Build 2017 – Keynote Day 1 – Links

Today Build 2017 kicked off with Day 1 keynote containing a ton of announcements. I could not take part of the keynote streaming right from the beginning, but during that hours of keynote social media accounts were flooded with all those news & announcements.

With that post I would like to store (for my and hopefully your future reference) links of the announcements. I know – many links are missing – but if you send me the missing links (or add a comment to that post) we can extend the list together..
