Next Up: MIX 2008 in Las Vegas

blings_9_25_c  The Vancouver stop of the Heroes Happen Here Launch is complete (it was a great success!) and I am en route to Las Vegas for MIX08.  MIX is our big event for web developers, designers and anyone interested in the future of the web.  I was there last year and it was a great event.  The most notable difference from other events is the palpable "industry / non-MSFT" feeling to the event.   Think about all the great things of a PDC / Teched type event combined with the cool factor of a Web 2.0 conference. 

My team and I are down for a variety of reasons.  We will be doing a lot of press, meeting with several analysts in attendance, hosting key customers and of course soaking in all the announcements.

Nothing is completely official, but we anticipate that we will hear big things about:

  • Silverlight
  • IE8
  • Expression
  • IIS
  • Windows Live / cloud strategy

The entire event is held at the Venetian Hotel - so we likely won't get much sleep either.  ;-)

Watch for full coverage this week.  I will post as often as I can (as will the rest of the team)
