The DirectX Developer Day will feature Microsoft's graphics engineering team who will answer questions in real-time during the live stream. The online-only event's announcement comes after the software giant recently said it would no longer attend this year's Game Developers Conference due to coronavirus concerns. Microsoft says:
"GDC may have been postponed, but we aren’t going to let that prevent us from bringing the next generation of graphics innovation to the world...The Microsoft DirectX team, along with partners from AMD and NVIDIA, will be streaming a series of talks covering how we’re pushing gaming graphics into the future, introducing exciting new features, showing never-before-seen demos, and doing a deep dive into both PIX and our shader compiler."
The event will commence at 10:00 AM PDT. It's part of a series of online events planned for this week, with a focus on Microsoft's new game technologies for developers, new features, and demonstrations, among others. Kicking off these activities is Game Stack Live, which starts today and goes on till tomorrow. The event is available for live stream via Game Stack's Mixer channel. The event will highlight the latest cloud and game development technologies, include panel discussions led by industry leaders, and more.
