Time flies when you’re having fun, and it definitely doesn’t seem like a year since Tech Trends was last at the Washington Convention Center for Microsoft Build 2017.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, will take your coding prowess to new heights, literally. The Search and Rescue Challenge at Microsoft Build will be an exercise in problem-solving, cunning strategy and daring application of your potentially life-saving techniques. You will develop a custom vision model that will optimize the tools on board our search and rescue mission drones.

But as exciting as all of that is — we will of course be covering all the major news as they unfold as we did last year — we’re very much hoping for a chance to delve a bit deeper into Microsoft’s Mixed Reality strategy, including details about the highly anticipated next version of the HoloLens, and plans for developing their recently acquired Social Virtual Reality platform AltspaceVR.

For those not able to make it to the conference in person, Microsoft is also going to be setting up live streaming and interactive events, so be sure to check out their Microsoft Build Live free digital gathering for details.

Microsoft Build takes place from the 7th to 9th May 2018 at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle. Watch this space for the latest news and if you fancy meeting us there be sure to reach out on Twitter @techtrends_tech using the #MSbuild hashtag!
