After Facebook and Google have already canceled their developer conferences, Microsoft has now also followed and will transform its "Microsoft Build" into a completely digital event. There will be more details in the next few days. Only Apple is still holding on to its own developer conference WWDC in June 2020.
Microsoft has canceled the company's largest event in Seattle this year. Between the 19th and the 21st of Mail 2020 the Microsoft Build should actually be used for numerous announcements. Consumers were also mostly provided with innovations here. In order to ensure the safety and health of the developers, the corona virus has now been decided not to host the event in Seattle. Microsoft is already working on an alternative.
According to this, Microsoft Build should go digitally this year. The organizers would like to share how the whole thing will look in the coming days and weeks. Microsoft introduced Minecraft AR to the public for the first time last year. Facebook (F8) and Google (I / O) also canceled their developer events some time ago. Only Apple has not yet commented on the current situation around the WWDC in June 2020.
