It seems like only yesterday we were talking about session for Microsoft Ignite back in March... and here we are looking forward to what's coming up at Microsoft Build which is online from 25 - 27 May. In this post I'm going to highlight some sessions I think are worth checking in on. I am also filtering to our time zone so that you aren't getting up (too) early to catch the best bits of Build!
All dates and times listed are in Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST) which is UTC+10.
Feel free to leave a comment if I've missed any sessions you think would be valuable for developers to catch!
Our local Australian connection is happening on Wednesday afternoon - make sure to tune in to hear about how we can build the next generation of technologists, along with taking a weekend side project from zero to global (in under 15 minutes!)
