There is always something sad about the last day of a conference. The sight of attendees with suitcases in the hallways, the noise of (de-)construction outside the session rooms during the talks and the overall fatigue after several conference days (not to mention the attendee party).
But the last day of MIX11 turned out to be great with high-quality talks that made me forget my “last day blues”.
Session: The Future of HTML5
The third session of the UX lightning series, and again a winner.
- What Software can Learn from the World of Magic
- Extending the Human DNA with Design
- What Brains, Football and Hobbits teach us about Designer & Developer
- Farming for Ideas: How to Be The Most Creative You
Thought-proviking and funny. Needless to say the room was packed.
Session: Advanced Features in Silverlight 5
The last session of MIX11 and a great way to end a conference. Unfortunately many of the features shown are not in the beta bits, but nevertheless I’m excited about what’s coming to Silverlight. I really liked the presentation style which showed good preparation.
