I just got back from Microsoft Build in San Francisco, which was an amazing event.

Yesterday (Monday 31st) we arrived in San Francisco and checked in at Hilton Union Square. We got a good nights sleep after a few bears at a local pub.

Today was registration day at Microsoft Build. The entire block around the Conference Center was full with Microsoft Commercials. Unfortunately it was raining heavy almost the entire day, so I couldn’t get a good photo from it.

Since registration opened as late as 3.00 PM, we had a full day with sightseeing in San Francisco. Here are a bunch of photos from our day.

You can’t really tell the height by looking at this photo, but the angle of this slope is quite amazing. We took a walk up Nob Hill and down to the docks.

Here are some Panoramic Photos from the docks. The island in the middle is Alcatraz.

Above, is Alcatraz Island. After our long walk down the docks, we went back to the hotel for our car, and went on a trip over Golden Gate Bridge.

When we got back to town, the registration for Build opened, and I went there to register and pick up my pass.

After the registration, I went back to the hotel to freshen up for the Swedish Microsoft Meet Up at the ThirstyBear Brewing Company. On site there were around one hundred Swedish Developers hungry for snacks, beer and a social time.

It was a great day, and an equally great evening with Microsoft Sweden.

Tomorrow Microsoft will open up with a keynote, announcing some new cool stuff. I will be there reporting live at the event.

This is by far the coolest road trip I’ve ever done. Los Angeles to San Francisco.

We started out at Johan’s apartment, Downtown Los Angeles.

Our first stop was Duke’s in Malibu, where we eat a large breakfast.

Bacon, Melon, Chicken and Strawberry. Breakfast for Champions. After breakfast we continued on Pacific Coast Highway One. Our destination was Big Sur and a stay-over in the wilderness.

The road to San Francisco is remarkable. It cannot simply be justified by my pictures. It has to be experienced, because it is so grand.

Once in Big Sur, we found a Lodge dating back to 1925 (If I’m not mistaken).

At around 20:00 (07:00 Swedish Time) we arrive in San Francisco. After checking in to the Hotel, we went out on the town to get a refreshing glass of beer.
