Finally, the curtains are closed for the two excellent tech conferences, leaving us buzzing with excitement and a wealth of knowledge.

Yes! We were at the highly anticipated tech conferences Microsoft Build & Gartner Application Innovation & Business Solutions Summit in May 2023.

Let’s quickly dive into the key highlights and takeaways from the conferences.

Highlights from Microsoft Build 2023

MSBuild, Microsoft's annual developer conference, made its highly anticipated return as a hybrid event, combining both in-person and online experiences.

Held in Seattle, USA, from May 23-25, 2023, the conference kicked off with the opening keynote address from Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella revolving around the announcements primarily related to Artificial Intelligence (AI). Nadella highlights five significant announcements, including bringing Bing to ChatGPT, Windows Copilot, Copilot Stack, Azure AI Studio, and Microsoft Fabric.

Build 2023 was primarily focused on exploring the vast potential of AI. With 400+ sessions from prominent industry leaders, the conference served as an excellent platform to interact and engage with brilliant mindsets from the developer community.
