I consider myself blessed to work for a company I believe in, and in a field that I love. Working in the field of web development is exciting. The job is never the same. The technology is always in flux. Tomorrow will be different than today. Bristol-Myers Squibb has treated me well. And they are doing it again. I am now scheduled to attend the Mix ’08 Conference at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas from March 5 through March 7.
Mix 07 was a fantastic conference, and Mix 08 looks to be just as great. Steve Ballmer and Scott Guthrie will be keynote speakers this year. The sessions look really interesting. I am hoping to attend the MVC session from Scott Hanselman, some of the Web 2.0 panels, some SharePoint sessions, .Net 3.5 demos, WPF and Silverlight sessions, and some of the UI discussions.
Last year I documented my trip with blog posts after each one of the sessions. I hope to do the same this year. I was criticized by some of my peers last year that my blog posts from each session didn’t really count as individual posts (we have a performance objective to post a specific number of blog entries per year) but as one giant post. We will see if my online trip report creates as much of a stir again.
I am really looking forward to Mix again this year. Take a look at the sessions, and let me know if there are any that interest you. I can try to attend, attend, and bring back as much information for you as I can.
