Microsoft has announced when you can expect its next-annual Build.

Build 2017 will take place in downtown Seattle, Washington. It's scheduled to start 10 May 2017 and will end 12 May 2017. In past years, Microsoft held Build in San Francisco, California. The company said hosting the two-day event in Seattle this year gives it a "great opportunity to connect even more engineering teams and leaders directly with developers building on the Microsoft platform".

Microsoft uses Build to bring developers into the mix by showing off its future software plans. For instance, we may see the next version of Windows, which follows the release of the Creators Update in early 2017, unveiled at the conference: "We’ll make sure the schedule is filled with solid content, and will strive to deliver some fun surprises along the way," teased Microsoft.

Keep in mind Microsoft hasn't yet confirmed what it will showcase, nor has it announced registration details. If you're interested in attending, you can sign up to the mailing list for more information. When tickets do go on sale, likely in 2017, they will probably sell out fast.
