I got back home yesterday’s evening after ~20 hours on flights. Wrapping Up the MIX11 ExperienceThis is the time to wrap up the MIX11 conference experience. Here are all the posts I wrote during the conference:

Summary of MIX11 announcements -

  • IE10 Preview 1 was released and can be download from here
  • A new tools update for ASP.NET MVC3 was released
  • WebMetrix got an update
  • Windows Azure has some new features
  • The next version of Windows Phone 7 – Mango – is coming soon
  • Silverlight 5 beta is available for download
  • Kinect Windows SDK is being built and will be available soon

I got to meet a lot of new people and also hooked up with people I met in MIX10. All in all, since I came with no expectations then I can tell that the conference was better then MIX10 in its content but there were less announcements then in last year.
