Later this month we're doing AngleBrackets again, you may have heard. Last spring we had a blast with folks like Lea Verou, Denise Jacobs, John Papa, and myself.

I miss the MIX conference. It was a fun web-focused conference with developers, designers, and web heads of all types. AngleBrackets, I think, is trying to bring MIX back.

This time we're going even "awesomer" with Douglas Crockford and Scott Guthrie!


We've got a great schedule lined up with Ward Bell, Elijah Manor, Miguel Castro, Michelle Bustamante, and lots more!

There's also pre- and post-conference workshops on User Experience, PhoneGap, Essential HTML5, Single Page apps, as well as "Fun with Functions with Douglas Crockford" himself!

I am really looking forward to this event.
To bad we don't get Mads Kristensen and his "Visual Studio Web Essentials" awesomeness.

+1 for Mads

Wish I could be there but not possible from the UK - will the content be available online as videos?

I miss Mix too, got to enjoy the one they did in London, was trying to work out Vegas but...

So I was really excited by the prospect of the event in Orlando as for various reasons that's more achievable for me.

Except that I'm not sure you could possibly have picked a worse week...

That's the middle of the UK Easter holidays and the single most popular fortnight to visit Orlando, every flight (from/to the UK) and much of the accommodation will be stuffed.

Sad face.

I'd better not attend an event in Vegas, lest I be seen as a rockstar. ;)

Isnt the time to move to cloud meetings ? especially all here are web gurus

There are two obvious merits in going to a physical conference or similar event, first the ability to focus on the event and the content - you're there to a purpose and the very fact of being away from your normal place of work can help focus on "learning".

Second is the contact with new and different people (or sometimes familiar people that you only see at the odd conf) with similar interests it provides a different opportunity to learn - and again in an environment that to some extent encourages interaction.

There are online conferences - and there are session recordings from many great conferences too, but its not quite the same as being there.

Is the "b" suffix the new ".net"? The Schedule page has you and Scott Hunter hosting a possibly riveting "Whatb" session, which is a coincidence since Paul Litwin is also having a "Whatb" session. Jeff Fritz has an "lb" session. In addition, your panel session is about "ASP.NETb".

(Good luck with the conference and I look forward to seeing some videos or at least hearing about it.)

Would the videos be available online later as like mix?

@James Murphy

I understand that "being there" I will get more out of the conference but schedule, time cost and budget simply do not align for many to attend these things in person.

I am willing to pay for a "live feed" or videos after the fact to help keep this alive.

Is it possible to get this event on DVD?
