MIX 08 - Postscript

I'm home. And, it feels good. A day of decompression, no technology, and clean air (I hate walking through Vegas casinos).

After thinking about and digesting what technologies I saw, the web is going to be a much different place by this time next year. With services in the cloud, especially data storage, and the ease of building stunning client and browser apps with Silverlight, I am glad I am along for the ride. I can't wait to get started.

Will I go to Mix 09? I honestly don't know. It was an experience and I'm glad I went this time. However now that all the sessions are available online, is there really a need? We'll see.

On to Silverlight!

About the author

James James is a five time and current Microsoft MVP in Client App Development, a Telerik Insider, a past Director on the INETA North America Board, a husband and dad, and has been developing software since the early days of Laser Discs and HyperCard stacks. As the Founder and President of the Inland Empire .NET User's Group, he has fondly watched it grow from a twice-a-month, early Saturday morning group of five in 2003, to a robust and rambunctious gathering of all types and sizes of .NET developers.

James loves to dig deep into the latest cutting edge technologies - sometimes with spectacular disasters - and spread the word about the latest and greatest bits, getting people excited about developing web sites and applications on the .NET platform, and using the best tools for the job. He tries to blog as often as he can, but usually gets distracted by EF, LINQ, MVC, ASP, SQL, XML, and most other types of acronyms. To keep calm James plays a mean Djembe and tries to practice his violin. You can follow him on twitter at @latringo.

And as usual, the comments, suggestions, writings and rants are my own, and really shouldn't reflect the opinions of my employer. That is, unless it really does.
