The Online registration for Microsoft BUILD conference has sold out without Microsoft posting an agenda for the three- four-day event (five, if you include the pre-con day). Early-bird discounted Build registration ended as of August 1, as well.

Microsoft announced plans for its Windows 8 developer conference in mid-September, known as Build, back on June 1, as a replacement for its Professional Developers Conference (PDC) and WinHEC (Windows Hardware Engineering Conference) -- at least for this year. There's no word as to whether Build will be a recurring event or how much (if any) Windows Phone, Xbox/XNA and/or Azure development content will be included as part of the conference.

The Build Web site includes the following description as to the purpose of the show:

"Hear how the (Windows) 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."

There is still no detailed session list, keynote list or speaker list available for the conference.
