Most people probably already know that Microsoft’s MIX09 event took place last week. Because I am specialized in Microsoft development, this event has introduced a lot of interesting new stuff.
But because there are so many people already blogging about the new releases and new developments, that I think it is really not necessary for me to start writing about it. For those interested I have a little link-list here about some of this published information:
- All the MIX Sessions
- Internet Explorer 8 RTM with Tim Sneath’s blog why you want IE8
- Tim Heuer – What’s new in Silverlight 3
- Dr. WPF about the Silverlight vs WPF
- Jeff Day about Expression Web 3
The most interested I’ve seen so far is the new release of Blend. In this version there will be a great support of prototyping. This goes by the name of sketch flow and a session-video about this can be watched here. This with (finally) the integrated support for Team System, will be a great way for quickly creating impressions of the application within the ALM vision.
For all the new features in Blend 3 I want to redirect you to the following posts:
- Download the release preview
- Christian Schorman – Blend 3 overview
- Christion Schorman – Sketching and Prototyping in Expression Blend

For our Dutch readers, Martin Tirion of Microsoft Netherlands has got some nice highlights posts about the MIX event:
