Finally, if you’re a developer, you don’t want to miss the BUILD conference, which will contain many in-depth sessions on building with Windows 8. This is the “developer conference” that was referenced by Steven Sinofsky at MIX this year (which many people interpreted to be PDC, the Professional Developers Conference). It’s in Anaheim, California on Sept 13-16, 2011. You can register at http://buildwindows.com.
