Un-Mix and MEDC

MeAtMix07.pngI’m getting ready for a pair of conferences next week. Well not exactly. I’m officially attending Microsoft’s Mobile & Embedded Conference next week in Las Vegas. I’m particularly looking forward to the Robot competition that it has. Can’t miss the Robots.

I’m also going to un-attend Mix07. As I’ve blogged about before, I wasn’t fast enough to sign up for Mix07 this year. It sold out. I tried getting onto the waitlist, but I was bumped. Likewise, I tried to get a press pass, but I didn’t make the cut there either. But that hasn’t deterred me. I’m going. As you may know I’ve been focusing much of my UMPC and Tablet PC development efforts around some new Microsoft technologies in large part because I like the trend in languages–particularly XAML. With WPF and now Silverlight both supporting XAML markup, there are knew development models that’ll become practical. At least that’s my hope. We’ll have to see. That’s one reason I wanted to go to Mix.

But not getting into Mix07 doesn’t end my thirst for the latest trends in WPF and Silverlight. That wouldn’t be the startup spirit. Instead, I’m doing the next best thing–I’m going to be hanging out in the hallways at the conference and talk to whomever I can. I’ll broadcast at least some of it live via UStream.tv. More details later. It should be a blast.
