One of the most awaited events for developers this year, Microsoft Build 2023, will go live on May 23, and in this guide, we will show you how to watch it and what to expect!

Microsoft launched Bing chatbot in February, and the company has been rolling out AI-powered features without stopping. From Azure integrations to Microsoft 365 Copilot, it looks like the tradition will continue for the remainder of this year. You will probably hear the word "AI" many times during Microsoft Build 2023, but before that, you need to know how to watch it.

How to watch Microsoft Build 2023?

Microsoft Build 2023 will be streamed live on Microsoft Developer's official YouTube channel. You can watch it live here. It will start on May 23 at 11:30 a.m. ET. Microsoft's CEO Satya Nadella will take the stage and make the opening speech for 30 minutes. Apart from Nadella, there will be 19 more speakers, including some of the important names like OpenAI's Co-founder and president, Greg Brockman, and Microsoft's corporate vice president, head of product, and developer division, Amanda Silver.

You can also check out the official webpage of Microsoft Build 2023 and register for the event. The event will take place between May 23-25, but the live stream will only cover the first two days. For an exclusive 3-day experience, you need to buy a ticket and be there in person.

After some time, this year's Microsoft Build event will finally accept the audience, and it will be held at Seattle Convention Center. The tickets are priced at $1,525, excluding the flight, accommodation, and all the other expenses, which means that you will have to spend way more than that. 

If you want to watch the event from your computer, check out the starting times in different parts of the world:

  • New York: 11:30 a.m.
  • Los Angeles: 8:30 a.m.
  • Mexico City: 9:30 a.m.
  • London: 4:30 p.m.
  • Madrid: 5:30 p.m.
  • New Delhi: 9:00 p.m.
  • Tokyo: 12:30 a.m. (May 24)
  • Sydney: 1:30 a.m. (May 24)

Well, it wouldn't be a surprise if Microsoft surpasses Google's "AI" record of using the word over 140 times throughout the I/O 2023 event. Microsoft has been actively investing billions of dollars in OpenAI, and the company is one of the leaders in the field.

The biggest expectation is that Microsoft will announce more AI-powered solutions to make developers' lives easier. It looks like the company's main focus, at least for the next couple of years, will be artificial intelligence and how to make life easier with distinct features.

This year's Microsoft Build event will feature names like OpenAI's co-founder Greg Brockman, AI researcher Andrej Karpathy, and Microsoft's CTO EVP of AI, Kevin Scott. Prepare for an AI-heavy event!

    Are these articles AI generated?

    Now the duplicates are more obvious.

    1. boris said on March 19, 2023 at 11:48 pm

      This is below AI generated crap. It is copy of Microsoft Help website article without any relevant supporting text. Anyway you can find this information on many pages.

  2. Paul(us) said on March 20, 2023 at 1:32 am

    Yes, but why post the exact same article under a different title twice on the same day (19 march 2023), by two different writers?
    1.) Excel Keyboard Shortcuts by Trevor Monteiro.
    2.) 70+ Excel Keyboard Shortcuts for Windows by Priyanka Monteiro

    Why oh why?

    1. Clairvaux said on September 6, 2023 at 11:30 am

      Yeah. Tell me more about “Priyanka Monteiro”. I’m dying to know. Indian-Portuguese bot ?

  3. John G. said on August 18, 2023 at 4:36 pm

    Probably they will announce that the taskbar will be placed at top, right or left, at your will.

    Special event by they is a special crap for us.

  4. yanta said on August 18, 2023 at 11:59 pm

    If it’s Microsoft, don’t buy it.
    Better brands at better prices elsewhere.

  5. John G. said on August 20, 2023 at 4:22 am

    All new articles have zero count comments. :S

  6. Anonymous said on September 5, 2023 at 7:48 am

    WTF? So, If I add one photo to 5 albums, will it count 5x on my storage?
    It does not make any sense… on google photos, we can add photo to multiple albums, and it does not generate any additional space usage

    I have O365 until end of this year, mostly for onedrive and probably will jump into google one

  7. St Albans Digital Printing Inc said on September 5, 2023 at 11:53 am

    Photo storage must be kept free because customers chose gadgets just for photos and photos only.

  8. Anonymous said on September 5, 2023 at 12:47 pm

    What a nonsense. Does it mean that albums are de facto folders with copies of our pictures?

    1. GG said on September 6, 2023 at 8:24 am

      Sounds exactly like the poor coding Microsoft is known for in non-critical areas i.e. non Windows Core/Office Core.

      I imagine a manager gave an employee the task to create the album feature with hardly any time so they just copied the folder feature with some cosmetic changes.

      And now that they discovered what poor management results in do they go back and do the album feature properly?

      Nope, just charge the customer twice.

      Sounds like a go-getter that needs to be promoted for increasing sales and managing underlings “efficiently”, said the next layer of middle management.

    When will those comments get fixed? Was every editor here replaced by AI and no one even works on this site?

    Instead of a software company, Microsoft is now a fraud company.

  11. ard said on September 7, 2023 at 4:59 pm

    For me this is proof that Microsoft has a back-door option into all accounts in their cloud.
    quote “…… as the MSA key allowed the hacker group access to virtually any cloud account at Microsoft…..”

    so this MSA key which is available to MS officers can give access to all accounts in MS cloud.This is the backdoor that MS has into the cloud accounts. Lucky I never got any relevant files of mine in their (MS) cloud.

  12. Andy Prough said on September 7, 2023 at 6:52 pm

    >”Now You: what is your theory?”

    That someone handed an employee a briefcase full of cash and the employee allowed them access to all their accounts and systems.

    Anything that requires 5-10 different coincidences to happen is highly unlikely. Occam’s razor.

  13. TelV said on September 8, 2023 at 12:04 pm

    Good reason to never login to your precious machine with a Microsoft a/c a.k.a. as the cloud.

    The GAFAM are always very careless about our software automatically sending to them telemetry and crash dumps in our backs. It’s a reminder not to send them anything when it’s possible to opt out, and not to opt in, considering what they may contain. And there is irony in this carelessness biting them back, even if in that case they show that they are much more cautious when it’s their own data that is at stake.
