Newsletter for designers and interactive developers - Issue 7
On September 29th over 600 attendees saw the light at REMIX 2009 in Kinepolis Brussels.
Thank you all of you that took the time to join us for a day packed with sessions!

You didn’t attend? No worries, we made sure everything is available to be watched at your own leisure via on-demand videos. Starting with the joint keynote where we take you over the evolution we have seen in the Microsoft web stack since our first Mix Essentials event last year. We can really say a lot has evolved since then, with the release of Silverlight 2 in October 2008 and Silverlight 3 just five months ago in July. Along with the Silverlight technology we have also seen the evolution of the tools, with rapid prototyping in Expression Blend SketchFlow, the evolution of the NUI (Natural User Interface) with the Microsoft Surface device and the whole platform with the Microsoft Web Platform Installer.

Our partners were an important part of the whole event and we invite you to watch our partner videos for which you can find easy links here on the right.

Enjoy the reading and the watching, and stay in the light!
