Next Build Conference Will Focus on Metro Apps

The Build Conference isn't exactly a regular event. Microsoft only puts this developer event on when it has something important to talk about. Windows 8 preview was the subject of the last one.

The next Build is poised to take advantage of the Win 8 buildup, and will happen the week after the OS ships in late October.

This is a huge deal for developers. With Metro, you are really developing more like a Web programmer with the integration of  HTML 5. Of course, programmers have been sort of moving in this direction for a while, using managed code approaches that aren't locked to specific architectures.
