Azure the cloud for all – highlights from Microsoft BUILD 2018

Last week, the Microsoft Build conference brought developers lots of innovation and was action packed with in-depth sessions. During the event, my discussions in the halls ranged from containers to dev tools, IoT to Azure Cosmos DB, and of course, AI. The pace of innovation available to developers is amazing. And, in case there was simply too much for you to digest, I wanted to pull together some key highlights and top sessions to watch, starting with a great video playlist with highlights from the keynotes.

Empowering developers through the best tools

Build is for devs, and all innovation in our industry starts with code! So, let’s start with dev tools. Day one of Build marked the introduction of .NET Core 2.1 release candidate. .NET Core 2.1 improves on previous releases with performance gains and many new features. Check out all the details in the release blog and this great session from Build showing what you can use today:

  • .NET Overview & Roadmap: In this session, Scott Hanselman and Scott Hunter talked about all things .NET, including new .NET Core 2.1 features made available at Build.
  • With AI being top of mind in the tech industry, we were excited to share our work on Visual Studio IntelliCode, which helps enable developers by providing intelligent suggestions improving code quality and productivity. We also announced the public preview of Live Share, which lets developers collaborate on their code and problem solve across Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code on Windows, Mac and Linux. Jason Warner, SVP Technology at GitHub, also joined Scott Guthrie on stage to talk about Microsoft’s commitment to open source and some of the work our teams have been doing.  This included the announcement that if you’re building mobile apps on GitHub you can now use Visual Studio App Center to set up and automate your continuous integration process in just a few clicks, check it out
