Another March, another MIX. For the fifth year running now, Microsoft has chosen to put on a conference aimed less at software development, per se, and more at the products, experiences and designs that software development can generate. In all four prior MIX events, the focus of the show, its keynotes and breakout sessions has been on Web products. On day 1 of MIX 2010 that focus shifted to Windows Phone 7 Series (WP7). What little we had seen of WP7 had been shown to us in a keynote presentation, ...
There were a lot of announcements made during the keynote at MIX10 today, most notable were the releases of Silverlight 4 RC, Silverlight 4 Tools for Visual Studio 2010, Expression Blend 4 Beta and the Windows Phone 7 Developer Tools.

Attention Windows Mobile developers:

It has been confirmed by Microsoft Corp. that Windows Phone 7 devices will not run applications written for the Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system or earlier.

I think this is significant enough news that may need your planning for your software future releases re-thought.

The announcement was found here.

Today at the Unversity of Washington, Steve Ballmer gave a speech on Microsoft’s cloud strategy. Significantly, Azure was only briefly mentioned and was not shown. Instead, Ballmer spoke about what he called the five “dimensions” of the cloud, and used that as the basis for an almost philosophical discussion. Ballmer opined on how the cloud should be distinguished from the Internet.as well as what the cloud will and should enable. Ballmer worked hard to portray the cloud not as a challenger to Windows ...

You can just attend the developer days or mix it up with the IT Pro days. It is entirely up to you. I will be doing my bit delivering sessions on Azure, Entity ...
Today’s briefing by Microsoft on their re-booted mobile platform and strategy was very impressive. The prototype hardware they showed looked great and the UI was attractive, productive and unique; it was not an iPhone knock off. Microsoft seemingly brought to bear what it should have long ago: all the cool technologies and properties it already has. Zune, Office with OneNote, Outlook and Exchange, SharePoint, Xbox, Bing Search and Bing Maps all look to be represented and integrated elegantly, rather ...
I hope Stevie Wonder (Steve Ballmer) of MSFT was right when he proclaimed that 7 was a luck number for MSFT. It better be, 'cause I am already loving the Windows 7 experience and some more WinMo oops now WinPho (I coined that term remember that :)) won't hurt either. Microsoft has covered all the nook and crannies of the interface in a video on MSDN. What MSFT has managed to achieve here was totally unexpected from the Redmond. A complete revamp of the platform. They've thrown all crap out of the ...
