Although this years Melbourne REMIX at the Town Hall was not the same 2-day extravaganza held at Crown Casino last year, it was still a very well organised day with great content showcasing some of Australia's talent.
I've been getting into Silverlight a bit more since the beta 1 release and like most other .NET developers have been pretty excited about the future possibilities. I had already consumed a lot of content from the LasVegas MIX so wasn't really expecting too much other than to pick up some tips &tricks and check out some cool demos, which there were plenty of.
The highlights for me ...
Keynote presentation in particular Mark Pesce's presentation on the power of communication and how it is evolving through technology, and the glimpse at ABC's silverlight based video content website.
Jose Fajardo's mini presentation on possibilities with Deep Zoom - very inspiring.
all the single slide Deep Zoom presentations - in particular the ABC/Hydro presentation - a much more interesting way to do a presentation rather than to flick through some slides ... I'm expecting this to become much more common in the future
learning about the new features provided in IIS7
getting a full copy of Expression Studio 2 :-)
and course, the networking drinks at the Longroom Bar.
Looking forward to next year already.
