I’m going to Mix ’07

Plane tickets have been booked.
Hotel has been booked.
Right so – I’m off to Mix ’07 at the end of the month.
I’ve never been to Las Vegas before so it should be fun.
Now all I have to do is try and nab one Mr. B. Gates for a quick hallway demo of Pixenate™:-)

There are 117 sessions so there’s a lot to choose from. Some of the sessions I’ll definitely be attending are…

PANEL DISCUSSION: Services on the Web: Build or Buy
Speaker(s): Jeff Barr – Amazon.com, Matt Goyer – Redfin, Don MacAskill – SmugMug, George Moore – Microsoft, Aric Weiker – Microsoft

PANEL DISCUSSION: Scrubbing Your AJAX
Speaker(s): Daniel Egan – Odyssey Consulting Group, Dennis Hurst – S.P.I. Dynamics, Scott Isaacs – Microsoft, Joshua J. Pennell – IOActive

PANEL DISCUSSION: Designing the Perfect Podcast Player
Speaker(s): Dave Winer

Navigating the Programmable Web
Speaker(s): Don Box – Microsoft, Steve Maine – Microsoft

Microformats: Data Formats That Put Humans First
Speaker(s): Tantek Çelik – technorati.com

Designing with AJAX: Yahoo! Pattern Library
Speaker(s): Bill Scott – Yahoo!

Thinking in CSS: How to Build Great Looking Sites
Speaker(s): Molly Holzschlag – Digital One Corporation

Anyone who thinks this is a microsoft-only event – take note – those are some pretty heavyweight non-badge-wearing names at the bleeding edge of web development.

    Vegas is great, especially if u’re on your own or with ‘the lads’

    i’d classify it as one of the wonders of the world and worth a trip 4 all. Many think its too brash etc.. but its worth a visit.

    Beware of trying 2 find accomodation when there’s lots of conventions on!

    Have fun.

    Yup, I’m going too Walter – the Cork Mafia hits Vegas!!!

    As Paul said I think we should try to get some time in to see the Grand Canyon too.
