Microsoft Starts Filling up its Build 2022 Session Catalog

Posted on April 18, 2022 by Laurent Giret in Microsoft with 1 Comment

We’re just a little more than a month away from Microsoft’s Build 2022 developer conference, and the company has quietly started to update its session catalog for the event. Over the weekend, Microsoft watcher WalkingCat highlighted two sessions that may be of particular interest this year.

On May 24, the first day of Build 2022, Microsoft will have a session about the Metaverse featuring Nicole Herskowitz, the person responsible for Microsoft Teams product marketing, as well as Sam George, CVP of Azure IoT. Along with NFTs and web3, the Metaverse has been one of the big buzzwords of 2022, though Microsoft actually started talking about it since its Ignite conference last fall.

On May 25, Microsoft will also have a session focusing on how Windows allows developers to create apps for many platforms including Linux, Android, and the cloud. In the session description, the company teases that it will “unveil some exciting news … you don’t want to miss this session!

The rest of the session catalog isn’t fully fleshed out yet, but some items did stick out already: There will be one session dedicated to Microsoft Teams apps coming to Office and Outlook, another one focusing on embedding Teams calling into apps, and Microsoft will also talk about its plans to evolve the Microsoft Store for Business and Education with the Windows Package Manager and Intune.

As of this writing, there are 82 sessions listed on the Microsoft Build website, though many of them are still placeholders with no details. Microsoft has yet to open registrations for its Build 2022 conference, but the developer event will once again be virtual and free to all this year.

    ...a common UI stack that competes with Flutter and runs on Windows and web would be nice :-)
