Microsoft Build 2022: How to watch and what to expect
This page was translated using AI and machine learning.
(Pocket-lint) – Most tech companies hold annual developer conferences, and Microsoft is no exception.
Microsoft spends a few days each year trying to bring developers, software engineers, and IT professionals into its fold, with a developer conference called Microsoft Build. During the multi-day event, the company typically announces updates for its services and platforms, whether it’s Windows 11, Office 365, or the Azure cloud computing platform. . While Build is typically hosted live in Seattle, the pandemic has forced Microsoft to make the event completely virtual in 2020 and free to anyone who registers. The same is true for 2022.

What is MicrosoftBuild?
Build is Microsoft’s annual developer conference. It usually starts in May. The first day is live-streamed and features the most consumer-facing announcements, while the remaining days are reserved for developers to attend training sessions (which can also be viewed online). For the past two years, Build has been a free, virtual-only, multi-day event. For 2022, Build will once again be a virtual affair.

Last year, Microsoft had over 300 sessions on its schedule. They were broadcast live or pre-recorded.
What to expect from construction 2022
During Build 2021, Microsoft teased Windows 11 and opened up Microsoft Teams to apps, among other things. But these are the biggest consumer-facing ads. This year, expect Microsoft to continue to focus on Windows. The company has yet to hint at what it will announce, but when the dev session schedule goes live, hopefully we’ll have a better understanding.
