Microsoft's developer-oriented technology event will also take place virtually this year.
Microsoft's Build Developer Conference will take place entirely online from May 25-27, 2021. At this event, developers and students from around the world can share their expertise on Microsft products and services.
Microsoft Build 2021 will be completely virtual
The Build Conference is used by Microsoft to discuss upcoming features and developer tools for the various products and services. Microsoft also uses the event to start new software updates.
According to a Microsoft-confirmed report from ZDNet, the annual Build conference will be held practically this year.
The Microsoft Events website was recently updated to reflect the dates of the Microsoft Build 2021 conference. The Microsoft Build website has yet to be updated for this year's event at the time of writing.
Smaller "What & # 39; s Next" events to complement the larger Build conference could also be on the table.
No details have been released yet regarding registration and pricing. Given that last year's 48-hour build event was free for everyone, Microsoft could go the same way this year too.
What to Expect from Microsoft Build 2021
Given Microsoft's history of using Build as a platform for announcing new products and software, it's safe to say that a big announcement could be in the box this year as well.
Microsoft is likely to release more information about Windows 10X and the Windows 10 Sun Valley update.
Microsoft Office, on the other hand, could take a back seat this year. This is mainly because previous build conferences have already paid a lot of attention to the subject while ignoring Windows.
Other Microsoft products such as Azure, Xbox, Power Platform and IoT have also been at the forefront of recent Microsoft build events.
In a fireside chat at Ignite 2021, Panos Panay, CEO of Surface and Windows, said:
I haven't talked about the next generation of Windows and what's next, but I can tell you that I'm so excited.
All of this points to a more Windows-centric Microsoft build in 2021.
Larger Virtual Tech Conferences in 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic took us by surprise in 2020 and companies had to adapt to the new normal very quickly.
In 2021, companies will be better prepared to organize virtual events and conferences. Like Microsoft, Apple will also host its World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) virtually.
The Google I / O Conference 2020 has been canceled by Google. The chances for Google to organize one this year are slim, too.
Microsoft Build and WWDC could be the only major developer conferences held in 2021.
