Microsoft’s Build developer conference is taking place this week, with a keynote from CEO Satya Nadella taking place at 12PM ET / 9AM PT on May 23rd. There’ll be an in-person event taking place in Seattle, Washington, but many of the sessions will also be available to watch online.
Similar to other developer conferences like Google I/O and Apple’s WWDC, Microsoft uses Build to make feature announcements for its platforms and provide in-depth sessions for developers and other professionals that rely on its tools. Although there’s been the odd hardware announcement at past Build conferences, Microsoft is normally pretty focused on software and services.
This year’s Build is likely to heavily focus on AI. Microsoft has been busy in recent months building generative AI into many of its products and services, including search engine Bing, browser Edge, GitHub, and Office productivity suite, and it’s showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
Microsoft’s yearly developer conference, Build, is kicking off Tuesday, May 23rd, and running through Thursday, May 25th. The annual event showcases Microsoft’s latest platform improvements for developers, and we’re expecting to hear a lot about the company’s AI plans this year.
Microsoft will hold Build virtually and in person at the Seattle conference center, where developers, students, engineers, and technology professionals will attend to hear the latest announcements on Windows, Microsoft’s productivity apps, Azure cloud services, and more.
Microsoft Build is back, and this time, it’s taking place both digitally and in person from Seattle, Washington. The company has officially announced that its annual developer conference will start on May 23rd and last through May 25th, with pre-day workshops starting on the 22nd.
Last year, Microsoft held a virtual and more limited in-person event due to the covid pandemic. While Build presents an opportunity for developers, students, engineers, engineers, and technology professionals to learn more about Microsoft products, it’s also where Microsoft shares major updates for Windows and its suite of productivity apps.
Microsoft’s Build conference dates just leaked.
It looks like Microsoft is holding its annual Build developers conference in May again this year. Twitter leaker h0x0d has published a marketing image of the Build dates, with an in-person element in Seattle between May 23rd and May 25th. Build 2022 also took place in late May, but the in-person part was very limited. We’ll likely hear a lot about Microsoft’s AI product plans at this year’s event.
