Microsoft keeps telling us its transforming, becoming something bigger and better than ever before. This past week shows that this isn’t just marketing talk, and that we’re ultimately the ones to benefit from this.
Just before Build 2015 began, I had the privilege to sit in on a special presentation by Microsoft’s General Manager of Developer Experience, Bryan Biniak. He was speaking to a room full of press from all over the world, gathered for the annual IFA Global Press Conference weekend, this year in the sunny climbs of Malta.
It was a big deal for the event, as they’d never had Microsoft on board as a partner before. But after the presentation, and now after the Build day 1 keynote, the puzzle pieces of Microsoft’s ambitious plans are starting to fit together.
