Microsoft will hold a special Windows developer event later this year.

The software giant unveiled the final naming for the event on Wednesday during a Windows 8 demo. BUILD is a new event that Microsoft describes as showing “modem hardware and software” taking advantage of the future of Windows:

Learn how to work with the all new touch-centric user experience to create fast, fluid, and dynamic applications that leverage the power and flexibility of the core of Windows, used by more than a billion people around the world.

Hear how the UI was designed to work seamlessly with a diversity of devices and form factors. Go behind the scenes and learn all about the new app model that allows you to create powerful new apps. All while retaining the ability to use your existing apps. Web-connected and web-powered apps built using HTML5 and JavaScript have access to the power of the PC. Touch-optimized browsing, with the full power of hardware-accelerated Internet Explorer 10 transforms your experiences with the web. BUILD is the first place to dive deep into the future of Windows.

The BUILD conference replaces Microsoft’s Professional Developers Conference, typically held every year. The company is expected to deliver an early beta copy of Windows 8 at the conference and fully detail its plans for the next-generation of Windows. More information can be found at buildwindows.com
