Microsoft Build 2021 Book of News

What is the Book of News? The Microsoft Build 2021 Book of News is your guide to the key news items that are announced at Build 2021.

As expected there is a lot of focus on Azure and AI, followed by Microsoft 365, Security, Windows, and Edge & Bing. This year the book of news is interactive instead of being a PDF.

Some of my favorite announcements

Azure Cloud Native and Application Platform

  • Running Azure app services being able to run on Kubernetes clusters anywhere with Azure Arc
  • Native support for WebSocket APIs in Azure API Management is now in preview
  • Azure Communication Services, the first fully managed communication platform offering from a major cloud provider, has new intelligent features and functionality to complete customers’ end-to-end communication experiences
  • Azure Logic Apps is now updated with new hosting options, improved performance and developer workflows
  • Durable Functions, an extension to Azure Functions that lets users write serverless workflows, now supports PowerShell

Azure Cosmos DB

  • With the introduction of the partial document update for Azure Cosmos DB, developers can modify specific fields or properties within a document without requiring a full document read and replace
  • Azure Cosmos DB serverless is now generally available for all APIs (Core, MongoDB, Cassandra, Gremlin and Table)
  • Azure Cosmos DB Linux emulator is now in preview

One of my favorite announcements was the STATIC WEB APPS HOSTING OPTION NOW AVAILABLE IN APP SERVICE IN PUBLIC PREVIEW. This is a new hosting option for JavaScript developers building static or single page apps (SPA) that can quickly host the app in App Service and leverage Azure Functions as an API and GitHub Actions for your CI/CD. Checkout the Azure blog post for more details.

Events

Registration is now open for Microsoft Build 2020

Microsoft Build 2020

Registration for this years Microsoft Build event is now open and will be held in Seattle from May 19 to May 21. You can register at https://register.build.microsoft.com

Microsoft Build focuses on latest trends and future looking technology innovations for leading architects, developers, start-ups and student developers.

Pricing and free child admission

The cost for Build is $2,395 USD and is all-inclusive and provides all access for the full three days or hands-on learning where you can meet with the engineers, and connect with the community.

Just like last year you’re able to bring your aspiring developer (ages 14–21) to the conference, which includes access to the extraordinary Student Zone, for free. There is also a limited number of child passes available.

My Build experience

I had the opportunity to attend my first Microsoft Build conference back in 2018 and I loved it and would recommend it to any developer. I know you can watch almost all of the sessions online from the comfort of your desk or couch but what makes attending Build special is the interaction with the engineers working on Microsoft products like Azure, Office, Windows, Visual Studio and so much more. You also get to meet and share ideas with thousands of other developers from all over the world who have similar passions for building awesome software with Microsoft products.

This event sells out so be sure to register quickly. For more details about Microsoft Build visit the website at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/build

Enjoy!
