Midway Through #MSIgnite: Microsoft’s Progress

2015-May-Day-3-Arie-Crown.jpg

The true measure of whether a vendor technology conference is successful in its goals is to gauge attendees’ attitudes past the halfway point.  Today at Microsoft’s Ignite conference in Chicago, the overflow seating areas for folks who could not get seats in the session rooms are still stacked full of developers.

Developers. When Ignite was launched, it was supposed to be mainly an implementers’ conference with development sessions added.

There is still no final release date, but during the Build 2015 keynote in San Francisco yesterday, developers got their first glimpses of Office 16 (version No. 16 and also, quite likely, 2016) for the classic Win32 desktop platform.

Is Microsoft Office Fundamentally Changing? #Build2015

This morning at Microsoft’s annual Build developers conference in San Francisco, CEO Satya Nadella announced what he calls a “fundamental change” to the forthcoming Microsoft Office 16.

An early demonstration of the company’s forthcoming Office add-ins enable an Uber customer to book a ride through what used to be known as an appointment screen.
