Interested users can sign up for the event using their Microsoft, LinkedIn or GitHub account. A special sign is also available for Microsoft Work or School accounts as well as Microsoft employees.

Once the sign-in is complete, visitors will have to fill an online form followed by a survey with some basic information to register for the event.

For those unaware, Microsoft Build is an annual developer's conference held by the tech major to provide insights on what the company is working on for the coming year. Through the conference, the company aims to make the developers aware of how to best frame their work around various Microsoft services.

As for what to expect from this year's conference, Microsoft is anticipated to introduce several changes to Windows at the event. The updates will come on the back of a rapid surge in remote work since last year.

Other than the keynote by Microsoft CEO, a day two keynote will also be held at this year's Microsoft Build conference. The second keynote will feature speakers like Scott Guthrie, Rajesh Jha, and Scott Hanselman and is likely to be more developer-focused.
