MIX Online, The Next ChapterOct 21, 2008 In News By Thomas Lewis
You probably noticed the site looks a little different today than the last time you visited.
MIX Online has been a community site for web designers and developers who believe that the web is a great place for innovation. In the past, the site has given you a varied perspective of what is happening on the web, a view into our conference called MIX, and interviews with amazing people with incredible ideas and stories on how you can take advantage of the web.
But we were not content with resting there. We began thinking about how we could make MIX Online even better based on your feedback, audiences at our sister event, and people who have never even heard of MIX. We wanted to continue to be practical, conversational, innovative, unexpected and open.
Our site will continue as a community site for web designers and developers who build and believe that the web is a great place for innovation.
Here are some of the changes we have made based on your feedback:
- We will take more of a scenario focus around emerging web trends. For example, Microformats is an interesting movement in the web community and we want to introduce you to it and give you some practical guidance around it.
- We will continue to have our traditional blog, but we are renaming it under the heading "Opinions" that provides a more natural conversation with our small team.
- We will provide practical articles with each scenario we cover that are written by people in the community, not always Microsoft’s perspective.
- We are providing freely downloadable,open source,and immediately useable prototypes. We not only encourage you to use these prototypes for your own projects, but to also submit code to the prototype project on CodePlex.
We have a sister conference called MIX. We hope you have the opportunity to attend and continue to engage with us before, during and after the event.
Please take the opportunity to visit, give us your feedback and ideas, download prototypes, subscribe, and most of all: keep talking to us, we are listening.
