So what did I think of Build 2018?
It got off to a tough start, for sure. The high-mindedness of Satya Nadella's vision fell flat for many of the Build attendees I spoke with this week. It did so for me as well: While it's hard to argue against his pro-accessibility and pro-privacy stance, the case could have been made in a far more expedient fashion. This part of the keynote should have been shorter, but it also should have come at the conclusion.
