Microsoft Build, the company's annual developer conference, begins on Monday in Seattle. The event lasts for three days and gives Microsoft an opportunity to meet face-to-face with its developer community and outline its vision for the future. Expect to hear a lot of buzzwords: Artificial intelligence! Mixed reality! Edge computing!
Satya Nadella, Microsoft's CEO, will take the stage at 8:30 am PT on Monday, May 6 for the opening keynote. He'll be followed by other Microsoft executives, who will lay out the future of each of Microsoft's platforms. You can watch a livestream of the whole thing here or in the player below.
In recent years, Microsoft has refashioned itself as an AI-focused company —so expect to see the latest fruits of its machined labor. We're also likely to hear updates about Azure, Microsoft's cloud computing service, and the new vision for Windows. For a full conference agenda, check out Microsoft's website.

Not only that it has changed, but that Microsoft has evolved its strategy during a time when some of its top competitors are selling you on software that locks you in—platforms that are so closed that “AOL will feel like a very open world compared to the kind of worlds that both Android and iOS have built,” Nadella says.
