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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
