Highlights from Microsoft //Build/ 2016, Epicenter

10th Magnitude consultants Scott Nowicki and Nate Burleson attended Microsoft’s Build 2016 developer conference and came away thinking, ”It’s a new Microsoft, for sure. It’s a different company.” In this video, they share their top Build highlights in a lunch and learn session with the 10th Magnitude team.

Microsoft covered a wide range of technology developments at Build related to its “mobile first, cloud first” focus, including cognitive services development, application development strategies and projects, and the expansion of data and business intelligence analytics suites in Azure. With more focus on driving application development and businesses into the cloud, Microsoft brought a new clarity to the Azure platform that empowers all levels of companies.

Other exciting developments from Microsoft include:

  • Ubuntu on Windows
