As you know MIX07 will be at Las Vegas on April 30 – May 2nd this year.
I’m sure this would be the best conference for me, but can’t afford to go there, bouuuuhhh 🙁

If you feel like me, you’ll be happy to know that you’ll find lots of free content to download (Videos, Powerpoint, Demos, Hands-On Lab) about these topics :

  • Windows Presentation Foundation
  • ASP.NET AJAX
  • Gadgets
  • RSS
  • WPF /E

At this location:
