May 25-27: Build 2021 IoT related sessions

Microsoft Build 2021 is a virtual technology conference scheduled for May 25-27. Microsoft Build is designed mainly for developers who write and support applications for Microsoft Azure, Windows, SQL Server and other applications/software platforms from the company.

Because it’s an digital event (just like last year) registration is free.

Of course, there are also Internet of Things (IoT) related sessions.

Normally, most of these sessions (Except the RSVP ones where typically involve customer interaction) are recorded and available online for registered users. So, that is the second reason to register 🙂

Here is a list of what is scheduled right now regarding IoT:
