Microsoft has officially confirmed that it will no longer hold its annual Mix conference for designers and developers. Instead, the company said it will hold another development conference which will focus on Windows 8 and Visual Studio 2012. The company did not give any indication of when or where the conference would take place or what it would be called.
However, the company did say the new conference would be similar to the BUILD event held last fall. “As we look ahead to 2012 and beyond, the goal is to ensure that global Microsoft developer events are of the caliber that many of you experienced at BUILD last September,” blogged Microsoft’s Tim O’Brien.
