Microsoft’s annual Build developer conference is back as a virtual event for 2022. Like the past two Builds, this year’s event will hosted online from May 24 to May 26† Microsoft hosts Build every year as an event for developers, engineers, IT professionals, students, and startups to learn the latest about Microsoft technologies, Windows, Office, and more.
While traditionally held live in Seattle, Microsoft was first forced to make the event virtual in 2020, and the pandemic has again kept this event digital for 2022. However, Microsoft is making some changes. This year will feature “market specific content” for France, Germany, Japan, Latin America and the UK. With repeated sessions, Microsoft is already doing a good job for multiple time zones, and this year’s Build kicks off with the annual keynote on May 24 at 8:30 a.m. PT / 11:30 a.m. ET.
At Build 2021, Microsoft teased its Windows 11 announcement, opened up Microsoft Teams to apps, and built an AI-powered autocomplete for code using GPT-3. This year, we expect the most Windows news at an event next week, but there’s still room for plenty of developer-focused announcements.
