Microsoft’s annual developer conference – Build – will begin on May 19 this year. The tech giant has not completely canceled the event due to the current epidemic, but has turned it into a virtual event. Also, this time, developers are not required to pay the customary heavy fees to be part of the build, as Microsoft is making registration absolutely free. The Microsoft Build Conference 2020 will be a virtual 48-hour event that will see the company’s CEO Satya Nadella making a short keynote speech to kick things off, followed by a session hosted by Microsoft Principal Program Manager Scott Hanselman.
The upcoming Microsoft Build Virtual event will begin on May 19 at 8 am (8.30pm IST) and will run for 48 hours thereafter. The event will include sessions, talks and demos to help developers be more productive at home. The experienced engineers behind Microsoft products will conduct these sessions. Build 2020 will also enable developers to build community connections and provide open opportunities for collaborating with peers around the world and with Microsoft engineers.
With the aim of lending help to the developer community, Microsoft will provide assistance in troubleshooting and optimizing developer projects, and take their code and application architecture to the next level. Microsoft notes that it can introduce new developer-focused innovations to help build unique products in these uncertain times
Registration for Microsoft Build 2020 this year is free, and developers can visit the [dedicated website] (https://mybuild.microsoft.com/) to sign up.
