MIX07 registration open

Registration for Microsoft's MIX07 conference, to be held this year at the Venetian in Las Vegas, opened today. The MIX conferences are designed to bring together developers, designers, and business people working with Microsoft web technologies (such as ASP.NET, Expressions Studio, WPF/E, IIS, etc.). This year's event is claiming to present the "next Web now", with keynotes from Ray Ozzie and Scott Gutherie already announced. There will eventually be over 50 sessions at this three day event; you can check out 28 of them now on the online schedule. Some of the interesting developer sessions include:

  • First Look at the Future of IE - they're going to address the future of the browser and layout issues they're working on
  • How to Make AJAX Applications Scream on the Client - optimization talk
  • LINQing Your Web Applications - another conference presentation on LINQ plus previews of Orcas and .Net Framework Next
  • Implementing Rich UI for Web Applications - one of about five WPF/E presentations scheduled so far

Register today and save yourself a couple hundred greenbacks (that's at least 20 cups of Starbucks) and maybe I'll see you there in April.
