MIX 2011-End of day 2

Thursday, April 14, 2011

At the end of the second day, I went to the Build Fast Web Applications with Windows Azure AppFabric Caching session. The presentation was the standard presentation of AppFabric cache, only from the Windows Azure perspective. I was glad to hear that the release will be by the end of April, because I was waiting for the release in order to test it in our HPC/Azure integration samples. Updates on the release (mainly more sizes for the cache, and ability to use datacenters outside of the US):     ...

MIX 2011 – Day 2

As I suspected, the keynote of the second day was better and did include information about new releases of the Windows Phone 7 OS release, Silverlight 5 beta, and Kinect SDK for Windows. Since most of the new topics where covered in Gil Fink’s blog post, I’ll just add some photo’s to complete the picture: WP7 searchable jump list: Jaime Rodriguez enthusiastic with WP7: What’s new in Silverlight 5: ...

MIX 2011 Day 1–Sessions

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

After the keynote, I went to the HTML 5 for Silverlight developers session. It was nice to see how you can use the svg HTML element to create vector graphics in a similar way to the way you create it in Silverlight. At the end of the presentation, he started talking about Silverlight and HTML 5 in the eyes of the decision makers, but he didn’t say anything other than “just choose one and create a good application”. I expected something more profound; I was a bit disappointed. On my way to lunch,...

MIX 2011–Day 0

So day zero began with me flying from Israel to Las Vegas through Newark, where I missed my flight due to all the security checks. Luckily there was a flight leaving two hours later, so I was able to get to Las Vegas in a decent hour. Tomorrow starts day 1 of MIX, so I have to get up early (this post was written in 2am) to register. I would probably go this time to the Azure sessions, since it correlates with my current work on Windows Azure and Windows HPC Server (I’ll post...

To MIX or not to MIX (2011)

Thursday, March 24, 2011

This will be the first year I’m attending MIX in Las Vegas this coming April (12-14). Since most of my work is web-related, It’s only logical that eventually I would attend this conference to see what the future of the web will look like in the coming year. We’re going to have quite a large presence of Sela employees at the conference, very much like we had in the PDC conference in 2009. Since I tend to get bored when listening to lectures all day long, I would be happy to talk some of the day...
