Telerik @ MIX09

Do you know what's happening this week? MIX09! And Telerik is here in full-force to participate in the fun. If you haven't been following the rumors leading-up to MIX, let me quickly catch you up on what's expected to be the big focus of the week in Vegas:

  1. First and foremost, everyone expects this to be the Silverlight 3.0 conference. Last year was the Silverlight 2.0 conference, so it only makes sense that MIX09 will be the follow-up performance. And when it comes to SL3, everyone seems to think H.264 support + improved LOB support will be the main focus.
  2. There is also some chatter that MIX09 will bring the official release of IE8. It's been sitting in Beta 2 for quite some time now, so MIX seems as good a place as any to finally release it.
  3. Finally, there is a bit of hope that MIX09 will bring more details about the plans for Azure. Microsoft introduced Azure in last year's OzzNote, so maybe he'll have an update this year.
As usual, I will try to bring you LIVE keynote coverage on Telerik Watch, so if you can't tune-in to the MIX video, keep your browsers locked here with finger over F5. I'll do my best bring you the hottest news from MIX in near real-time. Finally, if you're going to be at MIX09, too, we'd love to meet-up! Just drop me a line and we'll find a fun place in Vegas (are there any of those?) to meet and talk Telerik, Silverlight, and all things MIX. Stay tuned- much more MIX news to follow this week.
