This is live  blog post for //BUILD/2015 keynote April 29th, starting 11:30 ET. I will start before the event starts. I choose not to go “he said this or he is showing that” action by action style. I will post more comments than actions, but you won’t miss any important or interesting stuffs. I suggest that you watch the live stream (click here), and check back what I think from time to time, or afterwards.
