Just a few days left before we kick off this year’s TechDays event in Antwerp. Time for a last update with very exciting news.
After last week’s MIX conference you probably have seen the announcements around Windows Phone 7 developer platform, Internet Explorer 9 preview and much more. Well, we have good news for you: some of the stuff from MIX is coming to you next week at TechDays.
We have no less than two sessions on Windows Phone 7 Series development:

On Wednesday March 31st we have the following sessions:
On April 1st you can join Scott Hanselman or Charlie Kindel:
Like previous years, the very active user community is also present at TechDays. This year we have foreseen a Community Lounge area in the expo, where you will be able to meet and talk to the different user groups and experts. Join a user group, talk to peers, be part of the community!
Good news, last month at MIX the Silverlight Analytics Framework (SAF) was released. It supports a range of analytics vendors including Google Analytics, Nedstat, Comscore and many more. This framework is ready to be used directly in Expression Blend with custom behaviors so you can add tracking without having to write any code. You can use the framework for normal Silverlight sites and applications but it also integrates with the Microsoft Silverlight Media Framework so you can track media usage.
Download and see more details at the framework’s homepage on CodePlex.
Also recommended: watch the MIX 2010 session on the framework presented by Michael Scherotter who has done a great job with this framework.
After reading Chris Pendleton’s post on a new feature for Bing Maps beta, I decided to try it out on my blog and give you all a mapping of Twitter posts containing the tag #mix10.
