BUILD has finally arrived and all attendees survived the opening day; may it be due to the excitement of Windows 8, metro style UX in full action or the Samsung tablet with the Windows Developer Preview. Actually, I doubt it has anything to do with the tablet:)
There are already numerous blog entries related to the announcements; which were published throughout today. Conclusively, I decided to share some of the moments I captured during the day with very few comments.
