The first 100 visitors to get a 1 meter tower of their old books to the Sony store on Potsdamer Platz in Berlin on Thursday at 7pm will get it switched for a new Sony Reader PRS-T2.
Pretty cool… Sad it’s just going down in Berlin.
Corporate Vice President of Windows Mobile Program Management at Microsoft, Joe
Belfiore, will be speaking at MIX in March. Belfiore is responsible for
the overall design and product definition of the software that powers Windows
Phones. A huge consumer advocate, Belfiore has led the design and
development of some of Microsoft’s more consumer-friendly products, including
Zune, Windows Media Center, and the user experience for Windows itself.
Along with Belfiore’s keynote, eleven new Windows Phone
sessions have just been added to the MIX10 agenda.
Yes, at MIX10 you’ll learn about developing applications and games for the next generation of Windows Phone. Yes, we’ll have Phone sessions, and we can’t say more…yet. Stay tuned and check back often or join the MIX mailing list.
VERY nice! Thank you, Mix!
I just finished writing the currently 101 pages hands-on lab manual for our “Creating a line-of-business application using Silverlight 4 and the new .NET WCF RIA Services framework” lab coming up next week. Our two dates for the event, Thursday, January 14 and Friday, January 15 morning are already fully booked, so we opened a new, third date, Friday January 15 in the afternoon. Writing these labs is absolutely great, but a lot of work as we do it all from scratch. So seeing many participants signing up is really good. If you want to attend for free, visit http://msdn.microsoft.com/de-ch/aa570302.aspx?EventID=1032382649. It’s going to take place in Wallisellen.
Do you have a session idea and would like to present it at MIX10? We invite you
to submit your ideas on topics that explore design, web development or business
around building innovative web sites. While it is not required to address
Microsoft-specific technologies, entries should consider interoperability. Join
the dialogue and share your inspiration and expertise as we build The Next Web
I am very much looking forward to this conference that will be a huge thing for everybody doing web- and Windows phone development (as announced at the day 2 keynote of PDC2009 in Los Angeles).
This open call for content will add some interesting sessions to the Mix-session-mix, I am convinced!
