ReMIX07 Boston – Monday-Tuesday, October 8-9, 2007

On the frontiers of the Web, boundaries are blurring—developers and designers, advertisers and publishers, software and services, media and technology, TV and PCs, PCs and mobile devices, producers and consumers. The old order is getting a little MIXed up.

MIX 07 took place in Las Vegas as a conversation between web designers, developers, and business decision makers. MIX showcased topics and solutions that bridge Microsoft and non-Microsoft perspectives, and emphasize the inclusive and participatory nature of the next web.

Whoever said that what happens in Vegas has to stay in Vegas? Due to the SOLD OUT status of MIX07 in May, Microsoft is serving up ‘ReMIX’ with a twist right here on the East Coast! ReMIX07 Boston will feature a keynote from Brad Abrams, who is the Group Product Manager for the .Net Framework Product Group, as well as multi-track sessions for designers and developers covering Silverlight, AJAX, Virtual Earth, .Net 3.0/3.5, Expression and Visual Studio.  You will also get to hear about Silverlight for Linux (a.k.a. "Moonlight") from Miguel de Icaza. 

There's a great line up of speakers coming to ReMIX, including: Molly Holzschlag, Lou Carbone, Fritz Onion, Rocky Lothka, Jeff Prosise, Catherine Heller, and Shawn Wildermuth.

And locally from our neck of the woods, be sure to come and see Andrew Brust, Chip Lemmon, David Laribee, Bill Wolff, Ed Blankenship, Tony Lombardo, and Grant Hinkson!
