Visual Studio Code at Build 2020
May 14, 2020 by Alessandro Segala, @ItalyPaleAle
The Microsoft Build 2020 conference is starting next Tuesday, May 19, and will be running for 48 continuous hours. For the first time, Build is a fully digital event, open to everyone for free.
Our team has been hard at work creating new experiences for all developers using Visual Studio Code. At Build, we'll demo new features we've been working on in VS Code (hint: Settings Sync!) as well as Notebooks, Remote Development, and a bunch of cool tips and tricks. You will also be able to check out what we've been working on with partner teams (Visual Studio Codespaces, Visual Studio Live Share) and together with our friends at GitHub.
In our sessions, you can learn how Visual Studio Code enables teams to remain productive and collaborate even when distributed.
Connect with live sessions
There are a number of great live sessions at Build, too many list here, but we think the following offerings will be interesting to developers using Visual Studio Code. All of these sessions are going to be live-streamed on the Microsoft Build website, and are repeated three times across three time zones. And, each session includes a live Q&A at the end.
All times shown below are in Pacific Time.
