What kind of content will be offered at MIX? Sessions at MIX will be focused on two main scenarios that will help you stay on the cutting edge of technology, while at the same time enable you to further monetize your web offerings!
Next Generation Content & Commerce
A plain old HTML experience is no longer good enough for your most frequent (and most valuable) users. AJAX is setting new standards for responsiveness and usability, visitors are expecting increasingly-sophisticated customization and personalization options, and rich media integration is unlocking new revenue streams. But building these richer sites can be difficult and expensive.
Microsoft's Dean Hachamovitch (General Manager, Internet Explorer team) hosts this exploration of how technologies like IE7, "Atlas" (Microsoft's new AJAX framework), Windows Live!, the Windows Presentation Foundation and InfoCard can take your browser-based content and commerce experiences to another level and increase earnings, while minimizing development and maintenance costs.
User Experience Beyond the Browser
As web-based content and services become increasingly indispensable, users are expecting to interact with your offerings in new ways and in new locations.
Microsoft's Joe Belfiore (Vice President, eHome division) hosts this overview of your options for boosting revenues by building "sticky" experiences that follow the user outside the browser, into the living room and on the go. Some of the specific technologies that will be discussed include: RSS, the Windows Sidebar, Office 12, Windows Mobile and Windows Media Center/Xbox 360.
