2020 Build Keynote

The Build Keynote from Satya Nadella was entitled empowering every developer,  on Tuesday 19 May. You can watch it here.

In this time of uncertainty, developers will play a central role in reimaging the world we live in and accelerating our path to recovery. The 3 phases he touched on emergency, recovery and reimaging. Going forward business will need to be able to remote everything at a moments notice, automate everywhere to be agile and simulate anything. The Power Platform, Azure Arc as the first control plane and Teams are enabling the future. Satya left us with a thought provoking statement.

"We are at an inflection point. As developers you have that opportunity, as well as a responsibility, to define what should be rebuilt, what should be reimaged, and what should be left behind." Satya Nadella

We are crossing into a new frontier, anywhere together.
