Microsoft’s Build conference in San Francisco is coming to an end today, but there’s more on the horizon. The house of Windows and Xbox will host another big event named de:code at the Prince Park Tower Hotel in Tokyo on May¬†26th and 27th.

The event will span a long series of speeches and round table for developers mostly given by Microsoft engineers and experts, including a few about game development.

For instance, there will be a panel on the gaming technologies and services offered by Windows 10, one about cross platform game development in Unity, and a round table about the Universal Windows Platform, that will also be applied on Xbox One.

Windows 10 and Cloud technology will be the main topics, with many panels across all kinds of applications.

Interestingly, one of the major platinum sponsors for the event is none other than Square Enix, that collaborated with Microsoft to showcase the power of DirectX 12 yesterday at Build 2015.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
