The developer conference will be held from May 25th to May 27th.
Microsoft has opened registration for its Build 2021 developer conference. As in the previous year, the company will hold this year's build virtually. It is scheduled for May 25-27.
Microsoft's Build Conference is aimed at developers and students
Microsoft says students or experienced app developers should attend Build 2021 so they can "acquire actionable skills" and receive direct guidance from Microsoft engineers.
Microsoft's build conference usually focuses on the developer side. This time around, however, Microsoft could make some announcements to consumers, including the next generation of Windows.
In addition to keynotes, Microsoft will hold breakout sessions, one-on-one meetings, meetings of experts from various fields such as cloud, desktop and web development and more. Speakers at Build 2021 include Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella; Kayla Cinnamon, program manager; Kevin Scott, CTO and more.
To reach a wider audience, Microsoft offers human audio translations in French, German, Japanese, Mandarin, and Spanish. This is in addition to 28 AI subtitle languages.
Since this year's build is also taking place virtually, Microsoft does not charge any registration fees. Through 2019, the company charged developers $ 2,395 as the registration fee for its developer event.
If you want access to all of the sessions and keynotes that Microsoft is hosting as part of its developer conference, you should register for the event as soon as possible. Without registration, you will not have access to interactive sessions such as the Learning Zone and Connection Zone, one-on-one meetings with experts, and more.
You can register on the Microsoft Build 2021 build website.
This year's Microsoft Build conference could come up with some surprises
Microsoft is working on a major visual overhaul of Windows 10, codenamed Sun Valley. First tidbits about the Windows 10 Sun Valley update leaked in October 2020. After that, Microsoft slowly introduced Sun Valley design-related changes to the Windows 10 clock and alarm apps.
Even if Microsoft announces a major visual overhaul of Windows 10 in Build 2021, the release should still take a few months. Microsoft is also expected to announce a revamped new app store for Windows 10 at the event, especially after increasing the amount of money game developers receive from every sale through the store.
Microsoft could have a few other surprises in store for its Build 2021 conference. For that we have to prepare for the conference later this month.
