Getting ready to fly to Vegas and MIX10 is really an exciting time! It is also a very busy time, because we are working on a few projects that will be shown on stage, I have my presentation to prepare, and of course as always the book… though these days it has been a bit on the back burner to be honest ;)
I arrive in Vegas on Sunday evening around 10PM, so I won’t be able to make it to the traditional IdentityMine dinner this year. I am sure it will be fun nonetheless!
My session: Understanding the MVVM pattern
My session is scheduled on the first day, which is awesome, so I am crossing my fingers and hoping that the MIX team doesn’t change it at the last minute… The session will take place on
Monday, the 15th of March, 2PM, Room Lagoon F
Important: remember that the USA are moving to Summer time on Sunday, so don’t forget to adjust your watches!!
Ask the Experts
On Monday evening, I will attend the Ask the Experts event, which is taking place between 5Pm and 6:30PM in the main meal hall. This will be a great occasion to grab a beer and talk about code.
MIX has a great place called the Commons, a great location to chill between sessions, and meet tons of interesting people. I love the Commons and plan to spend a lot of time there to meet as many people as I can.
I was invited to a few parties, and will do my best to avoid conflicts :) I plan to be at the following events:
- Silverlight Mixers on Monday evening
- Insiders MIX party on Tuesday
- Silverlight partner happy hour on Tuesday too
This is a lot of fun, but at the same time we all know that the best value of a conference is to meet people face to face. This is just the right occasion.
And on Thursday…
On Thursday I will be attending a Silverlight event at the Luxor. It will be a very busy day, perfect way to end the conference. I fly back home on Friday morning, but due to a long stop in Washington DC (where I intend to go downtown and take pictures… except if the weather is bad, in which case I will probably go to the museum of flight), I will reach home only on Sunday.
Getting hold of me
The best way to reach me during MIX is to send me a message on Twitter. I will regularly tweet my location at the conference, so make sure to come and meet me. I am eager to make new friends, to talk about the fantastic jobs we did in WPF and Silverlight over the past year and hear your war stories!
