Two weeks ago we held our MIX conference in Las Vegas. MIX is my favorite conference of the year – since it nicely integrates development and design topics together in a single event, and is usually accompanied by some pretty cool product announcements.
I gave a first day MIX keynote again this year, and in it I talked about and announced a bunch of new Microsoft web development products. These included:
- ASP.NET MVC 1.0 (we shipped the final V1 release during MIX)
- Expression Web 3.0
- Microsoft Web Platform Installer and Windows Web App Gallery
- Silverlight 3
- Expression Blend 3
- IIS Media Services
- .NET RIA Services
My keynote also included a ton of demos and highlighted a bunch of great customers including: StackOverflow, NetFlix, NBC, Bondi Publishing, and KEXP.
Click here to watch the day one MIX keynote online. Bill Buxton led off the keynote with a great talk about user experience for 20 minutes – I then talked for an hour and 50 minutes after him.
I’ll be doing more in-depth blog posts in the days ahead on many of the technologies we introduced/announced and all the cool things you can do with them.
Hope this helps,
