Microsoft's annual Build Developer Conference kicks off today, where the company will focus on announcements for Windows, Office and the cloud. Microsoft typically hosts Build in Seattle for about 5,000 developers who pay about $ 2,000 to attend, but the pandemic means Build goes completely online this year and is free to watch for everyone.
Microsoft will host 48 hours of nonstop Build content in different time zones starting at 8 a.m.PT / 11 a.m.ET today. You can tune into the main keynotes, replay them later, and register for multiple sessions that also play at different hours of the day. If you are interested in software development, or just the latest news about Windows, Office and more, you can register for free to attend this virtual build.
How can I view Microsoft Build?
You must register first. All 604 sessions are streamed on Microsoft's website and you can create a schedule here to attend the sessions most interesting in your own time zone.
Microsoft has also pledged to stream live coding workshops on Twitch, but the company has not yet shared details on which Twitch channel they are hosted on.
What Time Does Microsoft Build Begin?
If you want to watch, the stream starts at 8am PT / 11am ET and lasts 48 hours with varying content.
