8th June 2015, Monday….started early (5:45 AM) to attend Microsoft’s build 15 seminar in Mumbai.
The seminar was hosted by 3 key members…

The main learning area was Universal Windows Platform (UWP), that can run across wide variety of devices, which provides the guaranteed core API layer across devices. You can create a single app package that can be installed onto a wide range of devices. Pete Brown & Shen Chauhan demonstrated some of the good coding sessions & exciting demos which helped a lot to understand new features and advantages.
I was expecting more about Cloud technology.
