Microsoft Build Developer Conference 2018: This is what to expect

This week's Microsoft Build conference brings together developers who build tools and applications on top of Microsoft's technology. The Azure Kubernetes Service will also be offered for Azure IoT Edge, the company said.

A new way to connect your phone to your PC with Windows 10 that enables instant access to text messages, photos and notifications. Imagine being able to quickly drag and drop your phone's photos into a document on your PC in one swift movement - without having to take your phone out of your pocket.

DJI's SDK is available as part of a beta preview for attendees at Microsoft Build. Apart from Timeline and Microsoft Graph, the Redmond-based software major might also shed some more light on the recently spotted Windows 10 Lean operating system.

The Cloud Act was backed by Microsoft and much of the tech industry, but criticized by some digital privacy organizations for not going far enough to protect consumers.

Through this partnership, DJI is releasing a Software Development Kit (SDK) for Windows that extends the power of commercial drone technology to the largest enterprise developer community in the world.

What follows are five key announcements from Microsoft in connection with its Build 2018 developers conference.

Microsoft's Visual Studio comes with "Live Share" capability allowing developers to edit in real time with tools like Visual Studio 2017 and VS Code.

While Microsoft is making a public push with FPGAs, Burger wouldn't say if the company is also following Google's lead in building its own chips to accelerate AI workloads in data centers. Expect Microsoft to showcase new technologies, which just like AI are not only to do with developers and apps, but those that cater to industrial setups as well. Microsoft's Azure IoT Edge service uses AI, Azure services and custom logic to deliver cloud intelligence locally on cross-platform IoT devices. Microsoft also announced that SharePoint is being integrated to a deeper level with Teams - so that users can pin a SharePoint page into channels, for instance.

Microsoft also detailed its new Your Phone iOS app for Windows 10.

On Android, the Timeline feature will be integrated within the Microsoft Launcher app to support cross-device app launching.
