Microsoft announces speaker lineup for MIX conference

Last year, Microsoft’s MIX conference offered the first real glimpse of what Windows Phone 7 was to offer. This year’s event will be a source of information on the major functionality coming in the Mango update. For those interested, Microsoft has announced their speaker lineup. Keynote speakers will include Joe Belfiore and Scott Guthrie of the Windows Phone team and .Net development respectively. Also of note will be a keynote featuring Dean Hachamovitch of the Internet Explorer team.

Conference sessions will include topics on everything from XNA to Application design to overviews of the various development tools.

  • I can't wait for MiX, should be packed with lots of WP7 news this time around.
  • I was really hoping for another existential design rant from Bill Buxton, and something from Albert Shum on the future of Metro. Still, looks like there'll be a few good design-related sessions and I'm sure we'll get some teasers on what to expect in the following months. I'm particularly looking forward to the "The Tale of Two Apps" session with the creators of Surfcube and Cocktail Flow, two of the very few WP7 apps I've purchased.
