Microsoft has updated the web page with the upcoming events by adding information on the annual conference for the developers of Build 2021. According to published data, this year the conference will be held in the form of a virtual event from 25 to 27 May. Thus, a conference for Microsoft Build developers for the second year in a row will be held in the online format.
The website dedicated to the event has not yet been updated, so there is still information about last year’s conference. Recall that the Annual Microsoft Build event is primarily focused on developers and usually demonstrate future changes in Windows, Office and other Microsoft products during the conference.
Because of the Coronavirus Pandemic, Microsoft Build 2020 also took place in the online format and was available for free for everyone. Reports of participants were broadcast in real time, so all interested people could see them. Among other things, at last year’s Microsoft conference presented new products such as Fluid Framework and Project Reunion.
The reason why the Build 2021 conference was transferred to the virtual space, also lies in the coronavirus pandemic, to reduce the negative impact of which on the territory of the United States is not yet possible. Despite the fact that approximately 30% of the US population received at least one dose of coronavirus vaccine, disease control and prevention centers still recommend to people to avoid visiting mass events.
