Microsoft Build 2020 was also held remotely. The 48-hour event was free of charge; workshops and keynotes were live-streamed. The build is primarily targeted at developers and is often Microsoft’s opportunity to showcase upcoming changes to Windows, Office, Edge, and other services.

Microsoft Build 2021 physical event:
“In light of the health safety recommendations for Washington State, we will deliver our annual Microsoft Build event for developers as a digital event, in lieu of an in-person event,” Microsoft said while canceling the Microsoft Build 2021 physical event.
“The safety of our community is a top priority,” a Microsoft spokesperson told in a statement regarding last year’s announcement. “We look forward to bringing together our ecosystem of developers in this new virtual format to learn, connect and code together.”
Interested users can sign up for the event using their Microsoft, LinkedIn, or GitHub accounts. A special sign is also available for Microsoft Work or School accounts as well as Microsoft employees.
Microsoft is believed to have turned its focus to its flagship operating system Windows in 2021. Microsoft will likely promote Windows 10 21H2, Windows 10X, and others at Build 2021.
