Played the way through to level 1-16 using IE9 and now it says to download Chrome. Very annoying, but at least know I can get some work done
Now there's an idea. Tap the side of nose. Kinect picks up the gesture and encrypts the screen you are working on to prevent nosey co-workers from prying into your work. I like it
The second biggest news story of the day.
Good luck to ScottGu. I liked how he did things and the stuff built under him has been a great boost to my job. Hopefully the good will continue under new leadership.
Does any of this affect Channel 9?
There are many fundamental new frameworks coming,
the ''C++ Renaissance' is not a joke, there will be a whole new world for native code developments, ranging from UI framwork to low level runtime architecture.
But do those need a new Visual Studio or could they not just be "new addons" like WP7 tools or MVC 3. VS2010 seems able to take new functionality without a full blown release.
Is there a need for a major Visual Studio release. Silverlight, MVC3 and WP7 have plugged new functionality into VS 2010 fairly well. HTML 5 tooling should probably plug in easily too.
I'd guess on their being a VS2012, maybe to tie in with the next SQL Server release (as the current tooling is VS2008 based).
Personally, I'd like to see more indvidual rolling releases like MV3 or WP7 tools, than have a whole new product released, but I'd guess that new "products" keep the MSDN subscription revenues rolling in.
I'll second that.
I appreciate all the time and effort put in to give a wonderful remote MIX experience. As with all things there were a few bumps along the way, but the response to issues was great.
Looking forward to spending a weekend watching sessions and learning some of the new stuff.
A wish for next year, a way to view the sessions/keynotes from my XBox on my HD TV would be great (without having to download and media share).
Thanks to Channel 9 and the rest for a great conference.
Caught up with the last hour of the 2nd keynote. Very impressed with what was shown. This should have been the day 1 Keynote. Obviously more Silverlight developers at MIX than HTML 5 developers judging by the audience reactions. ScottGu and the Channel 9 team know how to present to developers.
Had a great streaming experience today, mind you work's line speed probably helped.
Looking forward to watching sessions now.
Had a much better streaming experience today. Sadly, I was late to the party and was playing catchup. So when the live keynote finished, the feed switched to Channel 9 live. Guess i'm going to have to wait for the new link before I can finish what was a much better keynote( content wise) than yesterdays.
I kinda fancy it for replacing the delete button. Reach out to grab a file/email and then throw it over your monitor as if throwing it into a bin. Would give me a lot more pleasure when deleting spam emails and the like
@jeffsand: I appreciate all the effort you guys are putting into making this a great experience for us "remote" keynote attendees.
It's so great to see the keynote almost straight after its finished (live kinda clashes with my journey home after work), that a little bit of buffering doesn't put me off to much.
Thanks guys for the hardwork and I'm really looking forward to todays keynote.
