Microsoft Build Tour 2015 Mumbai started with keynote session and it was a great event to attend, not only for Developers but for IT Professionals as well. This event helped me to understand different Microsoft technologies in detail.
Some of the important topics which were covered in this event was Microsoft Edge (new Microsoft browser), One Store for One Windows, Windows Universal applications, Windows Store for Business, 1 billion Windows 10 devices in 2 to 3 years, etc
Last but not the least there were super cool demos of Machine Learning ,this was best part of the event.
One store for everything – Music, Games, Applications for all the platforms. One store for One Windows, Microsoft announces Windows 10 “one platform”, one store for all devices from IoT to data centers.
Windows Store for Business will allow businesses to publish apps. Businesses will be able to publish public and private apps. In the future, school and organizations can ask their users to login to Windows Store for Business and install the applications which are required for day to day operation
