Microsoft’s annual Build conference will be virtual again this year, running from May 25 to May 27. According to Microsoft, Build is “where developers, architects, start-ups, and students learn, connect, and code together, sharing knowledge and expanding their skill set, while exploring new ways of innovating for tomorrow.”

Thanks at least in part to COVID-19, this is the second year that Build is being held as a virtual event—which follows Microsoft’s statement last year that all its conferences would be virtual-only through July 2021. COVID-19 cases are still trending upward; we wouldn’t be surprised to see Microsoft’s in-person event ban not only upheld but extended.
