Gerardo Dada points out a new Microsoft event taking place in Las Vegas, MIX 06:

"Microsoft is organizing a new event called MIX 06 in Las Vegas on March 20-22nd, 2006. A lot of things are going on the web including new business models, new technologies and a logical evolution that people are calling Web 2.0. If you work on this space this is the time to learn about the new stuff. This is the first time (at least in the last few years) that Microsoft has created such an important event focused on web developers and web designers. More details will be available at the site below soon, but I can tell you it is going to be fantastic. We are investing a lot of resources to make sure this is THE Web event for 2006. Attendance will be limited - I am sure it will be sold out very quickly so grab your spot!

Why this is such a cool event:

  • A 72-hour conversation between developers, designers and business professionals to explore high-fidelity commerce, content, media, services and security How new technologies can help find, retain and up-sell customers
  • The latest on IE7, Windows Vista, Windows Media Center & Xbox 360, InfoCard, Windows Presentation Foundation, the Atlas AJAX framework and Windows Live!
  • Keynotes, presentations, discussions, labs "
