Piles of interesting stuff going on at Mix 10 this week. Here's a link rollup with all the details and downloads that you might care about. (As well as a few blatant plugs for my own sessions.)

First: Watch Day 1 and Day 2 keynotes on demand. See recorded sessions here.

Personally, I presented:

Enjoy! I'll update this post as videos become available. I've still got a panel and a talk left!

There's a typo in your URL to nerddinner! A lot of that looks awesome...

Any chance you could share the source code for the MVC-based eCommerce application that you demoed during MIX10 keynote?
March 17, 2010 13:43
Fahin - Absolutely. James Senior, the author of the demo will be putting that code up, and I'll be following up with a series of blogs posts on it in much more detail.

Simon - Thanks, fixed!

Is there any way to install the IE9 Developer Preview on Windows Server 2003 or XP?

I tried the Application Verifier to lie on the system version, but it doesn't seem to work (or I used the wrong versions)

@Filini IE 9 will be Vista and Windows 7 only as far as I know. It requires modern API's for the graphics to gain the hardware acceleration (Direct2D among others).

It's been a great MIX this year, lots of technologies not just for web developers but also crossing the boundaries with Silverlight, I have enjoyed quite a few of the video streams already.

Think my next phone has to be a Windows Phone.

The Expression Blend 4 Beta link seems to wrong at the moment.

@Pete: I know, but I wanted to try it anyway, to see how it makes the system explode :-)

Thanks for posting the linky, been searching for awhile :)

Nice roundup Scott. Have been particularly taken by the news of IE9, but also by Expression Blend 4. Is Blend being upgraded independent of the Expression Suite, or is there a full Suite update in the works as well?

Lots of great stuff and exciting news from MIX10! Right now I'm downloading a bunch of the various videos and looking forward to watch them. I couldn't help thinking that it would be nice if they were on a torrent, though - might speed up things a bit (and save MS some bandwidth?).

I was at MIX, sorry I missed you and I was told by everyone that the RC of Visual Studio 2010 supports Silverlight 4 development but every link I find (yours and the one on MSDN) but states that to do Silverlight 4 development you need Visual Sutdio 2010 Beta 2 (as the RC will not support). Any thoughts on this?

Thanks for the links.. Will help a lot..

Thanks for the summary Scott. I installed all these bits on my PDC Laptop and things are working all good. 1 thing which I liked to most in WP7 is the way the text is not squeezed to fit in the screen . . . . Can't wait to touch the actual device. Do we have any dates for the device? Especially in India ?
March 23, 2010 19:07
Thanks Scott. To help ease my anxiety, do you have an ETA on when the source code will be posted? :)
March 24, 2010 1:51
Fahin - I'll ask James. I expect this week or early next.
March 24, 2010 12:37
Hey Scott.

I just watched your nerd dinner talk video. Very interesting. Learned a lot.

BTW. what are you using to search for classes in VS2010? It looked like one of those jazzy Resharper searches but you were opening some window and typing class name in it and going to it. The res I watched the video at wasn't the best so couldn't see it.

Siimo - That's "Ctrl + comma."

Reviewed some of the videos for inspiration on my new blog header.... I won't spoil the mistery but check it out and say what you think :)
Link is on the footer.

Hi, what is the limitation of using Windows Phone Developer Tools CTP? I'm far from a coder/developer but I think I have a pretty brilliant idea for my industry, and wondered how manageable a product this for (a. myself, b. what the scope may be if needing to outsource). Would/could a novice and/or experienced coder individually accomplish a high-level application through this? I'll dig deeper into your blog. You seem to have a strong sense of industry tools.
