Mix07 a 72 Hour Conversation

Wednesday, May 2, 2007

I’m in Las Vegas this week for the Mix07 conference. It is being billed as a 72 hour conversation but I’m learning that they want to sleep. It’s now 2:50 AM and there’s nobody left to converse with. I wonder if I should feel cheated…

What’s in store for the week? Well it looks like it’s going to be three days of learning about Silverlight. Silverlight is Microsoft’s answer to Flash. Why do they need an answer to Flash? Well, if you are as dedicated to Microsoft technologies as I am, you have spent a lot of time learning WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation). Why should I have to learn something else to make dynamic content for the web? Silverlight will enable you and I to use our knowledge of WPF for use in the web in a cross browser manner.

Okay, that sounded like a lot of hype, and maybe that’s all it is. We will see this week how things turn out. I’ll try to keep you updated on what’s going on.
