Microsoft’s yearly Build developer conference is returning in 2022 as a virtual event. This year’s Build, like the previous two, will be held online from May 24th-May 26th. Every year, Microsoft sponsors Build as a conference for developers, engineers, IT professionals, students, and startups to learn about the newest Microsoft technologies, Windows, Office, and other topics.
While the event is usually held in person in Seattle, Microsoft was compelled to make it virtual in 2020, and the pandemic has prompted Microsoft to do it digitally, again in 2022. Microsoft, on the other hand, is making some modifications. This year, “market-specific material” will be available for France, Germany, Japan, Latin America, and the United Kingdom.
Microsoft already does a decent job of accommodating numerous time zones with repeated sessions, and this year’s Build will begin off with the annual keynote on May 24th at 8:30 a.m. PT / 11:30 a.m. ET.
Microsoft teased Windows 11 at Build 2021, opened up Microsoft Teams to applications, and used GPT-3 to build an AI-powered code completion. Most of the Windows news will be announced at an event next week, but there will still be enough room for developer-focused announcements.
