Intro to Tech Skills sessions at Microsoft Build 2022

Microsoft Build 2022 will be from May 24 to 26, and the event will be packed with a handful of informative discussions through “Intro to Tech Skills.” The sessions are specifically aimed at students and individuals hoping to learn new information about the latest technologies.

“From May 24 through May 26, Intro to Tech Skills sessions will give you the opportunity to learn about new technologies or areas of interest, figure out which ones are right for you, learn what to expect and how to get started,” says Microsoft in its blog post announcing the details of Intro to Tech Skills sessions. “You’ll get a better understanding of how developer technologies and tools work along with learning resources that can help you further your career in tech. And speaking of your career in tech, we have tips for you on that too!”

Generally, Intro to Tech Skills will be divided into 10. Each one will focus on certain topics that participants can choose to have. Nonetheless, there will also be other engaging student-centered activities aside from the main sessions, such as the “Minecraft time machine,” “AI match game,” and “Microsoft Cloud Skills Challenge.”
