My Life As A Blog

Full time round-up

with one comment

The second and final day of Mix ’07 UK has come to an end.  I started today with a double helping of Visual Studio 2008 and ASP .NET 3.5.  These Scott Guthrie sessions were right on the mark: well-paced and full of content.  The highlights for me are the ability in Visual Studio 2008 to target different versions of the .NET framework and LINQ.

After such a good start, the next session was likely to be a disappointment and it was.  After lunch, however, things looked up again.  The session on IronPython and Silverlight was interesting, although I felt it could have been improved by focussing more on IronPython and the DLR and less on Silverlight – which received adequate coverage elsewhere.

The day was rounded off with Swaggily Fortunes – in which a lot of lucky punters won Microsoft branded socks – and Sneak Peeks – a look at some of the stuff that’s heading our way accompanied by the sound of a large audience playing bamboo recorders.  These sessions were a good way to end the conference.

All in all, two days well spent.  For those of you who couldn’t attend or who would appreciate a helpful prod to the memory banks, the slides and some videos should be up on the Mix website over the next week or so.
