Last week Gill Cleeren and I presented the MSDN live meeting “MIX 2010 Announcements Update”, where we talked about the main MIX announcements and shared resources. You can find the session video recording as well as the slides below. To make it easy I’m listing the main resources discussed in the session here:
Windows Phone 7 event in Belgium – May 31
As I mentioned during the session, we are organizing the first Belgian Windows Phone 7 Developer Hub on May 31st, at Living Tomorrow in Vilvoorde. It will be a half day event presented by both local and Microsoft corp speakers, giving a full overview of how to develop applications for Windows Phone 7 using Silverlight and XNA. Free event but seating is limited so don’t forget to register in time.
Recurring MSDN Live meeting events – your feedback is welcome. Every two to three months, Gill and I will be presenting these types of updates around Web development technologies. Don’t hesitate to let Gill or me know what you would like to see during these events. Do you prefer overview sessions bringing you up to speed with the latest announcements or do you prefer less topics but more in-depth on a certain item? Feedback is welcome.

As you might have noticed, support for running PHP on Windows is growing stronger. With the enhancements in FastCGI for Internet Information Services for hosting PHP, the OData SDK for PHP, but also the recent announcement of the SQL Server Driver for PHP 2.0 with PDO support, there is quite some work being done. Something you might be interested in to familiarize yourself with the topic of PHP on Windows is the Training Kit available for download, which has also been updated to include support for Windows 7.
As I blogged some time ago, the PHP on Windows Training kit offers hands-on labs and demos on running and developing PHP on Windows (PHP configuration with IIS, PHP & SQL Server, etc).
