Microsoft Build is Microsoft's annual developer conference. It's a major event where Microsoft announces new products, services, and updates to its existing lineup. The conference is primarily aimed at developers, but the news and updates often have broader relevance to the tech industry and Microsoft's customer base.
Microsoft Build typically includes a mix of keynotes, technical sessions, demos, and opportunities for developers to get hands-on experience with Microsoft's latest technologies. Developers also get to network with other professionals, learn from experts, and explore the latest tools and technologies from Microsoft and its partners.
These events can be particularly exciting for developers who work with Microsoft technologies, such as Windows, Azure, Office 365, or Visual Studio, because they often include previews or launches of new features and capabilities in these areas.
