Microsoft's Build 2013 conference is well underway.
Windows 8.1 Preview has been released to the public and it's a full installer, not an upgrade for live Windows 8 systems. So if you fancy taking the new features for a spin we advise you go virtual or use some spare hardware.
Software developers who choose .NET as their weapon of choice developers can get an early look at Visual Studio 2013 and .Net 4.5.1 previews.
We'll write these up in greater detail in the next few days, and rest assured will be including the best new features once they're production-ready in our hands-on .NET development courses with Visual Studio.
We're taking a good look at the TFS 2013 preview and will try to incorporate an overview of the latest new features in our Team Foundation Server training course.
