build2015 #wpdev
  • Thu, 00:26: RT @LBugnion: What I take from Albert Shum's design session is that we are, for the first time, observing a work in progress and design ite…
