ReMIX Australia 2010 Wrap Up

I was fortunate enough to be invited to speak at ReMIX Australia on my favourite subject, DotNetNuke!  This was the first time I have done a session that actually had slides and no Visual Studio code, so it was a bit nerve racking as i couldn’t rely on the coolness of new stuff to carry my session.  I spoke about the evolution of DotNetNuke from a code example to a worldwide project/product.  I also spoke about working in an open source project and how it has enhanced my career no end.  The whole video will be available soon I’m told.  Thanx to everyone who gave me feedback on my session, happily it was all good so I’m pretty happy about that.

The really cool thing about ReMIX is that it wasn’t just a Microsoft event, there were speakers from other stacks as well.  Check out the list of speakers here.  Having speakers from other technologies really added a lot of cred to the conference as it wasn’t just a MS love in, it really was a “web” love in :)

The keynote was also pretty cool.  The demo really showed off how rich media and multiple devices are coming together now to provide more control to the consumer and give us all a better experience watching media of all forms.  The personal instant replay feature they showed was really cool.  I’d love to go to the footy and watch replays on my phone.

I went along to a few of the sessions after I got mine done and the rush had subsided.  Went to see my neighbour and friend Malcolm Sheridan do a session on MVC2 which was informative as I don’t do any MVC being a DNN developer.  Mind you after hearing about MVC2 and BigFootMVC that might be changing soon.

I also saw Alex Mackey a colleague from Readify do a session on the new stuff in ASP.Net 4, great stuff, I also managed to score a copy of his new book.  The last session I went to was by the Knight Brothers who have a new company Xamling that specialises in Silverlight and WPF projects.  Their session on designers and developers working together was very good and showed a lot of the power of Blend and Visual Studio working together.

All in all a very good conference and one im happy to have spoken 3 out of the last 4 years.  See you there next year.
