Developers can now register for Microsoft Build 2020. The conference runs from May 19-21, 2020 in Seattle, Washington. Build focuses on helping developers learn, connect, and code, and is one of the most recognized developer conferences of the year. You can register to attend the conference on Microsoft's Build page (opens in new tab).

The registration page summarizes how Build can help you "Leave a better developer:"

Experience the latest technologies and learn new ways to solve your development challenges. At Microsoft Build, you'll meet with the engineers behind the products you use every day and connect with your peers. Bring your questions and curiosity to Seattle and leave with inspiration and new skills to use and share.

While Build is a developer conference, consumers often keep their eyes peeled during it. Last year Microsoft announced new features for the new Microsoft Edge, discussed new ways that Cortana will be able to help people, showed its plans for the expansion of the Fluent Design System, showed changes for Windows Terminal, and showed off a mobile augmented reality Minecraft game.

Microsoft Build costs $2,395, not including the cost of hotels.
