New sessions have just been announced for MIX09. Some of the ones I find most interesting are:
- Building Microsoft Silverlight Applications with Eclipse
Come learn about plug-in support in Silverlight 2, and how to build a typical Silverlight-based application using the Silverlight tools for Eclipse.
- Deep Dive into Microsoft Silverlight Graphics
Come hear about the Silverlight 3 rendering pipeline, and learn how to enhance your application experience with the latest additions to the Silverlight graphics APIs.
- Going Inside Microsoft Silverlight: Exploring the Core CLR
See how the CLR team slimmed down the size of the runtime into a small, zippy download, the Core CLR, yet kept the experience .NET developers have come to love.
- Live Framework and Mesh Services: Live Services for Developers
Learn about the Live Framework including new and future services (such as Mesh Services), protocols, APIs, and tools which enable your Web, service, or client applications to access, store, and synchronize user data with Live Services, obtain audience analytics data, and more.
- Mesh-Enabled Web Applications
Come learn how to extend your existing Web applications and get them to live and breathe within Live Mesh. See how Mesh-enabled Web applications can be accessed from anywhere through a Web browser as well as run locally (and offline) on a user's desktop. Also see how Web applications can take full advantage of value-add Mesh services such as a dedicated sandbox, online and offline synchronized storage, automatic application updates, identity, application catalog, social computing, and more.
In other MIX news... The great Robert Hess, Cocktail Master and Demo Guru, chats about the scenes behind the scenes of putting on a conference like MIX. Interesting indeed. Much work goes into pulling off an event like MIX.
