Based on feedback, Build 2020 will focus exclusively on developer content, so there won’t be any news for consumers or end users. Most of the content will consist of small sessions and breakouts, and while there will be some short high-level overviews, we won’t see the long keynotes we had in the past.
The content will also be more pragmatic and focus on tools and information that developers can use. There will be much less of an emphasis on the future.
No new strategies will be announced at Build 2020.
Day 2 will focus on AI and will feature an appearance by Microsoft CTO Kevin Scott.
Most of the content will be broadcast live, with some short pre-recorded videos, and it will include a combination of people in the Channel 9 studios and Microsoft employees at their homes.
There should be an official announcement soon.
