Microsoft’s next Build conference is happening at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle in early May. If you want to join us there for the show, you should move quickly: Registration is now open.
Visit the Build website to register now. Or at least try: When I gave it a shot, the online registration system was overwhelmed.

Build 2017 runs from Wednesday, May 10 through Friday, May 12.
“Software continues to transform the world in remarkable ways and developers are at the center of it,” the Build website notes. “At Microsoft Build 2017 we invite you to join us in downtown Seattle to learn about latest new technologies and exciting plans on the horizon.”
“As always, Microsoft Build is filled with strong technical sessions as well as opportunities to meet and learn from others in the industry. We’ll make sure the schedule is filled with solid content, and will strive to deliver some fun surprises along the way.”
I don’t believe Build/PDC was ever held at the Washington State Convention Center, but I’ve been there many times, most notably for several WinHEC conferences. This was also the site of the 1998 Windows NT 5.0 Reviewers Workshop that inspired me to start the website that became the SuperSite for Windows.
See you in Seattle!

<p>It’s a good thing they called it CShell, because that won’t cause any confusion :)</p>
<p>For the most part, the goal of running an app unmodified on both the desktop and on small devices is misguided. Too much design compromise is required to make that happen. With work you can build a UWP app today that will adapt nicely between a desktop and a phone – as long as you design it in a small-screen-touch-friendly way (e.g. big touch targets, low control density etc).</p>
<p>You could also use Continuum which strikes me as a technology that’s akin to having a cell phone that must be plugged into a telephone socket in the wall to make a call.</p>
