Well, I wish I was going to this event: ReMIX UK! For one, it would be starting the day of my birthday and would be a great birthday treat! Secondly, I would be able to meet up with my fellow escamoles chaps and maybe take in some local cuisine instead.
If you are in the UK, or for some reason really wanted to see the current value of the US dollar, make sure you head to ReMIX UK! The lineup is pretty incredible when you look at it…here’s some Microsoft favorites:
I also saw on the agenda for the 2 day event that Tim Sneath and Jesse Liberty were listed, so it should be even richer (pun intented) content. In addition it looks like some great stuff on the designer and creative strategy side of the business as well. I’m sure there will be enough Silverlight stuff there to keep you going as well as WPF, ASP.NET and others!
By the way, I listed Dr. Neil above as one of my Microsoft favorites. He’s actually one of our Regional Directors. If you have never met Dr. Neil…do so. He’s a great guy, very intelligent and fun to be around. Ask him about how he manages developer teams and the ‘check-in’ metaphor for people, not just code. Seriously, he would be a not miss either.
I wish I could travel across the pond for this one, but I’ll be hopefully approximately 25 meters under water in some area of Mexico celebrating with friends. Have fun though!
