Sign in to queue

Description

In the second part of this two-part interview, Scott discusses how this year's Mix (http://visitmix.com/2008/) is going to be even larger than last year's, covering everything from Windows Presentation Foundation improvements to Web development frameworks including Dynamic Data and the MVC Framework, to dropping some hints about upcoming tooling support, and the major improvements in Silverlight 2.0.

You'll also hear Scott talk about the different needs of developers and designers with Expression, how he personally wrote the <asp:Calendar> control, the unique challenges in building controls and how XAML enables unmatched control composability.

    There's some hints in there, but Scott was definitely guarded in his wording. Then again, if Scott had leaked something, I probably would have had to cut it Big Smile

    Hate to be a pain but any chance this video can be made smaller? I tried downloading the video but is a whopping (836MB).

    Or dare i say anychance it can be downloaded onto youTube Smiley I just can't seem to watch it or download it (and i really dont want to download just the sound)

    I think its very important to have the download size limited if you want to have a better reach, I can't imagine downloading an interview for 800+ MB, there should defintely be a way to reduce the file size to alteast 1/5 or 1/4th of its size. Off late I've been noticing that the file download size has quadrapled. Please fix this.

    I totally agree. I'm usually downloading videos for viewing them later on the train or bus etc, but when videos are this large, it just takes too long time! Any chance you'll fix this soon?

    Low Res version is now available, it's still 177MB unfortunately, but much smaller than the 800MB version.

    Yes, our goal is to get all sessions online again. Sometimes certain speakers don't allow us to post their sessions, but it's our goal.

    I thought about MVC for ASP.NET more than 3 years ago and even atart working on implementation as open source project:

    http://www.codeproject.com/KB/architecture/NWAF.aspx
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/nwaf/

    Happy to hear that finally they are working on it. three years ago he thought that MVC is not so good idea ...
