    Thousands of analysts, journalists and developers came to the Washington State Conference Center in Seattle today to see what Microsoft had to unveil at its three-hour-long Build conference. As it turns out, there wasn't a lot of interesting news for non-developers. In other words, if you had played a drinking game with the trigger words being "Azure," "Microsoft Graph" and "Visual Studio," you would have needed two kegs of liquor. To be fair though, Build is an event for developers.

    Still, there were updates around new Cortana skills, artificial intelligence for the workplace and a PowerPoint translator tool that may have useful applications for consumers. We've distilled the highlights for you in the 13-and-a-half-minute video above, so you don't have to sit through an excruciatingly long recap. Be sure to come back tomorrow for our coverage of the second-day keynote, which we're expecting to be far more exciting for consumers.
