I’m going to Mix07 in a few weeks. I’m looking forward to this conference, I heard good things about last years event. I’m going as an attendee only. I’m not on the speaker roster. I have a number of unofficial functions to attend. Should be a good time.
The new name for WPFe (update: new name is Sliverlight) will be announced at the conference. I’m hoping for something with flair, a name both elegant and evocative. Come on Microsoft, let’s drop the boring names please! You won’t catch the attention of the artistic community with a name like Microsoft Web Graphics Engine 2007 – Professional’
Rumors are starting to fly about other earth shaking announcements during the Mix07 week.
Ryan Stewart says Big Rumors for Mix
But recently, I’ve been getting rumors of bigger and bigger news coming out of MIX. It’s nothing I have concrete enough to talk about, but I’ve gotten bits of information from multiple sources that Microsoft is planning to make some fairly significant announcements.
What could it be? A better AJAX? Some new development tools for WPFe? Adding support for Linux browsers? 3D support? Microsoft is buying Adobe?
Why not come to Mix07 and find out for yourself?
