Microsoft has just opened registrations for its virtual Build 2022 developer conference, which will be free for everyone to attend on May 24-26. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Microsoft has once again opted for a virtual event this year, and the upcoming Google I/O 2022 conference on May 11-12 will also adopt a similar format.
In recent years, Microsoft’s Build conferences have been pretty light on Windows news, but things could change this year now that Microsoft wants app developers to embrace its brand new Windows 11 OS. Microsoft has already announced 13 speakers at Build 2022 including CEO Satya Nadella, EVP of Cloud & AI Scott Guthrie, CVP of Teams, OneDrive, and SharePoint Jeff Teper, as well as CVP of Microsoft’s Developer Platform Kevin Gallo.
Registration is now open for #MSBuild!?
Join us on May 24-26, 2022, for an engaging experience around the latest innovations and tools. ?

While the full Build 2022 session catalog isn’t available yet, we previously learned that there will be one session dedicated to the Metaverse, and another session focusing on how Windows allows developers to create apps for multiple platforms. This year, Microsoft will also be introducing market-specific content and connection opportunities for Build 2022 attendees in France, Germany, Japan, Latin America, and the UK.
You can register for Microsoft’s free virtual Build 2022 conference on the official website. Let us know in the comments what you would like the company to announce during the event next month.
