Microsoft Azure provides a broad range of services that enable developers to build, deploy and scale their apps even faster. Our end-to-end platform helps developers focus on apps, not infrastructure and our latest innovations enable developers to build applications with best-in-class developer tools, modernize existing apps as well as build cloud native applications.


 


Discover the latest news in Azure application development at Microsoft Build 2021 and explore how Microsoft’s developer toolkit and platform allows you to build on your terms and run your applications your way.


 


The online event will be kicking off on the morning of May 25th, at 8.30 AM in the Pacific Time Zone.  The event programming will include a keynote, live segments, breakouts, Ask the Experts, Product Roundtables, Learn Lives, Intro to Technical Skills sessions, and more. This all will be available across multiple time zones. Be sure to visit the Microsoft Build home page to view the event agenda and additional details. We recommend you to register (it is free) to have full attendee experience and be able to participate in Q&As.


 


On Day 1, Amanda Silver, Donovan Brown and Julia Strauss will present Increase Developer Velocity with Microsoft’s end-to-end developer platform technical session, followed by Gabe Monroy, Jeff Hollan and Bec Lyons with Build cloud-native applications that run anywhere technical session. On Day 2, don’t miss Microsoft: Into Focus. Scott Guthrie, Microsoft EVP of Cloud & AI, will recap top key news and messages from Day 1 technical sessions on the breadth and depth of the Microsoft Cloud and Scott Hanselman and Friends will showcase Microsoft’s latest innovative developer resources with one of a kind session and fun demos.
