According to my countdown gadgets it's an amazing 14 days until Mix07 (and only 49 days until Tech Ed!) I'm really looking forward to the
conference conversation this year. Last year was an amazing event, very different from the other Tech Ed and PDC conferences that Microsoft hosts.
If you're not registered, it's too late as the event has long sold out. Everybody can keep track of things though through the www.visitmix.com web site. It sounds like they are going to get a bunch of conference info online in [near] real time.
I'm very much looking forward to the latest on the WPF, WPF/E, AJAX, and Media Center fronts. So far my must see list of sessions includes:
- "Family.Show": I See Dead People, with Windows Presentation Foundation: Scott Stanfield - Vertigo
- "ZAP!, WHAM!, KAPOW!": Windows Presentation Foundation and the Next Generation of Online Comic Book Reading: Nathan Dunlap - IdentityMine, Robby Ingebretsen - IdentityMine
