Build 2015, the Microsoft conference which brings around 5,000 developers to the Moscone Center in San Francisco, begins tomorrow. The conference is sold out, but you can livestream the keynote presentations from to catch all the big announcements. You can also follow along on Twitter at the #Build2015 hashtag.


There will be a major keynote presentation featuring CEO Satya Nadella today (Wednesday) from 8:30AM to 11:00AM Pacific Time. But R users should also be sure to tune in to the keynote tomorrow (Thursday), also from 8:30AM to 11:00AM. I can reveal that R will be a significant component of the presentation by Joseph Sirosh, and will include at around 9:30AM a live demo of Revolution R running in the Azure cloud. I can't reveal all the details yet, but there will be a live demo of distributed big-data computing with R on Azure HDInsights Hadoop using Bioconductor, and Shiny. There will also be several other very cool machine learning applications to see. Don't miss it!
