Microsoft nixes MIX — no MIX conference in 2012

Microsoft has decided not to hold MIX — its spring conference for web developers and designers — this year.

Instead, the company will be merging MIX into its next major developer conference, “which we will host sometime in the coming year,” wrote Tim O’Brien, Microsoft general manager of developer & platform evangelism, wrote in a blog post on The Official Microsoft Blog.

O’Brien said the company came to that decision while thinking of how it wants to spend its time and resources this year.

The idea for MIX was conceived in 2005, O’Brien said. But now “the notion that the ‘web community’ is somehow separate and distinct from the community of developers we care about no longer makes any sense,” he wrote. “Secondly, we got a lot of feedback. Developers were confused, and asking us about which event to go to. Reporters, analysts and tech bloggers were trying to manage “event fatigue”, and asked us the same question.”

O’Brien did specify what Microsoft’s next developer event would be but said the company would share more details later this year.
