Welcome to //BUILD

June 26th, 2013

This year’s BUILD conference is June 26-28 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California.  This will be the first broad discussion and distribution of the next versions of Windows and Internet Explorer, and we hope to see many of you there!

The IE engineering team will have seven presentations at BUILD focusing on techniques and tools for building fast, touch-friendly, and immersive sites that harness the power of Windows. If you are at the show, we would encourage you to attend any of the following:
