It's finally time for Microsoft's biggest developer event of the year: Build. Build 2016 is taking place in San Francisco once again, and it's sure to be full of exciting news, announcements, and tech stories. If you can't be at Build in person, don't worry - there are many different ways you can be involved. I'll be here for the entire event, and will be highlighting news, announcements, and action that's relevant to student developers.
