Garry Trinder, who will be presenting at Build, said:

Build is the one conference that always stands out as a highlight in the year for me. Being developer focused, it provides a deep look into Microsoft’s up and coming developer technologies. I’m particularly excited this year to see Build go hybrid, with sessions being streamed online and taking place at regional in-person events simultaneously, as well as announcements for improvements in capabilities and tooling to help developers build more engaging and innovative collaborative apps on the Microsoft Teams platform.

Rita Silveira da Costa, A photo of Rita Silveira da Costawho will also be presenting, said this about Build:

I’m so excited to be presenting for the first time at Build! Microsoft Build was always one of my favourite Microsoft conferences and it’s the one I’m always eager for. The fact that Microsoft puts so much effort into making each event tailor-made for developers is really amazing. Being a person who loves the combination between pro code and low code, I’m looking forward to the announcements around Power Platform and how we are evolving its integrations with Azure.

Mutlu Dogruel, who is also presenting, said the following:

Microsoft Build is a fantastic opportunity to directly hear from the Microsoft senior leadership and tech leads about cutting-edge developer technologies through the keynotes as well as the themed sessions throughout the event.

In the technology space, what doesn’t change is the constant influx of new or updated services & tools. As such, staying up to date with the latest and greatest is crucial to the developer community, and events like Build immensely help the tech-savvy with this goal. As a data & AI oriented cloud solution architect, I’m particularly interested in the new ML/Al capabilities and how MLOps practitioners will benefit from some of these new capabilities.

In the coming weeks, you’ll be able to use the Microsoft Build session planner to sign up for these talks and more. It’s a great way to see all of the technical content on offer, while tailoring the event specifically to your interests.

Microsoft Build will provide the key developer content for which the event is known, while tailoring the event experience towards topics that developers the world over are looking for.
