My Interview for “Bytes by MSDN” is Live

Normally, I’m the interviewer for these things, but at this year’s Microsoft TechEd I was interviewed by Mike Benkovich of Microsoft.  i talk mostly about Silverlight and the Windows Phone 7 and it’s about 6 minutes long.  …and I told the fantastic folks who produce the “Bytes by MSDN” series that I would blog it.  so, here we go:

- The best place to watch it – I assume – is on the Microsoft properties:  MSDN

- Social networking engines: YouTube, Facebook, Twitter

Channel 9 Live at Visual Studio 2010 and Silverlight 4 Launch

In addition to the 3 sessions i am doing on Tuesday at the Visual Studio 2010 and SL4 launch I am going to “anchor” for:

Channel 9 Live at Visual Studio 2010 Launch at 3pm on Monday April 12th

The Channel 9 team will be broadcasting live, unscripted and 100% interactive from DevConnections 2010 in the Bellagio Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas on April 12, 2010 as part of the Visual Studio 2010 Launch.  Similar to what the Channel 9 team has done at Mix ’10 and PDC ’09, they will be soliciting questions via Twitter as well as questions from the audience. 

My episode is: “VS2010: The evolution to rich innovative applications – Silverlight & WPF” and I will try to keep Rocky Lohtka and Billy Hollis on track. I was selected because supposedly I am the only capable of containing them. You cannot control them; you can only hope to contain them. 

Details:

http://channel9.msdn.com/posts/NicFill/Channel-9-Live-at-Visual-Studio-2010-and-Silverlight-4-Launch/
