Sesiones del Build 2013 agrupadas por tecnología


Este domingo compartí con vosotros un resumen de las keynotes del Build 2013,  pero las keynotes no fue todo lo que pasó en el Build. Tuvimos también más de 170 sesiones técnicas de distinto nivel, que gracias al equipo de Channel 9, estuvieron disponibles para verlas bajo demanda entre 24 y 48 horas después de que acabaran.

Dado que puede resultar complicado encontrar la sesión que queremos entre tantas diferentes, he pensado que os sería útil disponer de un post a modo de índice con las sesiones del Build agrupadas por tecnología.

Espero que le podáis sacar provecho a la hora de priorizar el orden en el que vais a ver las sesiones.

Tenemos entretenimiento para varios días, si alguien de vosotros suma los minutos de formación que suponen todas estas sesiones, por favor que lo comparta :)
