About Build Microsoft
According to the website, Build is a conference where developers, architects, students and startups can learn, code and connect with each other. They can also share their knowledge and expand their skill set while exploring groundbreaking ways of innovating for the future.
The first-ever Build by Microsoft was held in the year 2011 and it serves as a successor to the previous developer conferences by Microsoft, the MIX and the Professional Developers Conference. Previously, the Microsoft-organized event has been held at Microsoft Redmond campus, Anaheim Convention Center, Washington State Convention Center and Moscone Center.
The biggest attraction at Build Microsoft for developers is the keynote event, where the tech giant usually talks about the latest software updates it’s going to bring in its platforms and services, including Windows 10. At Microsoft Build 2020, the company announced some of its efficient features for Project Reunion, Teams and other platforms. The tech company also showcased its PowerToys Run launcher and Fluid Framework amongst other products.
The conference was attended by about 5,000 people including media and developers to get first-hand access to the latest technologies and features. In 2020, Microsoft Build was canceled and held as a virtual event due to the pandemic. The 48-hour digital event was live-streamed.
