Build Conference Shows Microsoft Has Eye on Future with Bots, HoloLens

Microsoft recently hosted Build, a multi-day conference in San Francisco.

As with previous years, Microsoft Build 2016 continued to focus on enabling developers to do amazing work as businesses and industries transform in support of the shift to a cloud-first, mobile-first world.

Filled with strong technical sessions as well as opportunities to meet and learn from others in the industry, the conference saw Microsoft make a number of announcements, both big and small.

For example, Microsoft announced that Windows is closing in on 300 million users—it’s at 270 right now. The company also expressed a strong interest in bots and how they could improve software experiences with Skype, Cortana, and Windows. Microsoft also noted that HoloLens has started shipping the $3,000 pre-released edition.
