PDC is great, its a lot of fun, and very interesting to see all of the new technologies that are coming out. But as a Web Developer/Designer/Community/Experience guy, I only really get into about 60% of the content, and then end up really using about 30% of the content on average. But when I heard about the MIX06 conference I was all ears.
MIX06 is a web conference about web technologies, business, practices and trends. Covering all of the great web technologies coming form Microsoft, presented not by the product team developing the technology, but rather by someone who is using the technology. This is going to be a good conference and I’m really looking forward to it. And heck its in Vegas.
Get the latest news on MIX06 from their blog, and if you are so inclined, add some mix flair to your site using the script below. The script renders a random mix 100px wide, 85px high image that links to the MIX06 site (viewable on my page to the right).
