February is starting off good! I am going to MIX09 in March – thanks to Lynn Langit; who is now not just SocalDevgal but is also nicknamed MixDiva. I’m already excited about the Silverlight 3 announcement and the Silverlight sessions. And who knows – I may get a chance to network with some Silverlight and UX Pro’s? Just to mention, I am one of the 10 readers Adam Kinney was talking about in his Silverlight 3 blog entry; however I am not sure if he knows that and actually will say hi? Well, will see.
Building Microsoft Silverlight Applications with Eclipse – Shawn Wildermuth. A few weeks ago, I played with the Eclipse Silverlight plugin; so I am really looking forward to this one!
The Future of Microsoft Expression Blend – Douglas Olson
What’s New in Microsoft Silverlight 3 – Joe Stegman
What’s New in Microsoft Silverlight 3 Media – Larry Olson
Integrating Microsoft Expression Blend with Adobe Creative Suite – Joanna Mason
Go Beyond Best Practices: Evolving Next Practices to Prosper in the 21st Century – Lewis Carbone
Escaping Flatland in Application Design: Visualizing Data – Peter Eckert, Eric Gould Bear
Building Accessible RIAs in Microsoft Silverlight – Reed Shaffner, Chris Auld. Lately I am trying to get some insight into Web Accesibility and having an accesibility + silverlight combo presentation sounds fantastic.
There is also a section called SHOWOFF, which gives you the chance to share bits and pieces about your uber-cool projects with a video. You can find more details under the Mixtify tab on the MIX09’s website.
I feel that the MIX Conference is so much different from many big geek events. The overall concept seems to be more colorful, inspirational and crazy creative! Probably bringing developers and designers together makes it so devign (=divine).
If you register until February 13th, you can save $400 or try to look out for some geeky angels without wings!
