Windows '8' Preview Conference, Build, Sold Out

Microsoft's hotly anticipated Build conference, during which much more is expected to be revealed about Windows "8" and Windows Server "8," is sold out.

Buzz around the show, which is something of a combination between the Professional Developers Conference and the Windows Hardware Engineering Conference, intensified after the early June previews of Windows 8.

The Sept. 12-16 show in Anaheim, Calif. seems to have sold out despite a complete lack of detail about its content. The agenda page has time slots with entries like, "9:00am-11:00am Keynote," and, "11:30am-6:00pm Sessions."

According to the show home page, Build will be "the first place to dive deep into the future of Windows."

The description promises attendees will get details about the touch-centric user experience, a new app model, the special role of HTML5 and JavaScript and Internet Explorer 10.
