This week I’ll be traveling to Mexico City to meet developers and designers at the local MIX Essentials (English translation here – funny that RIA gets translated to LAUGHS) event. I’ll be presenting two sessions there this week. I was fortunate enough to be asked to kick-off the conference talking about building RIAs with Silverlight 2. I’m particularly excited about this as I have some things to show that haven’t really been shown broadly yet. I will also be speaking on working with data in Silverlight 2 later in the day. This session will cover working with services, servers, sockets and LINQ as a part of Silverlight development.
I hope that all those near Mexico City and around will be able to join us at this event. If you are planning on being there, I look forward to meeting you and getting feedback on Silverlight as well as seeing what really interesting things are being developed in Mexico. See you soon!
Je viens en Belgique pour MIX!
In one of my previous posts I made reference to the MIX Essentials event happening in Belgium later this month (24 APR). Well, it turns out that I will be there! I'll be speaking on Silverlight 2 and creating rich applications and am joining the company of Gil Cleeren and Catherine Heller...oh yeah and Ballmer (I tried to catch a ride with him, but couldn't cash in my frequent flyer miles). My session will provide an overview of everything new in Silverlight 2 and how you can start building your applications using it today. I'm hoping you all that will be attending will bring some great questions and not throw anything at me (unless it is euros, those are fine).
I've only had one other trip to Europe ever (to Italy) and am looking forward to going to Belgium. Everything I know about Belgium is from a recent show on Food TV, so I'm looking forward to some education :-)! So I'm taking some travel tips from Scott Hanselman and getting things in order (already have the monster cable thanks to my peep Jason Mauer and I, too, highly recommend that one). I look forward to seeing you there!
