What's in the storage for Built 2014

Built 2014,the Microsoft’s developer conference was really a big event spanning days and multiple sessions, with too many details to cover.

To cut things short, check out the highlighted keynotes and key takeaways from official press release.

In a nutshell, Built 2014 made the following key announcements:
  • Windows Phone 8.1 - Cortana (powered by BING search), S/MIME for encrypted mail, VPN support
  • Windows 8.1 Updates - Key features of the update include user interface improvements for mouse and keyboard users and performance and compatibility enhancements to Internet Explorer 11
  • $0 royalty licensing program for OEM and ODM partners developing smartphones and tablets with screens under nine inches
  • Three new Lumia smartphones for Windows Phone 8.1
  • Visual Studio 2013 Update 2 Release - Universal projects allow developers to use approximately 90 percent of the same code, a single packaging system, and a common user interface to target apps for phones, tablets and PCs

Built 2014 was held at the Moscone Center, San Francisco, CA,April 2 – 4
