The most important conference for .NET (web) developers of the year is coming up: MIX10, again in Las Vegas this year, from March 15th to 17th.
This is the first year I’m going, and I’m really looking forward to it (staying at the Mandalay Bay Hotel, as most of the attendees :-)). I’m pretty sure we’ll hear all about how Silverlight 4 / WCF RIA Services is coming along, but I’m even more excited about the Window Phone, especially since it’s now known we’ll be able to develop applications for Windows Mobile using Silverlight – absolutely one of the best decision Microsoft could make as far as I’m concerned. I, for one, am already looking forward to developing a few apps for the new Windows Phone :)
Next to that, I’m also looking forward to meeting a few people I’m following on Twitter – socializing is of course an integral part of a conference like MIX. ;-) If Wifi allows it, I’ll check my Twitter account regularly – feel free to send me a message if you want to go for a beer!
… and of course, as this will be the first time in Vegas for me, I’m pretty excited about experiencing what Sin City has to offer! ;-)
Only one thing I’m absolutely NOT looking forward to is the long, long travel time: a bit more than 20 hours from Belgium, to be exact. No fun at all for a smoker on a non-smoking airplane. One positive aspect though: if I find a power slot on the plane, I might be able to finish a few blog post drafts for the coming weeks :)
Anyway, excited to meet people, excited to be in Las Vegas, excited to attend MIX10! See you in Vegas?
