Microsoft Exchange Event Returns, Build 2012 on Wait-List Status

Microsoft revived and opened registration for its Exchange conference, while its Build 2012 developer conference got a quick sell out today.

Registration for the Microsoft Exchange Conference (MEC), revived after a 10-year lag, recently opened. Early-bird registration for MEC 2012 is already sold out, according to this registration page, but regular registration is still open at $2,000.

MEC 2012 will have sessions on Exchange 2013's architecture, security, compliance, e-discovery and archiving features, along with updates on the Office 365's Exchange Online service, according to this Microsoft blog post.

MEC 2012 is scheduled to take place on September 24 to 26 in Orlando, Fla.

Meanwhile, Microsoft's Build 2012 event for developers now offers a wait list shortly after opening for registration today. Build 2012 registration was highlighted in a few Microsoft blogs today, like this one, which lists pricing for "early bird" registrants. However, it looks like people had to respond within hours of the notice to get the early-bird discount or even be assured of attending.

This Build registration page now indicates there's a wait list at the full price of $2,095; early bird and academic pricing are sold out.

Build 2012 will be held this year on Microsoft's campus in Redmond, Wash., from October 30 to November 2.

Last year's Build event, which replaced Microsoft's long-running Professional Developers Conference, showcased the debut of Windows 8 and the new Windows Runtime, representing a huge change for Windows developers. At Build 2012, Microsoft will have panels on "Windows Azure, Windows Phone 8, Windows Server 2012, Visual Studio 2012 and Xbox," according to the blog post.
