Microsoft Build is back, and this time it’s taking place both digitally and in person from Seattle, Washington. The company has officially announced that its annual developer conference will start on May 23 and run until May 25, with pre-day workshops starting on the 22nd.
Last year, Microsoft held a virtual and more limited in-person event due to the covid pandemic. Although Build offers developers, students, engineers, engineers and technology professionals the opportunity to learn more about Microsoft products, it is also where Microsoft shares major updates for Windows and its suite of productivity apps.
Although attending the event virtually is free, you will need to pay to attend in person. Even if you’re attending digitally, you’ll still be able to watch live speeches, attend Q&A sessions, and participate in other interactive experiences. You can register for the event hereand fortunately there will be no overlap with Google I/O this year, which is scheduled for May 10.
Correction on March 14, 4:58 p.m. ET: A previous version of the article incorrectly stated that Microsoft had not held an in-person event since 2019, when it held a more limited in-person event in 2022. We regret the error.
