Getting ready for MIX08



My MIX08 countdown sidebar gadget says it: 7 days to go!

Just one week away I can’t wait to be at MIX08. So much coming, so little time!

After Scott Guthrie’s post about the new Silverlight 2 features, I’m hoping we all can get working on our Silverlight 2 applications. Scott gives a glimpse of what is expected but I’m sure much more will be shown at the keynote.

If you are planning to go I hope you have your ticket because since last week everything is sold out.
But, the good news if you are not able to join us in Las Vegas: the opening keynote will be streamed live on March 5th at 9:30 AM PST (that’s 5:30 PM in if you’re in Belgium). Add a reminder to your agenda and point your browser to to get all the news live. It will be a 2:30 hour session packed with the latest news on Microsoft’s web technologies and tools. I’m expecting quite a few announcements so the 2:30 hours will be time well spent.

The keynote will be kicked off by Microsoft Chief Software Architect Ray Ozzie, Vice President of the .NET Developer Platform Scott Guthrie and Internet Explorer General Manager Dean Hachamovitch. In addition to news on Silverlight 2 there will be Internet Explorer news, Expression, Windows Live, ASP.NET and more.

I’ve been preparing my personal schedule of the MIX sessions I want to attend. It’s hard to choose

In addition to all the sessions and keynote information I’m sure this will be a great opportunity to network and meet new people.
