We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.
The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.
The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.
On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.
So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.
There are a number of folks who are asking questions about the order invitations.
We are inviting developers to purchase in waves, as soon as devices are available. If you have applied, check for an email from us, indicating the status of your application. If your application is approved, a wave number will be provided within this status email. Each wave will ship over a period of two to three months. Timing may vary. When your wave is being served and your device is ready, we will send an email invitation to order. To secure your device, please order within a week of receiving your invitation to purchase. If you miss this window, you are still approved and can purchase, subject to device availability.
Please keep in mind, each wave will ship over a period of two to three months. Most folks who will be part of Wave 1 have not yet received their invitations to order, so do not panic.
If you have received an invitation for the current wave and are worried that you have missed an invitation to order, you can always contact us for status using the form at: https://33581registration.azurewebsites.net/registration.aspx
