During the three-day Build 2022 conference, from May 24-26, Microsoft unveiled new tools and feature improvements for the developer community. The majority of these new capabilities focused on making it easier for developers to create native apps, migrate to Azure, create collaborative experiences in Teams, and increase app discoverability on the Microsoft Store.
Artificial intelligence (AI) and AI-assisted development took center stage at Build this year, with MLOps and AI continuing to positively impact workflows. Developers have a lot of options with Windows, including new hybrid AI app designs for new edge endpoints. These help keep developers more productive — providing innovation that will help automate that same sense of flow throughout organizations.
Here’s a rundown of what was announced:
- New availability on the.NET Multi-platform App UI, also known as.NET MAUI, which is now generally accessible, as well as cloud developer environments and DevSecOps.
- Azure Container Apps, a serverless container hosting service where developers can focus on apps rather than maintaining underlying cloud infrastructure, is one example of cloud-native apps that bring new levels of scale, performance, and dependability.
- The Microsoft Intelligent Data Platform is a new, integrated platform that integrates databases, analytics, and governance, allowing businesses to focus on producing value rather than integrating and managing a fragmented data estate.

- Microsoft Store Ads is a new solution that aims to help developers grow their businesses by putting their apps and games in front of the appropriate users at the right time. Developers will be able to construct ad campaigns for the Microsoft Store using Microsoft Advertising in the coming months as part of a test program.
- The new Live Share experience for apps in Teams, which takes screen sharing in meetings to the next level by including interactive elements into the Teams meeting stage. In Teams, developers may create Live Share apps that allow meeting attendees to edit, annotate, zoom in/out, and interact with shared information in new ways.
- The metaverse is generating a completely new feedback loop and business potential. Enabling metaverse experiences so that clients may more effectively model, automate, simulate, and predict changes in their industrial surroundings, feel more present in the new world of hybrid work, and develop custom immersive worlds to allow new chances for connection and exploration.
