For those unaware, Microsoft Build is among the company’s largest events held annually. It is focused on developers. Microsoft also uses the Build to announce new updates to its services like Windows, Office, Edge, and more.
Microsoft Build is attended by close to 5,000 people including developers and media to get direct, first-hand access to the technologies and features. The event was canceled last year as well and in favor of a digital event due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 48-hour event was streamed live.
