Haven’t registered yet for Microsoft’s Build developer conference? Wait list for you

Registration for Microsoft’s Build developer conference, happening Oct. 30-Nov. 2 in Redmond, sold out within an hour this morning.

Build is Microsoft’s fall conference in which the company aims to get independent developers excited about creating apps and programs for its platforms.

This year’s Build conference is scheduled to start just four days after the Oct. 26 expected launch of Windows 8. According to the Build website, the conference will include plenty about Windows 8, including how to design and build Windows 8 apps and how to sell the apps in the Windows 8 store.

On the agenda is also Windows Azure, Windows Phone 8, Windows Server 2012, Visual Studio 2012 and Xbox.

Microsoft is not saying at this time how many people have registered or what the capacity is.

It also would not specify whether the keynotes and sessions will be livestreamed, but did say in a statement that there will be some kind of “online experience.”

The company’s statement says: “Build 2012 sold out in less than an hour. Build 2012 will be unlike anything we’ve held on our corporate campus in a long time. For those unable to attend, there will be a world class online experience and local developer events throughout the world. Learn more at http://buildwindows.com.”
